True or False: The Vatican is in Italy, and, it's the home of Pope Benedict XVI. If you answered "yes" to both of these questions, you're way ahead of the game. But I'll bet you didn't know that Vatican City is a separate country - the smallest nation state in the world - and its foreign policy is formulated by the Pope.
Just what is the Vatican's foreign policy? How is it projected abroad? What is its impact in today's world? Below are Tony's articles tracking Vatican foreign policy and its influence in today's world.
Remember when the Democrats tried to embarrass President Bush regarding his Air National Guard service? They accused him of everything from being favored because his name was Bush, to being a coward and a draft-dodger. All THAT did was to impugn the integrity and courage of those who had served, fought and in many cases, died while in the Army or Air National Guard and in the Reserves, from WWII through Iraq I, thereby losing the veteran's vote for their candidates, Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004. These articles were written on the subject of Mr. Bush's service. Enjoy!
