“War–What It Is Good For”

Sensible commentary by Jonathan Turley in USA Today, jumping on negative reaction to a December 11, 2006, column in Washington Post by Brigid Schulte, What the Birthday Boy Wants: A War, about a birthday party for her 8 year old son, Liam, which had a World War 2 theme. Some parents refused to send their kids; some readers sent in letters saying she was awful. Turley reminds us that war is sometmies the price of freedom, and to say that it is always immoral is itself immoral.
