In the red zone, a faith in the deliverance of everydayness, a sober belief in tasks and duties, in moving forward with the daily agenda, is sustaining people and families and communities.

American voices are influencing discussion about Syria. That is good, because it would not have happened if the president had decided to strike first, instead of bringing the matter to Congress for a vote.
The Srebrenica genocide was a dark chapter in an already nasty Balkan conflict. One group committed ethnic cleansing against another, as a largely passive international community helplessly, and needlessly, watched it from the sidelines.
