Mideast Peace Meeting a Dud

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Condoleezza Rice concluded a highly vaunted two-hour meeting with no firm commitment other than an agreement to maintain communication. The elephant in the room was Abbas’ recently announced deal to share power with Hamas, an arrangement that prompted the U.S. and Israel to threaten a boycott.

A Horrific Plan for Attacking Iran

U.S. Central Command has developed a plan for airstrikes against Iran that includes hitting not just nuclear facilities but most military targets throughout the country.

Bloody Sunday

A series of explosions around the world has killed more than 120 people. A train bombing in northern India left at least 64 people dead, while three car bombs in Baghdad—the bloodiest violence since a security crackdown began—killed more than 60 and injured at least 131. A bomb also exploded at a McDonald’s in St. Petersburg, Russia, in an act of “hooliganism,” according to police.

Hillary Refuses to Apologize for Iraq War Vote

Hillary Clinton is apparently so concerned with the specter of flip-flopping she will never apologize for her vote to authorize military action against Iraq. Speaking at a recent campaign event, the candidate herself said, “If the most important thing to any of you is choosing someone who did not cast that vote or has said his vote was a mistake, then there are others to choose from.” Indeed, there are.

U.S. and Israel Set Conditions for Palestinian Government

The U.S. and Israel have agreed not to recognize or support a new Palestinian unity government unless it first recognizes Israel.

GOP Sinks Iraq Debate in Senate

Republicans managed once again to block debate on the anti-escalation resolution that continues to stall in the Senate. Democrats had billed the Saturday vote as a referendum on the war and, as Majority Leader Harry Reid rightly pointed out, “A majority of the United States Senate just voted on Iraq, and a majority of the United States Senate is against the escalation in Iraq.”

Bush Afflicted by Non-Cancerous Moles

The president has had two benign growths removed from his temple, the latest of several sun-exposure moles he’s had to deal with. Perhaps if he spent less time clearing brush in Crawford, both Bush’s face and the nation would be in better working order.

New Mexico Tries Talking Urinals

New Mexico’s transportation department has installed 500 talking deodorizers in urinals around the state in an effort to curb drunk driving. The motion-activated device plays a recorded message that encourages the captive listener to phone a friend or a cab if he has “had one too many.”

Who Are You Calling a Gas Guzzler?

Although California has a reputation for smog-choked freeways and self-indulgent excess, the Golden State consumes less energy per capita than any other state in the union. What’s the secret? A combination of tough regulation and high prices.
