Re: US Foreign Policy

I think that Trump is right to allow Turkey to enter the fight on behalf of the Sun Arabs (and for its own...). The balance was destroyed with the removal of Saddam Husain of Iraq - a first class blunder of the US making. That allowed the Shia Arabs to take over and try to dominate the ME. Taking do...

Re: Bashar al-Assad's Syria

No the haven't and are kicked out from Syria by the Russians, facing serious baclsh in Iraq, facing unrest in Lebanon and of course kicked out of their outposts near Israel. Now Turkey is entering the fry and revitalizing ISIS. No the Iran...

Re: Bashar al-Assad's Syria

Actually more like mercenaries for benefit Erdugan being their longstanding enemy it makes sense to join forces with Bashar. They worked for the US before but Trump is not interested anymore. In fact by genius or chance he has found the only formula that has and can bring about stability (but not p...

Re: Israel

This is several weeks old - sorry, but I just came across it . . . "Noblesse Oblige" http://anthropoetics.ucla.edu/views/vw630/ ". . . increasingly, Jewish history, and even the historical destiny of nationalism, is being made in Israel itself." Thanks Jim. Interesting point of view but a hard read...

Re: Caroline Glick

Had you bothered to read Glick's article, you would have discovered that the "Jewish controlled" news media are generally supportive of left-wing interests , which as she points out are in opposition to Republican (including POTUS) support for Israel. I read it Jim. Despite being allegedly supporti...

Re: Caroline Glick

Dagbay, I doubly curse the memory of Adolf Hitler. Not only because the bastard sent over 6 million Jews to their death but because by so doing he made the emergence of a Jewish state inevitable. I draw your attention to Resolution 181: passed by the United Nations General Assembly in November 1947...

Re: Whack-a-baby

State mandated infanticide and abortion is the law of the land in Iceland for babies suspected to be abnormal (someone needs to define the exact criteria here but the government thrust is to eliminate disorders such as otism).

Re: John Vervaeke's lecture series

Glad to do it. Vervaeke introduces an entirely new lexicon and dialectical approach to a dialogue that's become moribund and largely irrelevant. I'm stuck on his position on 'physicalism', which seems to me a conditional dualism - the self is integrated with the body and needs the body to manifest ...
