On Terrorism

    "America cannot solve the most pressing problems on our own, and the world cannot solve them without America." (Jan 13, 2008 before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee considering her nomination as US. Secretary of State.)
    I'm putting this on the board so that people can easily how long it will take to have the administration attack Iran over their enriched uranium announcement. Both the presdient and the Secretary of State are on record as saying that discussion of invasion or attack is not actively being pursued. Pick a date for the lie to come back to haunt them.
  • ESCAPE FROM BAGRAM (November 7, 2005)
    The spectacle of four men escaping from Bagram Prison, and then creating a news clip for the Arab press on how to do it, is simply the latest episode that shows our ineptness at dealing with this kind of war. It would be in the military's best interests to stop worrying about Rumsfeld's image, and start thinking about to either win or disengage. Sadly, the side issue here is that the Army is getting ready to prosecute a young soldier for mistreating one of the men that escaped. The Army will, of course, give him the usual fair trial, and then convict him--even without direct evidence. Hearsay is what they will use, and as the Army prosecutor said in court, "If we get him back, we will make him available to the defense." When will this stupidity stop?
  • RESPECT FOR ISLAM (October 7, 2005)
    HRH Prince Charles in the forefront of those who argue for a reasonable and rational approach to Islam. Presently, he and his wife Camilla are in the US for a tour. Hopefully they will have an opportunity to present their views on some public forum. Prince Charles relates to what many of us have been saying for some time--Islam is a religion of peace, not war, and that small minority of muslims, and non-muslims, who hide under the Islamic banners, should be condemned for what they do--not the people of Islam in general.

Homeland Security

    Reading the current press, one would assume there might be a groundswell for abolishing FEMA among the Members of Congress and the Senate. What would that accomplish? Perhaps it would be better to once again make it independent of the thoroughly ineffective Department of Homeland Security? Comments would be appreciated.
