Sept 11th: One Month Until The Anniversary

Next month it will be the second anniversary of the worst day in American history. How goes the war? To our government's credit there has not been a repeat terrorist attack in the US. The Taliban government was overthrown. Saddam Hussein is no longer a potentially...

The East Coast Blackout

The East Coast blackout seemed to be straight out Atlas Shrugged: 60 million people without electricity and the official reaction was that things worked like they were supposed to! I just had to verify that the New York Times editorial on the subject was a call for...

“War’s New Face” Revisited

Daniel Pipes' recent column identifies changes to the way the West (namely, the USA and Israel) conduct war. He seems to report this factually and there is no explicit opinion on the matter, but the implication is that he doesn't have a problem with it--and may even...

The Pro-War Left is Still the Left

FrontPage mag published leftist Nat Hentoff's piece explaining what he did not march to protest the Iraqi war. In his article he quotes himself from a newspaper interview: "There was the disclosure . . . when the prisons were briefly opened of the gouging of eyes of...

The Reactionary Left

We are in the midst of a radical change in world geopolitics. The twentieth century saw two major geopolitical shuffles that resulted from the world wars. The second world war's effect remained intact through 1989 when the Soviet Union collapsed and since then there...

Bravo for Not Sanctioning a Sham

Reader Ben Rathbone pointed me to this letter that he wrote, and I applaud the position taken. Here's the background: [On February 22, 2003, the] 24-hour Arabic cable news network, Al-Jazeera, will be broadcasting a two hour "open dialogue" from the Harris Theater at...

Questions About the War, Militant Islam, and Self-Defense

A reader asked the following questions, and since they're asked politely and with seeming sincerity, I'll answer them. Question 1: What is a 'militant Muslim', how do you suppose you round them up and how exactly do you get rid of them? More to the point, what creates...

God Bless Our Assassins, Commandos and Bombs

In the past few weeks radical Muslims have attacked again, including a bombing of a French ship, a bombing that killed hundreds--mostly Australians--in Indonesia, bombings in the Philippines, and possibly a bombing of a Moscow McDonald's restaurant. The director of...

Why the Palestinians Do Not Deserve An Independent State

Empathy for the Palestinian people for being in an "occupied" territory and without their own sovereign government is horribly misguided. This is a people, aside from a few voiceless individuals, who chose as their leader an oppressive dictator who not only supports...

Ken Iverson: Proof that Ayn Rand’s Heroes Exist

Many Objectivists read the book American Steel about Ken Iverson's amazing corporate leadership in developing new technology for steel producers when Big Steel was floundering under old ideas and crippling unions. Dr. Edwin Locke also made many mentions of him, as...

A Necessary Response to the Attacks of Sept 11th

The worst mistake that the United States could now commit is an insufficient retaliation against the Islamic terrorist world. This is a real concern because Americans have a sorry history of failing to commit to the destruction of our enemies. Indeed thousands of...

Orrin Hatch reveals how antitrust laws are tools for power lusters

In a recent speech to businessmen at a technology industry conference, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), a long-time proponent of breaking up Microsoft, stated that he supported "strict enforcement of antitrust laws" because they are "essential to the health of the economy...
