An Historic Week

This week could well be seen by historians as the end of the United Nations as we have known it.
Much as the League of Nations fell apart in the thirties, the United Nations faces its own Ethiopian crisis.

Iraq and Terrorism Part 5
Multiple stories on a training base for terrorists.
The main link in the heading refers to the connections to 9/11/01 from The New York Sun.
Others include a Frontline peice on Iraq.
Buried in the site is an interview with a former captain in the Iraqi military.
Need more? Here’s a story from the New York Times, a couple of months after 9/11/01.
The links to terrorism are there, if you choose to look for them.

What Would Lincoln Do?

Profound look by Bill Bennett

Lincoln described liberty by a useful analogy: “The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep’s throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as a liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty.” Lincoln made it clear who the sheep was and who the wolf was. It is equally important to recognize who the liberator is. Those who march against the U.S. and the U.K. today, those who condemn Bush and Blair and remain silent when it comes to Hussein, are in league with the wolf’s view that the shepherds are destroying liberty. The people of Iraq will soon know what Afghanis know. The true wolf was devouring Afghanis, the true shepherd saved them.

The Jews Are At Fault

Here’s the quote and the apology:

If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq, we would not be doing this. The leaders of the Jewish community are influential enough that they could change the direction of where this is going, and I think they should.”

And here’s his apology: “I made some insensitive remarks that I deeply regret. I should not have singled out the Jewish community and regret giving any impression that its members are somehow responsible for the course of action being pursued by the Administration, or are somehow behind an impending war.”

Rep. Jim Moran (D-Virginia)

Ummm, then why say it at all, Rep. Moran?
