Once again, our glorious blue orb completes its annual circuit around the sun. For us, it’s the 230th such circuit since the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
For Americans, it’s a time for barbecues, fireworks, family outings to the park or get-togethers in the back yard. It’s a time to ooh and ahh at the spectacular pyrotechnics displays. In between bites of the hot dogs, we remember that the fireworks recall the turning points in US military history when we won the critical battles on the road to freedom and independence.
For our allies in Europe, Asia, Australia, North America and the Indian subcontinent, it’s a time for head-scratching and disbelief: where are these blokers headed, and why don’t they tell us what they’re doing? As for the other continents and regions, it might be presumptuous to invoke the term “allies”.
