Do the United States of Obama even have a Foreign Policy?


Ideology prevails, rather than the national interests of the United States. Ideology has prevailed in Syria and likely will in Iran and elsewhere. It’s all a big clusterdunk. The following article from Stratfor provides a good summary of what President Obama’s … Continue reading

Syria, Iran, Islam, President Obama and the United States


It is almost impossible to make sense of the situation in Syria or President Obama’s responses to it. Lack of credibility and accountability.  It would be a trifle easier to make sense of the situation if President Obama were driven … Continue reading

President Obama’s Bluff on Syria has been Called


Red lines should not be drawn without anticipating their likely consequences or what will have to be done if they are crossed. President Obama seems not even to have considered either. Are we going to war in the Middle East? … Continue reading

Happy Independence Day! Independence from What and for Whom?


The United States of Obama are becoming a failed, divided third world nation. Colonel West refers to the Declaration of Independence as the Declaration of Vigilance. I agree. Dependence on “public servants” who seek their own independence from the law and from … Continue reading

North Korea Invaded South Korea Today in 1950

Red Lines, Syria and Incompetence

Are Democratically Elected Dictators Hostile to Freedom “Good” Dictators?
