    Well, that didn't take long. A "senior Obama administration official" is breaking ranks to call out his boss in Time magazine about Libya.In an article published online Sunday night, Time writer Massimo Calabresi buries the lede by holding the bombshell quotes until the fourth paragraph, preferring to write about himself the first three.The quotes have the official all but calling Obama a liar over his stated reasons for going to war in Libya. The article also has the official saying Obama is knowingly taking a "huge gamble" because al Qaeda has cells in Libya that could benefit from the the...

    I've received a much-appreciated request to follow up my post about the "Communism at 'Peace'" website ( communiststats.com ), with a direct link to the printable flyer available at the bottom of the home page: http://communiststats.com/peacetimeflyer.html .

The hope is that volunteers (anonymous or otherwise) will post the flyers at schools, community colleges, universities, coffee shops (heck...phone poles), etc. to reach those people whose minds haven't yet been tainted. Needless to say, your help...

    Communism at "Peace" ^ | April 22, 2017 | J McCachren
    Those of you who embrace freedom, please help teach the next generation about communism’s horrors. Steer them toward “Communism at ‘Peace’: An Outline of Non-Wartime Communist Atrocities” ( communiststats.com ). Unique demographics are used (e.g., villagers, the religious, homosexuals, landowners, etc.) in a way that personalizes 85 million deaths.. torture.... imprisonments... QUICKLY making them real to even the least engaged adolescents (and as a teacher, I'm very familiar with un-engaged millennials). I've seen and heard these students flinch in repulsion. Your help promulgating this information--particularly to those students who are about to be preyed upon by their professors--would be appreciated...

    The new Christian Bale film 'The Promise' won't be out in theaters until Friday, but it's IMDB rating has already been tanked by tens of thousands of one-star reviews. In the film, set at the end of the Ottoman Empire, Bale plays an Associated Press reporter covering the Armenian genocide. While the atrocities are largely considered to be the first genocide of the 20th century, Turkey still refuses to use the term in reference to the mass killing. After hearing the topic of the film, trolls organized on a Turkish message board similar to 4Chan or Reddit to protest the...

    John Kerry doesn’t come late to the betrayal of friends. He has had considerable practice. In 1971, when he was a young lieutenant just back from Vietnam, where he was a decorated skipper of a Swift Boat patrolling the Mekong River, he appeared before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee to pay his “respects” to the American soldiers, sailors and Marines he fought a war with. Representing all those veterans, he told the senators, he wanted to talk about war crimes he said “were committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command.”...

    The Rape of Nanking and the evil human experiments done by Unit 731 usually come to mind when we think of Japanese war crimes. Unfortunately, those awful incidents weren’t isolated cases. Fueled by racism, fanaticism, and finally desperation as their defeat seemed inevitable, the Japanese in World War II perpetrated several acts on par with Nazi war crimes. 10Laha Airfield MassacreFebruary 1942 This ghoulish event, which killed more than 300 Australian and Dutch POWs, followed the Japanese capture of the Indonesian island of Ambon. Allegedly as an act of reprisal after the Allies destroyed one of their minesweepers, the Japanese...

    Al-Afari And Away: Ignoring the Saddam-ISIS link by Daniel Clark During two Republican primary debates, presidential frontrunner Donald Trump claimed that Saddam Hussein had been an enemy of Islamic terrorism, and argued that he should have been left in power to kill terrorists, so that our soldiers didn't have to. Considering that, one might think a reminder of Saddam's moustache-deep involvement in terrorism, along with the fact that he'd retained an active chemical weapons program between wars, would be a major news story. One might even expect that a story about a former member of Saddam’s regime helping ISIS to...

    Do psychopathic dictators spawn monsters? Jay Nordlinger's answer is a qualified yes. And it's the qualifiers that make Children of Monsters: An Inquiry Into the Sons and Daughters of Dictators such a riveting and informative read. In the easy, elegant style that is to be expected from a senior editor of National Review, Nordlinger coaxes his reader into a universe of evil all the more astonishing for its ubiquity: the twenty men whose offspring he selects for scrutiny span the globe. China, Japan, Russia, North Korea, Cambodia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Cuba, Haiti, five African countries (the Democratic Republic of the...

    Children victims of the Armenian Genocide According to ancient tradition, Noah's Ark rested on Mount Ararat in the Armenian mountain range. Armenia's coat of arms has Mount Ararat with Noah's Ark on top. Armenian historian Movses Khorenatsi (410-490 A.D.) recounted the tradition that Noah's son Japheth had a descendant named Hayk who shot an arrow in a battle near Lake Van c.2,500 B.C., killing Nimrod, builder of the Tower of Babel who was the first powerful tyrant of the ancient world. Hayk is the origin of "Hayastan," the Armenian name for Armenia. Ancient Armenians may have had some relations with...

    The US reported that North Korea mistreated prisoners of war: soldiers were beaten, starved, put to forced labor, marched to death, and summarily executed. The KPA killed POWs at the battles for Hill 312, Hill 303, the Pusan Perimeter, and Daejeon—discovered during early after-battle mop-up actions by the UN forces. Later, a US Congress war crimes investigation, the United States Senate Subcommittee on Korean War Atrocities of the Permanent Subcommittee of the Investigations of the Committee on Government Operations reported that "... two-thirds of all American prisoners of war in Korea died as a result of war crimes." Although the...

Some Iraqi units have already been cut off from U.S. assistance over "credible" human rights violations, according to a senior military official on the Pentagon's Joint Staff.

    ABID HUSSAN took one step inside the foul-smelling prison cell and began to shake. Beads of sweat ran down his forehead and behind his gold-rimmed spectacles. The 45-year-old shopkeeper pointed to the electric cables hanging from the ceiling where President Saddam Hussein’s security police would torture him three times a day. People tried to elbow their way inside this impossibly small 6ft by 4ft torture chamber. They were anxious to sift through the documents carpeting the floor to see if it gave a clue as to what became of a loved one, or friend, who had been dragged inside here...

You're not supposed to speak ill of the dead, so I figured I'd get a head start.One of the landmark events of my Gen X youth was the 11-hour, internationally televised “Free Nelson Mandela” concert in 1988. Because, come on: how could you not be anti-apartheid? It was a no-brainer, risk-free cause, the type you could support without having to think about it too much or inviting unpopularity or controversy, right? Actually, no. Lots of big-name musicians who now boast of being on that concert roster...
