Earlier this week, I was thinking about what I wanted to post on my blog. Because of an article that I had read in First Things and the Israeli action against Hamas in Gaza, the Middle East was on my mind. I considered a post on Just War Theory, based on all the discussion from 2004, particularly by George Weigel and Michael Novak. I considered the similarities between the modern state of Israel and the Crusader Kingdoms of the 12th century, but then I read some history of the Crusades and concluded that the feudal system of government and the petty politics of the time made it way too complicated.
I really need to limit my posts to my areas of competence. The problem is, I don't have any. If I only posted on things about which I am an expert, I would have no posts. So be forewarned that any unattributed opinions you see on my blog are the ravings of a madman. Where they're anything more than that, I'll try to provide ample supporting links to more authoritative sources.
