...to hear that Mrs. Palin, has a higher calling, she could not handle Alaska's problems, her personal problems, or her family problems, she spoke like a baffoon in her vice presidential run, which she thankfully lost to an amazingly brilliant man. Yea, like I see Sarah P. making choices about Iran, Gaza, China, coups, Pirates, health care, the economy.... Miss Palin, who cleans your house, watches your kids, balances your checkbook, does the grocery shoppin, teaches your children geography, readin n writin, music appreciation, killin animals for fun and sport, bein all cute fer boys...

...It is truly amazing how he can wake up day after day and contend with goings on which include the never ending MP saga, the current British held hostage crisis which has led to loss of life due to failure of Britain making adequate negotiations and Britain’s accused intervention in the Iran elections’ results. Perhaps in the best words of resigned MP Tom Watson; “…However spitefully your character is traduced and your triumphs degraded by Labour’s enemies, they can never erase these towering achievements to your name.” Few leaders could transcend the...

...There are probably many other rights that are denied but it is probably a state secret. I am guessing if we want to know what it is like to experience a trial of this sort we can ask Roxana Saberi (the recently released American journalist who had been tried and convicted in a closed trial in Iran) after she is finished resting in Vienna.
Human rights organizations and liberal minded people the world over are no doubt gravely disappointed by Obama’s reversal and apparent validation of Bush Administration policy. However, pragmatic minded people the world over are no doubt... (more)

Nashville, TN. / Teheran, Iran. May 8, 2009. Roxana Saberi is an Iranian-Japanese descendant, a female freelance journalist, and an U.S. citizen and Iranian citizen, who often covers according to different sources and Christian Newswire the conditions and plight of women in Iran. She was arrested in February 2009, and is currently being held in the notorious Evin prison close to the city of Teheran in Iran.
The charges brought up against Roxana have been in the first step that she has been accused that she might have bought... (more)
Obama has been tested. It was a strong test. It was not as severe as 9/11 was to George W. Bush, but it seems, at least on the surface that Obama has passed – using military force to settle a situation. Political commentators had begun to liken this to the Iran Hostage situation of 1979 that tested President Jimmy Carter and eventually showed him to be an abject failure in the White House.
Analysis of this situation is sure to change as more information about the fire fight and how Captain Phillips was rescued come to light. For now,... (more)
...convincingly President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatened boast.
And while this President frets and worries about what others think and how to “protect and defend” us, the Israeli Government I suspect has already put together a contingency plan to eliminate whatever threat Iran may pose, irregardless of what we or anyone else may think.
The fundamental difference between Israel and us is that “they” understand all to well the threat, and what appeasement ultimately brings.
I sincerely hope that my instincts are wrong, and that this... (more)
...button” Vice President Biden was referring to came days later in a letter from President Obama, to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that referenced our missile defense program, and Obama’s willingness to scrap the program if Russia would somehow intervene and perhaps discourage Iran from continuing on their quest to acquire nuclear weapons.
To suggest that this president is simply naive is a monumental mistake. In truth its youthful arrogance combined with a disregard of historical reference, that I fear will eventually be the undoing of this administration, and... (more)
...not on either side, the Georgians or the Russians, because I believe if we take a side, we are royally screwed either way.
The Russians are one of the most powerful countries in the world, and if we are to jeopardize our relationship with them right before a possible attack on Iran, I do not doubt that we will create a Third World War.
As I continue to watch the events, and the Olympics, I do feel proud that we have not made any rash decisions. While the Georgians may have helped us in Iraq, there should be no reason why we must put ourselves on the line for... (more)
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, a former member of the student group who seized 54 American Hostages in 1978 and held them for 444 days, has made it known that he believes that the United States and other so-called “big powers” of the world are responsible for nuclear proliferation and AIDS. Ahmadinejad also claims that the “big powers” are using the United Nations for their own benefit and causing strife among smaller nations.
If only that were true.
The United States has about as much influence over the United Nations as a roll of toilet paper has at stopping an 18-wheeler.... (more)
