U.S. has contingency plans for nuclear war on the Korean peninsula

I must confess, I don't have a copy of those contingency plans, but I'm sure the government has them. The fact that the government has "contingency plans" for anything and everything is not newsworthy. Today's New York Times has an article entitled: "U.S. Has Contingency Plans for a Draft of Medical Workers." As I illustrated […]

"An End to Evil"

I recently finished David Frum and Richard Perle's "An End to Evil," and I agree with about 99 percent of what they write. The book is an excellent roadmap to dealing with the post-9/11 world, both at home and abroad. My one area of disagreement with the authors is their attitude toward China. Frum and […]

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright spoke to the Union-Tribune editorial board earlier this month, and a Q&A summary of the interview is available here. There should be no surprise, but the interview contains some whoppers. My favorite (and by that I mean alarming) has to do with North Korea. Is North Korea a threat? […]

Articles you should read today

First, on the domestic front, we have an article by Jim Geraghty over at National Review Online about Democrat presidential candidate Gen. Wesley Clark. The article is the best attempt I've seen to explain why Gen. Hugh Shelton slammed Clark over "honesty and integrity" issues. Interviews with a wide variety of current and retired military […]

Human rights in North Korea

There are none, and that's the point. Melanie Kirkpatrick has an excellent piece on South Korea's complicity in trying to keep the evil in the North quiet.

Evidence of Evil

The Wall Street Journal's Claudia Rosett has an excellent article previewing a report due out today from the U.S. Committee for Human Rights in North Korea. For those "sensitive" internationalists who suggest we only make Kim Jong Il meaner when we refer to his totalitarian regime as "evil," the report promises to be the equivalent […]

If you missed it

Last Thursday's Wall Street Journal had an excellent article on the situation in North Korea by a former rocket scientist for that Stalinist country. I come from a country whose rulers are indifferent to the mass starvation of their own people--one whose citizens are on average more than seven inches shorter than their Southern brothers […]

Bill Richardson & North Korea

Just caught a couple of minute of Greta Van Susteran's program while awaiting the beginning of the Ducks vs. Stars hockey game, and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson approved of the diplomatic path the Bush administration was now taking. In the past, according to Richardson, the labeling of North Korea part of the Axis of […]

In search of a little name-dropping

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman's latest anti-Bush screed can be found here. It should come as no surprise that in his latest piece, Krugman reveals to us that President Bush is arrogant, a compulsive liar and completely nuts. No surprise there really, but Krugman does dig up a bit of news that I wasn't […]

Kim Jong Il is evil

It's a simple statement, but it's something that many liberals think is at best unproductive and at worst unwise and counterproductive. While the truth may hurt Kim's feelings (cry me a river), it's important to speak the truth. It's important to the North Korean people who starve and suffer under a brutal regime. It's important […]
