I mentioned once before, that I don't drink the Kool-Aid.
That doesn't mean that I don't pay attention to the ingredients:
The United States needs to be an honest broker in regards to affairs in the Middle East.
We are failing in that regard.
When one creates a vacuum, that vacuum does not persist - it is filled.
Isn't it interesting that most of the quaint sayings you and I have shared throughout the years all seem to have been turned on their heads?
For example, "Sticks and stones" should be a familiar refrain; yet there are those whose livelihoods have been taken from them for the simple utterance of contrary information. Take this letter to the Editor, Andrew Rosenthal, of the New York Times:
Before we get to the article in question, I'd like to throw a link your way: 911, Iraq, PNAC , All roads lead to Israel.
I do hope that we can have a constructive dialogue - pointing out facts should be received as exactly that.
Remember my statement to you all about my lack of foreign entanglements?
Apparently, there are 81 "representatives" of the United States who do NOT share this view:

Someone just brought this to my attention - I found this to be outrageous and incredible:
We were introduced to the Stuxnet computer worm as early as last year, when it was announced that it had been introduced into the Iranian computer infrastructure responsible for the maintenance of their nuclear facilities.
Is it possible that the worm passed onto any other nuclear facilities' computers? This article examines that train of thought.
Surely it would be easier for President Obama to bolt if he had political cover. And who better to give it than those representing Turtle Bay in Washington? Back in 2001, New York's senators were outspoken. Sen. Chuck Schumer praised President Bush's Durban boycott, saying: "He's absolutely right . . . I am just furious with the UN." Then-Sen. Hillary Clinton called the UN's actions "criminal."
---NEW YORK POST, "America's Durban Disgrace, February 25, 2009
New York Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand must both tell President Barack Obama that the UN's new "Durban II" anti-Israel hatefest must be boycotted. The time to act is now. The method is to be public and vocal about it, in no uncertain terms.
It is clear that "Durban II" will be even worse than "Durban I." Libya, Iran and Cuba all have prominent positions in this new "human rights" conference. Participation by the United States will indicate that it accepts a hateful agenda.
Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, please do the right thing. Now!
