    After an internal debate, the Obama administration has decided to tell American commercial airlines to comply with China's demands to be notified of any flights through a broad swath of international airspace that it has claimed as an air defense zone, officials said Friday. Even as the United States continued to send military planes into the zone in defiance of China's declaration, officials said they expected civilian planes to go along with Beijing's new demands out of an abundance of caution. Officials said they were worried about an accident or unintended confrontation that could endanger civilian passengers. The administration’s decision...

    Thursday, June 16, 2005 The European Union: Channeling the Spirits of Chamerblain and Pétain An Associated Press report tells us that the European Union has renewed contacts with Hamas despite strong Israeli objections. It seems the E.U. is even considering reviewing whether or not to continue to consider Hamas a terrorist group. Tell me this: how many suicide bombings, Qassam rocket attacks, shootings, and other forms of murder of innocent civilians are required before a group is permanently branded a terrrorist group? If such attacks are ongoing (and they are) why would anyone in their right mind consider Hamas anything...

    "CHIRAC IS A WORM"(The Sun of London finds "le mot juste" for the verminous French leader) The French are once again doing what they do best. In the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer, near Omaha Beach in France, the bodies of 10,000 Americans are buried beneath crosses and Stars of David. These young men died saving the world from a tyrant named Adolf Hitler, whom nearly all of the French, for their own cowardly and hateful reasons, either passively appeased or actively supported.

    The Immoral Cynicism of France and Germany By Tov B. Brog February 18, 2003 - Why are the French and Germans so determined in their opposition to the United States in our efforts against Saddam Hussein? A simple answer could be that they're jealous. Another might be that they're opposed in principle to the use of force. Well, maybe. But consider the cost of that opposition. The United States is one of Frances largest trading partner, outside of the EU itself, buying over $31 billion in French goods every year. So, angering us over a matter of petty pride seems...
