    Anyone who follows the developments in the Arab Islamic world will be struck by the complete absence of self-knowledge and introspection that characterizes these vexed cultures. Almost every problem is attributed to hostile external forces. The poverty and underdevelopment that plague most of the Arab world are the result of malicious machinations of Americans and Jews. This is no less true of the disaster in Darfur. Last week UPI reported that the Sudanese foreign minister Mustafa Osman Ismail had told journalists in Cairo that his government possessed "information that confirms media reports of Israeli support (for the rebels in Darfur)."...

It was like setting fire to a packet of grape Kool-Aid and taking a deep breath. Not an experience most people would remember fondly. But candy-flavored cigars, like the grape one I bought at a neighborhood grocery store, have become the hippest thing to hit the streets since neck tattoos and color-coordinated cell phones.

    Sen. John Kerry made his first forays into Cambodia during the Vietnam War as a Navy lieutenant on clandestine missions to deliver weapons to anticommunist forces. When he returned last week, the mission was official, but dicey nonetheless. At the request of the United Nations, Kerry is trying to broker a compromise on how to try leaders of the former Khmer Rouge regime, whose late 1970s reign of terror claimed the lives of some 1.7 million Cambodians. Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen wants to control any court looking into genocide charges, but U.S. and U.N. officials have demanded an international...

    IT IS THE prerogative of former presidents to write self-serving memoirs casting themselves in heroic terms. We don't begrudge Bill Clinton, who presided over an administration of significant accomplishments in many areas, a book-length (or even a two-book-length) highlighting of the ups, and a breezing-over of the downs, of his presidency. Yet Mr. Clinton's new book, "My Life," is also part of a long effort on its author's part to deny, and not just breeze over, his profound disrespect for the law when it inconvenienced him. In Mr. Clinton's alternate universe, in which many Democrats have also decided to live,...

    Baghdad – Saddam Hussein failed to anticipate the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, and even after hostilities had started, deluded himself that he was winning the war and could clinch a negotiated settlement through French and Russian mediation. According to newly uncovered secret documents, the former Iraqi regime never contemplated its imminent defeat and continued to function normally under Saddam's direct control, even as American tanks were closing in on Baghdad. While much has been made about intelligence failures in the West, it seems that Saddam's own senior officials, diplomats and spies offered him such a warped vision of the outside...

    War, by its very nature, does not make much sense. In recent days, though, the war in Iraq — and how it began — is sounding more and more like something out of "Alice in Wonderland." You think of the White Rabbit that started Alice down the slippery slope into Wonderland. And the Mad Hatter's tea party. And the Red Queen screaming "Off with their heads!"

    The chief inspector who led the U.S. search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq is offering a terrifying view of the last days of Saddam Hussein that confirms the wisdom of deposing a dictator who had descended into madness. David Kay leaves a post that gave him an up-close and personal look into Saddam's mind and arsenals, saying he believes Iraq did not have nuclear, chemical or biological weapons before America's invasion - but not for a lack of trying. Indeed, Kay says, Saddam was perfecting a weaponized version of the deadly poison ricin and trying to restart a...

The threats underscore the Republicans' tight control of Congress's power levers despite their narrow majorities in both houses, as well as the Democrats' mounting frustration with what they characterize as a dangerous drift toward a one-party government. The quarrel also reflects the increasing partisanship of both houses and the strains it puts on the Senate, which relies far more than the House on...

    Normally a president gets a boost in the polls when he addresses the nation from the White House.

That's on top of $79 billion already appropriated this year to cover the cost of the war. NO WONDER the voters are gagging. They don't blame Bush for terrorism or the weak economy, but they sense that he's adrift, that he has no exit plan for Iraq or solution for our economic woes other than letting the...

Speaking at the Edinburgh Book Festival, Clive Bromhall said that humankind's evolution has resulted in our present state of "infantilism," in which we break the primate mold by being playful, creative and childlike right into adulthood. "From men's obsession with swollen breasts to our constant search for a pseudoparental God, everything about the human species is infantile," Bromhall said in a lecture.

But at least one Democrat has now stepped up to the plate to give credit where he says credit is due - to former President Bill Clinton.

    Summer is the Democratic season of hope. Last year around this time, they launched a campaign against the impending war in Iraq. President Bush was in Crawford, Tex., playing cowboy when a front-page New York Times headline announced, "Top Republicans Break With Bush on Iraq Strategy." According to The Times, Brent Scowcroft, the national security adviser under Bush's father, thought the U.S. should be more unilateral. So did Henry Kissinger. House Majority Leader Dick Armey had voiced similar concerns. A mutiny was brewing. It soon emerged that Kissinger was actually in favor of the war. The posse of critics never...

