  • Did the Egyptian Generals make their Coup because of a Conspiracy Theory?
    • It all makes sense if you think Obama is a Muslim Kenyan terrorist out to subvert civilization. Maybe the Egyptian generals have been in touch with Donald Trump? Or Orly Taitz? But if Qaradawi was on a sealed train?

  • Romney wants to Fight Whole Muslim World, not Concentrate on Bin Laden
    • Romney doesn't know what he believes. He's about to be shaken like an Etch-a-Sketch, but that will just be some different positions to get him elected. If he ever becomes president he has no track record in foreign or defense policy so who knows what he will do? I sure don't! Maybe Romney himself doesn't know.

  • Wagging the Dog with Iran's Maxwell Smart
    • Just because the plot was a stupid thing to do doesn't mean the Iranian government didn't do it. They've done plenty of stupid things before. Americans certainly have no monopoly on foreign policy blunders. Someone mentioned the Zimmerman telegram. That was a really stupid, laughably stupid, thing to do, too. But the German government actually sent it. I'll wait until the dust settles before I decide whether this plot was real or not. And the real history won't be written until the archives are declassified in both countries.

  • Obama on Libya vs. Trump, Palin, Bachmann, Romney, Gingrich and Carrot Top
    • Under the War Powers Act, Congress gave the president 60 days to go to war without asking them for a permission slip. If this goes on longer he'll have to ask them for authorization, but presidents going back to Thomas Jefferson have had military actions without permission. Whether it's Constitutional is a question for the Supreme Court. But it's legal.
