Russia's Ukraine Adventure

Maybe I’m All Wrong About Putin and Poland

When you’ve stated your opinion or belief about something important, do you defend your belief to the hilt? Or do you immediately begin questioning your own conclusions? Most of my life, I would defend my opinion to the point of losing friends. Even if I was wrong. Even I knew I was wrong. I’m a coward,…

King Abdullah Kicks Obama Out of Saudia Arabia ? **Video Added**

You’d think American foreign policy couldn’t sink any lower than standing by while Vladimir Putin re-conquers the Warsaw Pact nations. Then you’ve underestimated Barack Obama’s incompetence.

Little Wars Waste Lives. Go Big Or Stay Home

War is too damn serious to fight in half-measures or for a president’s pride.

Here are just some of the wars we…

Am I Crazy If I Don’t Believe the President?

I don’t believe the US has irrefutable, indisputable proof that the Syrian government intentionally killed 1,500 people with sarin gas. I don’t believe it. Not yet. And neither does Yossef Bodansky. You’re probably thinking “this Bodansky guy’s some…
