This year-old article on Chris Kyle, together with the comments below it, clearly illustrates the great divide in the US between those who decry the interventionist wars and those who insist that without our armed forces killing people all over the globe, we would not be free. I am not going to judge Kyle by this one article, not even having read his book, but I can say for certain I align more readily with the non-interventionists, and insist that the burden of proof lies with those who claim that their foreign wars protect my freedom. Repeition just doesn't cut it.
