    Earthquake in Japan: Dependable Aid from America

    There is no dependable way to foretell the next natural calamity that will befall planet Earth. Actually, the only thing mankind can say about the next planet-shaking catastrophe is that after whatever horrendous event has ended, America will have aid en route. Yes, many countries give assistance to afflicted areas of the world; however, the unchallenged leader of emergency aid is always America. The United | Read More »

    President to Speak About Japan Today!

    Hooray! We are Saved! Japan is Saved! Can we expect to hear the infamous words: “I will not sleep until this problem <insert problem here> is solved!” OR “I will not rest until this <insert problem here> is put to rest!” I just cannot wait to hear his undying, “LASAR BEAM” fucus is put to Japan’s problem.

    Obama – Another Test of Leadership

    As I had stated in an earlier post, Obama faced a test of his leadership when dealing with Iran and North Korea. Despite all of his bluster, both of those countries have continued down the same path toward nuclear capabilities despite Obama’s inexperienced and amateurish tactics. One would always hope that the leader of your country would learn from past mistakes. The question becomes: Has | Read More »

    The Real Tragedy Of Japan And What We Should Take From It.

    The Japanese people have become as fierce an ally and friend as they were an enemy. As a young Marine I studied the campaigns of the Pacific War, where American Marines and Japanese Imperial soldiers threw themselves at each other in some of the most savage battles in the history of armed conflict. I saw a couple of those islands, actually walked some of the | Read More »

    White House: We don’t know nothing about nothing.

    This exchange between Jake Tapper, ABC Senior White House Correspondent, and Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary is, bluntly, bizarre. For context: Jake is asking Carney about, naturally enough, the situation with the nuclear reactor problem in Japan.  Specifically, the most recent details about the nuclear reactor problem, given that both the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the Japanese government are both keeping mum on | Read More »

    Why aren’t we hearing or seeing any aid for Japan?

    I know they are a first world country, but since the 1950’s Japan has been a country that has been four-square behind American foreign policy efforts.  It is a democratic country, and perhaps our staunchest in the region, aside from Australia.  Yet, I hear of nothing that we are doing.  We are standing by.  When the tsunami hit Indonesia, we had former presidents leading a | Read More »

    Pray For The Japanese As The Abyss Looms Before Them

    It was Sunday, just after the earthquake had leveled much of Northern Japan. I was scanning my hotmail account with more than the usual curiosity. A close personal friend of mine (a former girlfriend to be more honest) still lives in Tokyo, and I had written to see if she were OK. Things turned out as well for her as could possibly be hoped. She, | Read More »

    Let’s Not Lose Faith in Nuclear Energy

    A nuclear catastrophe is potentially unfolding in Japan after the country’s eastern seaboard was devastated by its biggest earthquake on record. A tsunami with waves of up to thirty feet high swept away entire villages and damaged major industries, including oil refineries and at least two nuclear power plants. Two explosions occurred at a nuclear facility in Fukushima Prefecture over the weekend. At least one | Read More »
