    In an interview with KABC radio last week, Rep. Janice Hahn (D-CA) offered the liberal world view of globalism before nationalism last week during an interview about the on-going crisis in Iraq. Hahn said she was "kind of uncomfortable" with the concept that the United States could claim any moral authority in using military action. "I'm kind of uncomfortable with, you know, with the United States feeling that we do have some moral authority to go into these other countries and use military power to solve problems," the California lawmaker said. Hahn also invoked the United Nations as a basis...

    The Arab-Israeli conflict, is not really a conflict, it is a war – a war of the Arabs against the Jews. In many ways, this conflict has been a conflict between narratives. We who strongly support Israel have done a poor job in formulating a narrative which will combat the story spun by the other side. We can do better. The Durban conferences, the request for UN recognition of a unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood, and the general animus in the Middle East and elsewhere toward Israel and toward the Jews, what are they really about? Is the Durban conference...

    I M P E A C H M E N Th e a r --c l i n t o n --l o s e --i t by Mia T, 11.11.05   MIDDLING Twenty presidents rank higher than bill clinton and 20 rank lower. But this placement assumes equal weight for each of the presidential dimensions. And therein lies the flaw. If 9/11 taught us anything, it is that presidential character and moral authority count, and count most.4 If the variables are properly weighted, bill clinton will always come out dead last. That is, unless Americans are dumb enough...

  • German soldiers torture German Soldiers. Defense Minister will not step down.

    The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and German nightly news are reporting that 20 German soldiers are being charged to have allegedly tortured fellow German soldiers in terrorist negotiations training. Mr. Struck the German secretary of defense promises to look into this quickly. He does not however see any reason to step down. I was just wondering how the Germans are going to conduct the moral equivalency discussion now. Have they now also lost their face and moral leadership in the Arab world? Torture is torture right?

    Anti-Liberation Theology The clerics got it wrong on Iraq. by Joseph Loconte 05/05/2003, Volume 008, Issue 33 RELIGIOUS FIGURES who opposed the liberation of Iraq have a lot of explaining to do. Fashioning themselves prophets of peace, they caustically denounced the "rush to war." Having granted the United Nations an almost transcendent moral authority, they declared Operation Iraqi Freedom an "immoral" act of aggression. In the months leading up to the conflict, they made a litany of brash claims and gloomy predictions--all proven to be utterly false. Take their suggestion that Saddam Hussein was not the devil many made him...

    Life on Planet Bizarro David C. Stolinsky, M.D. Thursday, Feb. 13, 2003 A favorite science fiction theme is a man who wakes up in a world that seems to be the one he’s familiar with, but isn’t. Slowly he realizes he is in a parallel universe, where everything is almost what he’s used to, but not quite. He’s on Planet Bizarro. Sometimes I feel like that. Sometimes I feel that the world I knew has been exchanged for another world. World War II never happened. In the world I grew up in, World War II was the greatest catastrophe in...
