  • United States should stay out of Iran’s nuclear business

    Obama’s presidency has been a busy one for American interventionism. His administration has overseen a costly troop surge in Afghanistan, a disastrous police action in Libya, and an unprecedented campaign of drone warfare across Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. With the largest military budget since World War II, the president has kept US forces stationed in …

  • Rand Paul’s Israel Comments Should Not Be Trivialized

    Rand Paul, fresh from his trip to Israel with many ardent Israel supporters, said, “I think we should do is announce to the world, and I think it is well-known, that any attack on Israel will be treated as an attack on the United States.” Jack Hunter called Rand’s statement a “gesture,” “a little rhetorical …

  • $3 billion.

    My friends, you don’t have to — you don’t need to do nation- building in Israel. We’re already built. You don’t need to export democracy to Israel. We’ve already got it. And you don’t need to send American troops to Israel. We defend ourselves. These are words from Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in May …

  • Syria: A Roadblock to an Iran War

    The U.S. suggests a “coalition of the willing” to intervene in Syria: The United States proposed an international coalition to support Syria’s opposition Sunday after Russia and China blocked a U.N. attempt to end nearly 11 months of bloodshed, raising fears that violence will escalate. Rebel soldiers said force was now the only way to …

  • Is Ron Paul “Anti-Semitic”?

    Slander is standard in politics in politics, but ultra-loony blogger Pamela Geller goes too far this time. I’m quite sure most of you have heard of Gellar, who is best known for  actively bashing and demonizing those dirty Mooslims. I can’t blame her, though — everybody has to make some sort of a living. Anyways, …

  • Benjamin Netanyahu: Democracy’s Biggest Fan?

    Cross posted at Interest of the State. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu once gave a speech entitled “Fighting Terrorism” at Ashland University. Little did “Bibi” know how relevant his words would be today. His speech was based off of Immanuel Kant‘s essay Perpetual Peace. Right off the bat, Netanyahu said: He [Kant] said peace with …

  • The Gaza Youth’s “Manifesto for Change.”

    We are sick of being caught in this political struggle; sick of coal dark nights with airplanes circling above our homes; sick of innocent farmers getting shot in the buffer zone because they are taking care of their lands; sick of bearded guys walking around with their guns abusing their power, beating up or incarcerating …

  • More Peace and Harmony Brought to You By Our Tax Dollars

    This video is more proof of why we need to completely stop funding foreign governments and their criminal acts with our tax dollars. Countless incidents like this occur everyday within the occupied territories and too often they are not reported by the lame-stream media. I don’t care how “conservative” or “liberatrian” you are. If you …

  • End the Gaza Blockade…for Israel’s Sake?

    That’s the argument Ivan Eland of the Independent Institute makes in a new article: As the United States should do with its ridiculously counterproductive embargo against Fidel Castro’s Cuba—which has used the U.S. sanctions as an external threat to win internal support and blame all of the island’s economic problems on the United States—Israel should …
