Saddam Hussein’s Revenge: The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL)

Saddam HusseinWhen will America’s half-witted elite running the Pentagon and the State Department see the light and acknowledge that perhaps the US lacks the qualifications, or resources, to run, or strongly influence, geopolitics throughout Planet Earth?  That might’ve been feasible for two-three decades following World War II, but the late 1970’s are long past and US’ dominance of the world’s economic output has shrunk, now just 18 percent vs. 28 percent in 1950 (re: Maddison Project).  And so has our military dominance.

Pre-Paris Betrayal People’s Climate Marches

We are badly running out of time to tackle climate change. It is now effectively too late to avoid a catastrophic plus 2 degrees C temperature rise but we are nevertheless obliged to do everything we can to make the future “less bad” for our children, grandchildren and future generations.

The Reign of Absurdity

There is no such thing as "international terrorism". To declare war on "international terrorism" is nonsense. Politicians who do so are either fools or cynics, and probably both.

So what is to be done?

Terrible terrorists are killing our soldiers in their countries and killing us here at home. How can we stop them?

Laquan the Palestinian

by Amer Zahr

He was brash. Reckless. Audacious. Walking right in front of police officers like he had nothing to fear. It was lunacy. His chest out, invincible. It was a defiance of the highest order. Utterly insane. How could he have cared about his own life, his own future, doing such things?

How Many Turkeys Died For Your Dinner

We’ve spent such a large portion of the past year cringing at the prospect of potential disasters crouching behind every bush: ISIS, Putin, Trump, Belicheck, lion- killing dentists, that a national holiday right about now is a blessed respite. For one 24- hour period, the whole country can focus on something benign. Unless, you’re a Black Friday shopper. But those are self-...
