Hillary Pushes the Button

What in the world was Sen. Hillary Clinton thinking when she attacked Sen. Barack Obama for ruling out the use of nuclear weapons in going after Osama bin Laden?

The Terror America Wrought

During a week of mayhem in Iraq, in which terrorists have rightly been condemned for targeting schoolchildren, it is sobering to recall that this week is also the 62nd anniversary of a U.S. attack that deliberately took the lives of thousands of children on their way to school in the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

King George W.:  James Madison’s Nightmare

In 1795, James Madison wrote of war’s far-reaching and corrosive effect on public liberty.  He could well have been warning us about our own King George, just the sort of imperial president that Madison and other founders of our nation feared most.

Bush’s Pakistan Paradox

The marker of what will go down in history as “Bush’s folly” is that this idiot of a president invaded a country that had absolutely nothing to do with terrorist attacks on the United States or WMD threats to America while coddling the military junta in Pakistan, which was guilty on both counts.
