I didn't think Russia would invade & annex Crimea - it had so many levers with which to squeeze Ukraine that I doubted it would feel impelled to go that far - so I'm not making any predictions about what's coming next. But I can envision many scenarios by which this crisis would escalate. But wi...

It looks like American justice isn't going to have the final word. []Indian diplomat indicted, expected to leave US[/url] In summary, the U.S. asked India to waive diplomatic immunity; India refused; U.S. attor...

Maybe they could do a better job of defending the ban in court than the state government has done so far. It sounds like the state's arguments have been less than convincing to date. That's the thread that runs through all these cases: none of the arguments in defense of banning same-sex marriage a...

It all comes down to the matter of immunity. If she has diplomatic immunity, then the treatment that she received was outrageous, & the U.S. must drop all charges & issue an apology forthwith. (So far, Sec. of State Kerry hasn't gone so far, only expressing "regret" to Indian officials.) Whe...

I knew when I saw the header that it had to be the U.S. Alabama, Idaho, Arkansas, California, New Jersey, North Carolina . . . doesn't matter. It's the country we live in. There is long-established paranoia about crime & about young people that have led to a heavy - & heavily armed - police ...

Well it looks like the case will go to trial, now that Kaitlyn Hunt has refused the plea deal. Kaitlyn Hunt will not take plea deal This isn't going to end well for her. At trial, all her defense team will be able to do is pound their fists on the table & cry "outrage". And this whole thing IS o...

Personally I can't see anything particularly inappropriate about the girls' relationship. Teenagers are sexual; they form & dissolve relationships & engage in sexual acts. But as perplexing as it must be to observers in other countries, prosecutions of this type in the U.S. are actually fair...

Sanford will be a fine congressman, not sure why his personal mistakes are held against him yet at the same time you have partisan hacks from both sides supporting creeps like Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, Anthony Weiner etc. Personal lives should stay personal. It wasn't just about Sanford's person...

I can't even see the argument for private prisons in the name of small government being made. As the private prison is still funded by taxpayer money, but the taxpayers would presumably have less ability to influence the activities of a private prison than they would a public one, if anything it is...

Chavez had several journalists illegally executed, Please provide details. I know that Hugo Chavez was no great respecter of press freedom, but Venezuela doesn't have the death penalty. Whatever people consider to be his faults, Chavez has never ordered anyone to be executed (judicially or extrajud...

Now, I'm absolutely positive that Mr. Sanford is no hypocrite, and is eagerly awaiting his wedding night to examine and enjoy Miss Chapur's vagina. He's already done that - no need to wait until after the wedding. The Luv Gov may well win back his old seat. He has in his favor the highest name-ID i...

what is the matter with tennessee? Simple - it's a culturally conservative state with a large bloc of fundamentalist Christians that is currently trending even further to the right. As any political consultant could tell you: a little homo-bashing never hurts a politician in the South. It's a tradi...

This all reminds me of 2006, after some polls results were published that showed that perceptions of the U.S. had become extremely negative in many Middle East countries. The reaction stateside: "we just need to explain ourselves better". W. even appointed Karen Hughes as a sort of ambassador-at-lar...

I could state here that I hate all of the damn Democrats in the world, but I'm not going to stoop down to that level. I am a Republican, and frankly, I do have compassion. I'm just not about to compromise my own principles by condoning a lifestyle that I believe to be wrong. It's funny how people w...

Apparently, the paranoid style is still the defining characteristic of the American right. That a story like this, implausible as it seems, would gain such traction would come as no surprise to anyone who understands the mentality of the populist conservative movement. There is simply no reasoning w...
