A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Many thanks to Kathy Kelly for sketching out the "grey," consequences of enduring war. The trouble is that wars are launched today in terms of black and white, or a genuine lack of understanding or disregard for what is left behind once the "mission," to enhance our national security has been declared. Except for those who have served our military, Americans have do not UNDERSTAND, nor ever seen war. This ignorance and feeling of helplessness as a result of the bleatings of war-makers and profiteers' paid for congressional reps, makes too many complicit. We have not had war within our shores since the 1860s. All subsequent world wars, police actions and anti-terror missions have been "over there." Thank god we do not understand firsthand, but our numbness allows the war-making to continue.

Thanks, Kathy. You've always been so courageous for peace. American is lost in a dark night. Many of us once thought Obama was a beacon of hope. Now there is nothing but war without end.
