Iran’s Pat Robertson

Instead of wallowing in the fearful magical formulas of the past, Iran could educate its citizens more effectively, so that a new generation of engineers could design buildings that are more earthquake resistant. […]

Is US Government Behind Terrorism in Iran?

Violent attacks against nations we are unfriendly with, whether we are responsible for them or not, will only encourage those nations to become more hostile to us, as cynical politicians exploit the attacks to increase international divisions. […]

What's the Big Deal With Iran?

I don’t get it. Why is everyone making such a big deal about nuclear power in Iran. […]

North Korea And Iran Agree On Nuclear Weapons!

If we here in the USA are freaking out about the idea of North Korea or Iran having just a handful of nuclear weapons, then we cannot reasonably expect the world to be impressed with an agreement to reduce our nuclear arsenal to 1,500, plus a whole lot of spares in the atomic closet. […]

Are We All Hondurans Now?

The Republicans are not demanding that Barack Obama get tough on Roberto Micheletti, the leader who appears to have seized power, and no Twitterers here in the United States are changing the color of their profile icons in solidarity with anyone there. […]

Remember all those reports of warships being sent to the Persian Gulf to prepare for the coming Iran war? Remember the reports that secret operatives were already in Iran to set the stage for an invasion? […]

Music Video: All I Want (Is For McCain to Start to Make Some Sense)

Here’s a video version of the anti-McCain song I posted earlier today, fleshing out the idea of someone actually trying to diagram out John McCain’s stated positions and actions on the issues that matter to our country right now.

I’m a rank amateur at this, but by gum I’ll do my bit to find […]

Song: All I Ever Want (is for McCain to Make Some Sense)

I figure every election needs an anthem, and from what I’ve heard of the candidates’ own choices, well, we all should try our bit. Here’s my flawed contribution. Apologies to Elvis Costello: I mangled your tune, man, but it was for a good cause.

Here’s the audio, and if you don’t want to listen to […]
