Parents of slaughtered military personnel in our Middle East adventurism try to comfort themselves that their offspring are now watching from heaven with approval as we prosecute those “wars.”

First of all, there is no possible reference in the Holy Bible or any equivalent text that those in heaven know or even care about what is going on, on Earth.

Second, if heaven is supposed to be a place of unbridled joy, then how does that compute with its inhabitants beaming down at the sicko-carnage of evil brought on by conspiring tyrants who manipulate public affairs and manage to destroy our youth? It is time our leaders admit that there is no constitutional justification for overseas aggression that is not specifically intended to defend attacks against the United States, and that the doctrine of “no entangling alliances” is as relevant now as it ever was.
