It's Constitution Day in America

Constitution Day, September 17, 2007.

This is the day Americans, those who know about it, at least, celebrate the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution of the United States of America. This year is the 220th anniversary of the event.

This is part of what the war on terror is about. That Constitution and its amendments spell out how America's government works, what rights,and what responsibilities, we and our representatives have.

So, here's to the oldest, and the shortest, national constitution in the world.

It's not perfect, but it's the best we've got.

Check out "Constitution Day."

Our constitution is the shortest?

Wow. I hate to think how long the others are.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
