When you surround an army, leave an outlet free.  Do not press a desperate foe too hard. -Sun Tzu Those barriers are designed to prevent a repeat of the massacre that occurred this week at a Christmas market in Berlin. Thankfully, the perpetrator behind that particular atrocity has been put down by a brave...

Attack On Abidjan

Attack On Abidjan

  The latest assault by practitioners of the Religion of Peace against the civilized world occurred yesterday on a beach resort in the Ivory Coast, approximately 25 miles from the capital Abidjan. Like the Burkina Faso siege by Al-Mourabitoun and the Sousse attack of last year, the vast majority of victims bore no relation to military...

Islam’s Day Of Rage

Islam’s Day Of Rage

It seems like the world’s most peaceful religion just can’t keep itself out of the headlines these days. On the heels of repeated attempts to assassinate artists and writers, the foot soldiers of Allah meticulously murdered over 60 infidels yesterday in a spate of terror that stretched from Kuwait to France.

The Grapes of Wrath

In spite of stumbling into a resolution which should prevent an immediate war with Syria-the Mid-east  satellite of a nation with over three thousand nuclear warheads and numerous land and sea-based delivery systems-this administration continues to persist in its  ahistorical, staggeringly reckless foreign policy.  After supporting the Muslim Brotherhood  in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and...

It was one of the demands invoked repeatedly throughout the pro-democracy demonstrations which took place last week at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. These protests were held against...

The U.S. Abandons An Ally

The U.S. Abandons An Ally

I wasn’t planning on discussing this issue today, but we do address important foreign policy issues on this site when the occasion demands it. Needless to say, President Obama’s insistence that the state of Israel, which has heretofore been our most trusted and reliable ally in the Middle East, return to annihilatory borders  is such an occasion.

Terror Time Bomb

Terror Time Bomb

A very disturbing article was published in the Houston Chronicle yesterday revealing the sharp increase in apprehensions of illegal border-crossers from terrorist-designated nations over the past 17 months. Although the tone of the article would lead you to believe that Islamic terrorists aren’t attempting to exploit our porous southern border, nothing could be further...

Thoughts On CPAC

Thoughts On CPAC

WEEKEND IN WASHINGTON ~                       Sacking out at CPAC   Had a great! time in Washington–the guys were interesting; it was strange but not too terrible to share a room with them, as all the hotels were sold out and overbooked, and Georgia was great, aside from her...

Tunisia Meltdown

Tunisia Meltdown

In the wake of the president fleeing his country, escaping the widespread ‘student’ riots, Tunisia is not what it, until very recently, seemed. Who knew the Tunisians were so repressed?  Wherever one goes in the country, those Ben Ali banners are everywhere.
