Cheating Ourselves

     Because patriotism has come to mean, for far too many of the hopelessly brainless, stockpiling as many weapons as we can, most in Congress would buy new, idiotically expensive weapons systems no matter the cost, no matter the quality, even without daily threats from weapons indRead full post »

While it is true that no one, here,

Snipping Israel, Hamas

The first piece, from Mr. Krauthhammer, is likely the first time I've read the man and have, overall, agreed with him (even as I do not hold with what he says about the film. "Munich", here).
