Brave New World Indeed.
Not one that Huxley would have envisioned… but plenty close enough for most of us, thank you very much! Trying to quantify the challenges facing this nation is a daunting task in itself. Especially with a country still largely in the grip of the greatest recessionary period since the great depression. A populace still raw from the economic collapse of 2007-2008. I know I’m not | Read More »
Israel Braces Itself In Face Of Imminent Threat Of Hostilities.
The chatter among the bad guys, Syria, Hizballah in Lebanon, Hamas and the Palestinians and the Islamic Jihad, is all about the high state of preparedness for war. Maj. Gen. Yoav Galant and Ehud Barak Israel moved quickly to solve command issues, with Ehud Barak’s nomination of OC Southern Command Major General Yoav Galant to serve as the country’s Chief of Staff in February, when | Read More »
How Much Time?
I love enigmatic titles. This is one that is sort of sober in the sense that I’m attempting to discern how soon the business in the Middle East is going to erupt into something really nasty. The build-up of opposing forces is reaching fever pitch with multiple missile systems, both offensive and defensive, on both sides. Fajr-5, supplied to Hamas by Iran. Israel has developed | Read More »
Iran – While We Were Asleep….
With all the Obama-Congressional dog and pony side shows to dazzle the rubes losing their luster, and the country coming to the stark realization that President Obama’s ‘transformational’ leadership is actually the gateway to durance vile for all Americans, have we taken our eyes and attention from what is actually happening in Iran? With our attention riveted to the battle in Washington over the detested | Read More »
Clock Ticks – Israel Faces Off With Enemies.
Before I get into the cauldron simmering in the Middle East, I want to revisit the ‘health care summit’ and an article written by Joe Klein of TIME/CNN. If there is a better example of why the ‘lamestream’ press are becoming extinct in this country I haven’t seen one. Mr Klein was apparently elsewhere during the hearing and depended on ‘tea leaves’ for his reporting. | Read More »
Obama – Tough… On What?
We used to have a saying around the playground as wise-guy adolescents. “He’s tough ok, around the mouth”. This was generally used to describe a guy who was all talk, who would back off and cower to any half-baked bully who happened to come along. Striking simile to the Benighted One and his Clown College where it comes to the very first tenant of a | Read More »
Iran’s Fool’s Gambit Will Be Their Undoing.
It’s as though Iran was on its own march of the lemmings. History has seen and recorded stories like this one before. Iran should have taken note when their arch nemesis, Saddam Hussein, was taken out in a matter of weeks by a first-world military. For all Iran’s bluff and bluster, it should be remembered that Iran’s war with Iraq endured for eight years with | Read More »
Israel’s Clock Is Ticking…So Is The Mullahs’…The Buck Stops Right There.
If the United States had the sense that G-d gave a goose, we’d not only just stay out of Israel’s way when the fateful day comes, which it surely will when hundreds of Israeli F-15’s take to the sky on a do or die mission to end Iran’s nuclear weapons aspirations once and for all, we’d saddle up and join em’. This mission is every | Read More »
