  • Obama and David Brooks's Manhood Problem
    • The notion that everything can be solved - in foreign policy terms - by kicking your ass, or the threat of it, must end. If our recent history shows us anything, it is that we lace: a basic understanding of these societies; our legitimacy there has fallen ever since Reagan; relatedly, our unconditional support of Israel to the exclusion and detriment of an entire region has cost us; we lose every war we start there and in the process we ruin the people and the country; the law of unintended consequences always prevails; bringing the fight to them engenders no respect, fear, admiration or any other emotion we think we evoke. We should now try for even handed-ness, understand everyone's interest and how to find equitable solutions that are not based on zero sum. Last, we should stop listening to pundits! Invest in the diplomatic corp and send people overseas to better understand people and needs, and not always for the sake of democracy and capitalism - you have to want that and be prepared for it.

      Damn auto correct. Sentence should read "...by Americans, and we are okay about". How we have descended into madness

    • Dear Juan, I think Americans have decided to forego their right to privacy because of the fear government has imposed on us as a consequence of 9/11 and the subsequent War on Terror. Over 60 years of folly in Middle East foreign policy, culminating in the Afpak and Iraq wars (and now possibly Iran, we have decided that it is better to be spied upon by our own government than to be victim to a terrorist attack. Even though more people are killed by guns in America, by Americans, and we are okay airbrush to. How we have descended into madness.

  • Christian woman in Egypt Shoe-whacks Salafi Fundamentalist for Calling her a Harlot (Photo)
    • Honestly, as a Muslim, I think the woman was right. How can he assert a women is a harlot without any proof or evidence. It is character disparagement without any basis. How islamic is that? The man deserved the shoe. She is defending her honor the only way she can. Maybe the man will think twice before sullying her reputation publicly.
