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 […]
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.

But a point must be made that is […]
Take a look at this picture:
What does it show you? Nothing? OK – what does it tell you?
Now, look at that picture again, this time paying attention to the countries Obama either has attacked or in which he is encouraging / enabling Iran’s hegemony:
What is the theology of the nations Obama has attacked? Sunni. Of those he has aided? Shia.
Not to leave out of the picture Afghanistan and Pakistan, but Obama has – yet – to attack either (with the exception of the bin Laden raid in Pakistan and a bunch of drone strikes, […]
