Sure there are things to stand for. Due process...the possibility of not being cannibalized by people waving flags and attempting to delete the word French and throwing gallons of French wine down the drain. That is VERY UNAmerican.

(Remember what happened to the Kurds in 1991 and how they were first used and deluded and then dropped?)
