    The Arab world's silence has left the last word to those we call extremists While Israel receives unanimous western support, this crisis is dragging the region ever faster into the abyss Alain Gresh Tuesday August 22, 2006 The Guardian (UK) Killers slaughter dozens of civilians in Iraq every day just because they are Sunni Muslims. Suicide attacks are increasingly common in Afghanistan, where they used to be unknown. On the Gaza Strip, 1.5 million Palestinians are caught in a trap, hemmed in by the Israeli offensive and the decision by the US and the EU to freeze all direct aid....

    WASHINGTON, March 23, 2006 – Americans need to recognize the sacrifices made by men and women in the military, whose service has liberated millions of people in the Middle East and made this country more secure, President Bush said yesterday in Wheeling, W.Va. "America has got to appreciate what it means to wear the uniform today and honor those who have volunteered to keep this country strong," Bush said to an audience of military families at the Capitol Music Hall. "All of us should agree with the fact that we have a remarkable country when people who know that they're...

    U.S. MARINE CORPS FORCES, PACIFIC, CAMP H. M. SMITH, Hawaii (Dec. 5, 2005) -- The 3rd Marine Regiment color guard led the largest community parade in the state of Hawaii during the 43rd annual Kaneohe Bay Christmas Parade, Dec. 3. If you’re not accustomed to a Hawaiian winter you would have found yourself a bit confused as to what this parade was for; the typically warm weather and the “Celebration of Freedom” theme made it as much like a 4th of July celebration than Christmas. Kaneohe celebrated not only Christmas but also all the men and women who serve to...

    Greek gods and those who doubted them Gregory Elder For the Daily Facts It was a bad day in the year 406 B.C. Euripides, an elderly playwright, was wandering around the palace, skulking in his gloom. For decades he had dedicated himself to the theater and written and directed more than 90 plays, performed before thousands of people. Yet for all his pains, he had won prizes for only three of his dramas, a minuscule number compared to his rivals Sophocles and Aeschylus. More than once, he had been held up to public ridicule by the tart-tongued comedian Aristophanes. In...

    Some bad ideas look even worse at second glance. That's true of legislation that would potentially protect rogue police officers from scrutiny. The measure has been reintroduced in the Legislature, where it died last year. It deserves the same quick burial this time. Under the bill, statements made by law enforcement officials in internal investigations would no longer be subject to the state's Freedom of Information Act. The statements could be disclosed only if the individual responsible for them gave written consent or if a court subpoenaed them. The first is highly unlikely, the latter an unnecessary obstacle to the...

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 25, 2005 – The U.S. is determined to deny radical groups the support and sanctuary of outlaw regimes like Syria and Iran, President Bush said here today. Speaking to the Joint Armed Forces Officers' Wives Luncheon at Bolling Air Force Base, Bush said that these governments have a long history of collaboration with terrorists and deserve no patience from the victims of terror. "Any government that chooses to be an ally of terror has chosen to be an enemy of civilization," Bush said. "The civilized world must hold those regimes to account." The U.N. Security Council will hear...
