Shades of Churchill’s ‘Iron Curtain Speech’

(My American Thinker post) It was a remarkable speech. PM Netanyahu spoke clearly, forcefully, and eloquently about the nuclear deal. This is one of those "must-watch speeches" that comes along once a generation. It reminded us of another statesman who came to the U.S. many years ago. It was on March 5, 1946 that the then former PM […]

Second, the government arrests someone to distract the population. In Cuba, it was the attacks on "El Diario […]

Argentina, the Dysfunctional Nation

(My new American Thinker post) Twenty years ago, a horrible terrorist act killed 87 and injured over 100 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  It was the worst terrorist in this hemisphere before 9-11. It targeted Jews at a major Jewish Center. Sadly, we are still waiting for a formal explanation of what happened. How does the murder of 87 people remained […]

1994 and a few lessons from lifting the Vietnam trade embargo

It will take a lot more than marches

(My new American Thinker post) France can take advantage of this tragedy and turn the tide. Or, the French can march, hug each other and confirm to the terrorists that the West is not serious about fighting them.
