reading a post about piracy. A French warship did nothing; an American amphib fired on three of the boats before the pirates made it into territorial Somali waters.

In the larger context of Liberty and trading off, is it important to secure our nation's borders in order to protect all that we have? Or keep the barbarians from the gates (I know how you feel/think about the Iraq war. I am asking a hypothetical question)?

The piracy issue got me to thinking about really, what should our priorities be as a nation in terms of security but still able to maintain our global business relationships? China controls both ends of the Panama Canal, and Hugo Chavez is wanting to get a Socialist bloc going down in South America. China hasn't quit being Communist...

We are chasing OBL all over the 'Ghan and still haven't found him...
