To attack or not to attack

Here are a few good articles about Iran. “Good” in the sense that they present the arguments for both sides of the attack vs. do not attack issue. The do not attack argument fails on at least 3 points: 1. Iran is not Iraq. Therefore, you can”t point to the failure in Iraq as evidence […]

By this time next year Iran will be a smouldering ruin

It”s a simple choice. Iran is a nuclear power or Iran is a smoldering ash heap. I don”t see how you get to any other alternative. The US will bomb Iran before Bush ends his term because it is too risky for him to leave it to the next President who may be Hilary Clinton. […]

An anti-Islamist Muslim Hits the Nail on the Head

In this op-ed piece the writer calls for an end of state-sponsored pro-jihadi brainwashing in the name of multiculturalism. Nothing too new there, expect that he identifies the sponsor states as Britain and Canada. Politicians who spout platitudes while funding fascists are as evil as the terrorists they enable. Boys are brainwashed by fables of […]

“I am” or “I will be”

I just read the preface and introduction of The Physics of Immortality, by Frank Tipler. This is going to be an interesting book. He points out that where the Bible quotes God as referring to himself as “I am that I am” it is really a mistranslation of the Hebrew which actually uses the future […]
