I don't understand. How would aircraft carriers make a difference to a terrorist? If you know who and where the terrorists are, the police and the criminal justice system are the best way to deal with the problem. If you don't know who and where the terrorists are, I don't see how an aircraft carri...

The Cold War is over, it effectively ended during the second term of Ronald Reagan. Russia never, even during the days of Boris Yeltsin, became an all-out "ally" of the United States. The issue with the Strategic Defense Initiative has always been something that has caused friction between the US an...

*Sorry about the overly long title the first time around Bond is “an imperialist and he’s a misogynist. He kills people and laughs and sips martinis and wisecracks about it,” Damon, 36, told The Associated Press in an interview … Paul Greengrass, Damon’s director on Universal’s “Bourne Ultimatum” an...

Yes, Reagan talked with the Soviets; he eventually had several summit meetings with Mikhail Gorbachev. But: not right away. Not in his first year. In fact, throughout his entire first term, Reagan had no summit meetings, none, with either Leonid Brezhnev or, after he died, Yuri Andropov or, after h...

I think that George Lakoff wrote something somewhat similar in his book Moral Politics, I haven't read it though so don't take me as absolutely true on the matter. I think he wrote politics under the metaphor of views of the family, like nurturant parent and strict father. I think that the traits m...

All a matter of definitions. Look, the stage that Islam is in right now, roughly corresponds to Christianity around the time of the discovery of the western hemisphere. Frankly, such people as the followers of Bin Laden seem far more restrained than say, Pizarro. Not precisely (about Christianity a...

I was starting to like the catholic faith under the old pope. The catholic churches' standpoint on spiritual truth in all religions was very impressive to me. Nothing turns me more off a religions saying "Hey, if you don't believe in it exactly like we do, you're going to hell." Though I'm fine wit...

Thank you for breaking down and analysing my comments one by one. How do you feel about them ? Feel In a Conflict of Visions by Thomas Sowell (if I quote him often it is only because I find him especially enlightening) he attempts to determine why people so often wind up generally agreeing with eac...

Barack Obama is now backing off his foreign policy statement, or having foreign policy advisory say he meant something else. Charleston, S.C. — Sen.
