Obama and Iraq: "Through a Glass, Darkly' While the United States military can claim that it did not lose the war in Iraq, it will have a hard time backing up any claims of victory. While American forces may have defeated Saddam Hussein's divisions, and ultimately captured or killed the Iraqi president and the majority of his senior officials, the fighting would last for years and continues today.

Here We WMD Again: Iraq and the Mythical Pakistani Package The two documents that The Washington Post describes as being "newly uncovered" are in fact derived from an old file containing nearly 1,000 pages detailing a relationship between the Iraqi intelligence service, or Mukhabarat, and the Iraqi nuclear weapons program, or PC-3.

Our Murderers in the Sky The true test of a society and its leaders is the extent to which every effort is made to both properly define a problem as one worthy of military intervention and then exhaust every option other than the use of force.

McChrystal Doesn't Get It—Does Obama? Clearly Gen. Stanley McChrystal is not the man for this task. He should be replaced by someone within the ranks of the U.S. military who shares Obama's vision of peace, and with it the need to redefine the mission in South Asia.

So This Is What Victory Looks Like? The celebration transpired inside a city that has been radically transformed over the past six years. Even with American combat forces ostensibly withdrawn, Baghdad remains one of the most militarized urban areas in the world. It wasn't always so. When I was in Baghdad during the 1990s, I was struck by the lack of an overt military presence for a nation purported to be governed by one of the world's worst militaristic....

Learning to Live With the Devil We Know The world needs to collectively move past the controversy of the Iranian elections and accept the reality that, like him or not, President Ahmadinejad will be the "democratically elected" face of Iran for the next four years. Iran will gradually return to normal, and the political protests so earnestly covered by the West will take on the character of a tempest in a teapot.

Barack Obama, Meet Team B If the members of the Obama administration would bother to take a stroll down memory lane, they might recall that once upon a time there was a document called the anti-ballistic missile treaty, signed in 1972 between the United States and the former Soviet Union, which recognized that anti-missile defense shields were inherently destabilizing, and as such should not be deployed.

On the Eve of Destruction Don't worry, the White House is telling us. The world's most powerful leader was simply making a rhetorical point. At a White House press conference last week, just in case you haven't heard, President Bush informed the American people that he had told world leaders "if you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing [Iran] from having the knowledge necessary....

The Big Lie: "˜Iran Is a Threat' The fact of the matter is that the "Iranian Threat" is derived solely from the rhetoric of those who appear to seek confrontation between the United States and Iran, and largely divorced from fact-based reality.

See Hillary Run (from Her Husband's Past on Iraq) Hillary Clinton is about as slippery a species of politician that exists, one who has demonstrated an ability to morph facts into a nebulous blob which blurs the record and distorts the truth. ...nowhere is it so blatant as when dealing with the issue of the ongoing war in Iraq and Hillary Clinton's vote in favor of this war.
