I don’t know how else to describe this report from Military.com. The former military captain says it was in the early 1990s, that he watched his then commander wrestle with giving up his 12-year-old daughter who was mentally ill. The commander, he says, initially resisted, but after mounting pressure from his military superiors, he gave […]

Jaw-dropping idiocy

I’m not sure which is worse, that Matt Yglesias is so ignorant of how we treat terrorists at Gitmo, or that he is so ignorant of the nature of the North Korean regime. Needless to say, it’s easy to recognize this sort of barbarism as the torture that it is when you read about it […]

Carter, who negotiated the dismal failure known as the Agreed Framework with North Korea, suggests doing the very same thing again — because the original […]

Yesterday, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid and others decided that the blame for the fact that an evil, egotistical dictator had (apparently) detonated a nuclear bomb belonged to President George W. Bush — instead of the aforementioned evil, egotistical dictator. Today, Sen. John McCain fired back. “I would remind Senator (Hillary) Clinton and other Democrats critical […]

Bad news for China

Last week’s celebratory Independence Day rocket launches by the North Koreans are putting China in a pickle. China has one client state — North Korea — and over the past decade or so they’ve been willing to let Kim Jong Il throw periodic temper tantrums because the outbursts caused the U.S. more worry than it […]
