Now that they're safely dead, it can be aid: The 'geniuses' Marx, Lenin and Stalin were idiots

By Lev Navrozov We know very little about the beginnings of mankind. But we know a great deal about the life of mankind in the past three millennia from its writings, paintings (recall the Italy of the Renaissance), its printed sources, and about its recent history from its radio broadcasting and now from the Internet.

It's only words: With Asian tour, Obama tries to change the subject

It's only words: With Asian tour, Obama tries to change the subject

By Sol W. Sanders The Obama Administration is trying to turn a historical page. The president’s current Pacific tour is promoted as “a return to Asia”, an acknowledgment of its rapidly growing economies, and, of course, recognition of China as a world power.

Congratulations Libya, but please do not call this a revolution

Congratulations Libya, but please do not call this a revolution

By Sumantra Maitra Moammar Gadhafi is dead. Every dictator meets his destiny eventually. And the end is usually bloody. However, make no mistake: This was NOT a revolution. Call it a regime change, call it a bloody barbaric revenge on one tribal warlord, by the other tribe with foreign help, but don’t call it a […]

Fierce rhetoric and a growing strategic disconnect from the West reveal all is not well with newly Islamist Turkey

Fierce rhetoric and a growing strategic disconnect from the West reveal all is not well with newly Islamist Turkey

Global Information System correspondents The Turkish Government of Prime Minister Reçep Tayyip Erdogan has demonstrated that it becomes more politically and verbally aggressive — to the point where it generates incredulity among non-Turkish analysts — when it faces, or prepares to face, major challenges. It also tends to state arguments which reflect the opposite of reality on these […]

With friends like Nicholas D. Kristof of the N.Y. Times, Israel doesn't need enemies

With friends like Nicholas D. Kristof of the N.Y. Times, Israel doesn't need enemies

By Ed Koch  I read the op-ed of Nicholas D. Kristof in The New York Times of Oct. 6th with its headline caption, “Is Israel Its Own Worst Enemy?”  I concluded on finishing that article that it is Nicholas Kristof who is truly an enemy of Israel. As is fashionable nowadays, Kristof blames Israel for […]

Hello? Is anyone noticing that the world's leaders are behaving irrationally?

Hello? Is anyone noticing that the world's leaders are behaving irrationally?

By Sol W. Sanders Could more conspiratorial environmentalistas’ interpretations of our times be correct, that is, someone has been putting something in the water and we are all being lobotomized, even without major brain surgery? You could make the case this week. Much of the world’s leadership, even though presumably suckling their bottled water, exhibits […]

Ousted from his sandbox, a petrodollar-funded playboy terrorist is at large in the Sahara

By John J. Metzler UNITED NATIONS — Two years ago the North African state of Libya was celebrating the 40th anniversary of the military coup which brought Col. Muammar Gadhafi to power and subsequently established the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya.  Lavish festivals and garish spectacles, fueled by petrodollars and regime hubris were held throughout […]
