Just a reminder that until 6 p.m. EST tonight, FP is still taking your questions for Alasdair Roberts. Roberts is the author of "The War We Deserve," the provocative cover story in our current print issue.

As his title suggests, Roberts believes the U.S. public is getting precisely the war it asked for. "The American public at large is more deeply implicated in the design and execution of the war on terror than it is comfortable to admit," he writes. "In the six years of the war, through an invasion of Afghanistan, a wave of anthrax attacks, and an occupation of Iraq, Americans have remained largely unshaken in their commitment to a political philosophy that demands much from its government but asks little of its citizens."
