God's Country
Here is a great editorial from Time magazine that says people support the idea of war in Iraq because it's been couched in these dualistic, good vs. evil terms. After all, who doesn't want to "fight evil"? But, somehow, the concept of war is comforting to a population that feels like it's under seige, and I don't just mean from terrorism either.

Favorite quote:"The identification of cross and flag after Sept. 11 needs to be called what it is: idolatry."