    Bush's Cover-Up Precedes the Scandal NEW YORK--"When it's all said and done," Bush still confidently insists, "the people of the United States and the world will realize that Saddam Hussein had a weapons program." This once again begs the question of presidential dyslexia: You're supposed to find the WMDs before the war, silly rabbit! This bizarro Administration does everything bass-ackwards. The recession is hardest on the poor and middle-class, so Bush gives tax cuts to the rich. When an overwhelming invasion force was needed to secure Afghanistan and Iraq, Rumsfeld sent in a skeleton crew. Now that the citizens of...

    Clyde Prestowitz, a former Reagan aide, says that Bush could lose the next election if the fighting in Iraq continues and the WMD remain undiscovered For a moment in early May, American neoconservatives thought they had died and gone to heaven, so much did Bahgdad seem to them to resemble paradise. Their vision of an America that would shed its paper-tiger hesitation and boldly use its overwhelming military power to crush tyrannical regimes and reshape the world for decades to come by establishing American-style democracies in their place seemed well on its way to realisation. As the months have passed...

    Some time very soon, President George Bush is expected to sign a $400 billion bill adding a prescription-drug benefit to Medicare -- and he is sure to be flanked not only by Republicans but also by Democrats, perhaps including that arch-liberal, Senator Ted Kennedy. It's an image that is apt to drive former President Bill Clinton around the bend. The Democrats have, in effect, agreed to hand to Bush precisely the kind of politically precious legislative victory on health care that the Republicans went to any lengths to deny to Clinton back in 1994. Could it be that the Democrats...

    At last it can be told. The mystery of why New York Sen. Hillary Clinton was willing to sacrifice her self-respect and her dignity to stay in a humiliating marriage to ex-President Clinton is a mystery no longer. She did it to save America. In her book "Living History," Mrs. Clinton recalls that after she learned about Monica Lewinsky, "I knew what I did and said in the next days and weeks would influence not just Bill's future and mine, but also America's." "Bill's Presidency, the institutional Presidency and the integrity of the Constitution hung in the balance," Hillary recalls,...

Saddam is a mysterious person: He disappeared, and nobody knows where he can be hiding. Russian politician and Chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia Vladimir Zhirinovsky has suddenly become anxious about the fate of his best friend, which is how he himself refers to Saddam Hussein. In fact, Zhirinovsky may know something no intelligence agency in the world can even guess, not to mention the...

    Dictator's Collusion In The Iraq 'War' By Parviz Esmaeili The Tehran Times 4-9-3 Note - This is the first story to point in the direction of possible/probable answers to a number of key questions about the US-UK zionist subjugation of Iraq. When the Iraqis failed to blow a single bridge - a classic and mandatory defensive military strategy - suspicions arose immediately. Aside from a handful of oil well-head fires in the South, there was no effort to torch Iraq's oil assets by Saddam. The repeated deployment of the regular Iraqi army and the Guard into exposed areas in the...

    April 5, 2003, 4:37 AM EST NEW YORK (AP) _ Mayor Michael Bloomberg predicted publicly that he would return to office in the next citywide election. "I'm going to get re-elected, I don't know how to break that to anybody," he said during his weekly radio show on WABC-AM, saying his administration is "doing a good job." Mayor Bloomberg's popularity rating increased to 48 percent in February, even though he successfully got an 18.5 percent property tax hike passed. The mayor made the comments when speaking about his push for $600 million in union givebacks on the radio show. Also...

    ICONOCLAST DAILY NOTEBOOK.... Chew On This My Leftist Comrades.... Today's recommended reading (especially for all of Sunday's anti-War celebrants of Neville Chamberlain Day) is by excommunicated radical-left enthusiast, but truth teller extraordinaire, Christopher Hitchens. This essay, addressed to his "dear brothers and sisters, boys and girls, comrades and friends," first appeared on Seattle's Web site and then was reposted on David Horowitz's site under the title: "Chew On This My Leftist Comrades" And if anyone knows the illusions, evasions and follies of today's Neville Chamberlain vanguard, it's Mr. Far Left, 'Henry Kissinger Is The Devil Incarnate!' Hitchens. Referring...

    Remarks of Senator John Kerry December 3, 2002 At The City Club of Cleveland We come here at an important time. Every American understands the challenge of our economy in very personal ways. Lifetime savings have been wiped out by greed, bad judgment, criminal activity and the natural course of economic cycles. Jobs have been lost - retirements postponed - personal debt has increased and more and more of our fellow Americans are squeezed out of health care. Long term unemployment has doubled. The stock market has plunged more than 30 percent. We have seen the weakest level of economic...
