The Roots of Anti-Americanism

April 13th, 2014 — 03:17 am
The United States is one of the last remaining land empires. That it is made the butt of opprobrium and odium is hardly surprising, or unprecedented. Empires - Rome, the British, the Ottomans - were always targeted by the disgruntled, the disenfranchised and the dispossessed and by their self-appointed delegates, the intelligentsia. Yet, even by historical standards, America seems to be provoking blanket repulsion. The Pew Research Center published last December a report titled "What the World ...

Just War

April 10th, 2014 — 12:17 am
In an age of terrorism, guerilla and total warfare the medieval doctrine of Just War needs to be re-defined. Moreover, issues of legitimacy, efficacy and morality should not be confused. Legitimacy is conferred by institutions. Not all morally justified wars are, therefore, automatically legitimate. Frequently the efficient execution of a battle plan involves immoral or even illegal acts. As international law evolves beyond the ancient percepts of sovereignty, it should incorporate new thinking ...

Nothing to Fear

April 6th, 2014 — 12:35 am
March 12, 2003 Nothing to Fear Terror is meant to change policy. Fear is meant to support policy. This is the Old World idea of balance. Guns change votes and that is why democracy is found nowhere. Nor would we want democracy if we had a choice, because we know the majority is more often wrong than right.

Stop a War

April 1st, 2014 — 12:32 am
Stop a War A nation at war with itself cannot stand. He speaks of American justice and points us to evil while he cuts deals with nuclear armed devils. A friend of al Qaeda, he is the Commander-In-Chief of the most powerful military force on planet earth and the man we call President. I know this is true because I heard it on TV.
