Venues & Results: 5-Star Failures

History often turns on seemingly disconnected events. In 1945, had no one remembered that several tons of uranium had been stored in an abandoned lighthouse, would we have had enough to make the bombs that ended the war & altered the world?

Had it not rained so hard for so long prior to the Battle of Waterloo, would Napoleon have lost?

If the nuclear “negotiations” with Iran were not being held in 5-star accommodations in Geneva, but in some third world hell hole… would they be over by now?

Dumb question? Are you sure?

Had JFK not put down the […]

Dr WR Mead Joins Eyes Wide Shut Pundocracy

Dr Mead, normally on-point, is – as are all the other pundits refusing to think outside the box of traditional presidents (all the more ironic as Obama was elected because he was NOT traditional) – wrong again on Obama making “mistakes” in his strategy re: ISIS.

It’s amazing how many people, after so much time, refuse to understand Obama. He is not making mistakes.

If he wanted to expand Shia to the Med what, exactly would he do differently?

He is using the brutality of Sunni ISIS to demoralize Iraq so much they are willing to turn to Iran […]

Obama’s Gathering Storm

A friend recently wrote to me that the world today reminds her of the “Gathering Storm,” referring to Churchill’s book of that name documenting the lead-up to WW2 in Europe (which, if you have not yet read it, is a must for understanding that war – and today’s rising tensions). I wrote back that the better analogy is the sovietization of Russia under Lenin and Stalin, and the susbequent destruction of law, domestic personal liberties, markets, opportunity, living standards, education and employment, all of which American Democrats – assisted by their GOP “opponents” – are doing in our […]

Sowing the Seeds of Failure

We can wring our hands and blame one another and point fingers all we want, but people need to face reality regarding the Middle East and South Asia.

  1. With Obama’s “deal,” Iran will develop nuclear weapons.
  2. The only way to avoid a nuclear exchange between either Iran and Israel, or between Iran and Saudi Arabia (or Iran and any Sunni country who has nukes (Pakistan) or who can buy them (from Pakistan, DPRK, Russia??)) will be for Israel either to make a nuclear strike on Fordow (too deep for any conventional attack), or – perhaps – an EMP strike over

The Dangerous World Obama is Intentionally Creating

I hope that everyone understands that Obama – intentionally – is creating a nuclear nightmare in the Middle East and South Asia, and that the only way out will be a nuclear attack on at least one nation and its people.

Once Iran is close enough to a nuke to reach breakout, Israel will nuke the Iranian underground facilities, which are too deep for any conventional bunker-buster to destroy. Obama will have left them no choice but to do so.

And Saudi Arabia and Egypt – and every other Sunni state in the region – will be cheering […]
