North Korea Welcomes Sec of State Clinton…or not

July 24, 2009

North Korea is having none of the “Six Party Talks”; and maybe just diplomacy in general. Although Secretary of State Clinton still has hope that North Korea will come to the table about nuclear disarmament, North Korea has other ideas, calling the talks “dead” and “over”. And to make it absolutely sure we understood that they didn’t […]

Politics as Usual

July 20, 2009

The Obama administration has moved back the deadline for the task force assigned to advise on policy decisions dealing with terrorist detention, interrogation, and transferal to report. The detention report will be delayed six months and the policy report two months, Foxnews and MSNBCreported. This pushes back new anti-terrorism policies six months at least. The articles […]

What Actually Is Torture

June 1, 2009

Since late in President Bush’s second term, the argument has raged over what actually constitutes torture. Now as President Obama and Congress move to close Guantanamo Bay, arguments have become even more energetic. While I did, and still do, hold the position that waterboarding and sleep deprivation are not torture, I didn’t have any facts, […]

What is The BIg Deal?

May 25, 2009

As the battle rages over Guantanamo Bay, I have to ask, what is the big deal if Gitmo stays open? Why should Gitmo be closed? Any terrorists moved is being moved out of a very secure prison with a perfect record as far as escapes go. Even if they do escape, they still have to cross the Caribbean […]

Obama: The European President

April 23, 2009

Europe: The land where even passive Christianity is dying out quickly, but where the Jedi Religion has finally found a home. Girls join Boy Scouts, and people pay in cash for the extra carbon dioxide that they breathe out. Pacifism is the rule of day, being politically correct is law. Europe is the true land […]

I’ll Send a Stern Fax

April 13, 2009

North Korea’s recent test of their long range missile launching capabilities (yes, that is what it was) demonstrate once again why we can’t expect the international community to fight our battles, even if they are necessary. But our brave President has done something revolutionary, something that will stop our enemies in their tracks. He gave […]

A True Hero: Mosab Hassan Yousef

January 4, 2009

Yousef was born the son of a very influential Hamas leader. He lived out his childhood as a devout, faithful Muslim working for Hamas as anyone would expect. His family was educated to an extent that few people in the Middle East ever receive an opportunity for. But while held in an Israeli prison that Hamas had infiltrated, […]

Thoughts from an E-Mail

September 16, 2008

I got this as an E-Mail, thought it made an interesting point.   John Glenn (DEMOCRAT) said this —– It should make us all think a little: � � There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq in January. �In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January. �That’s […]

Terrorism: Why It’s a Threat

August 22, 2008

The Twin Towers go down, the world is shocked, so are we. A car bomb explodes, dozens killed, over a hundred injured. A shock wave tears off in all directions from the roadside bomb, a Humvee explodes; the damage isn’t too bad though, the troops are used to this by now. Why, we ask, why would anyone […]

Can we Finally come home in Victory?

August 20, 2008

I was checking the news today when I came across an article about how a deal may finally be struck to get us out of Iraq, victoriously. That’s right, according to this article, Iraqi and U.S. people have decided on a general horizon to be able to move troops out of Iraq. This is not a done […]
