  • Will the Next 9/11 Arrive Via Drone?

    Aggressive drone wars set a dangerous precedent
      You know the pattern. We escalate the arms race with some new gadget to kill and maim more efficiently, then we deploy brute economic and military force to keep those new weapons to ourselves for as long as possible.
  • Charities Are For Suckers

    Leave Katrina relief efforts to government
      Hurricane Katrina has prompted Americans to donate more than $700 million to charity, reports the Chronicle of Philanthropy. So many suckers, so little foresight.

  • It's the skepticism, stupid

    How the media can restore credibility
      Judith Miller, the mousy Bush administration propaganda mouthpiece forced to retire from The New York Times last week, is hardly an anomaly. American journalism is contaminated by widespread institutional corruption.

  • Obama Doesn't Get It

    He doesn't care about the economy
      Every now and then, however, a pol behaves so irrationally that I have to ask: What the hell is this guy thinking?
  • Brave New Book

    Political scientist argues this is a police state
      A hundred pages in, you'll either be stuffing rags into Molotov cocktails or slitting your wrists.
  • The Memory Hole

    Haiti news coverage turns sublimely ridiculous
      American news producers and editors have long been masters of the Memory Hole, purposefully omitting the most relevant information in stories that would otherwise make the current regime look bad.

  • America's Terrorist Ally

    Uzbekistan's dictator makes Saddam look good
      Who is more brutal, Saddam Hussein or Islam Karimov? Reasonable victims disagree. Saddam's goons electrocuted his political dissidents. Karimov, on the other hand, loots so much of his country's oil wealth that his state torturers don't have an electrical grid to draw upon. So his police torturers are forced to resort to medieval methods. They boil their "terrorist extremists"-businessmen who refuse to pay bribes-to death.

  • KILL 'EM ALL, LET GOD SORT US OUT

    Landmines and WMDs are verboten. Ban bombs, too.
      The bloodied faces of the Shaito family, decimated when an American-made helicopter gunship fired a missile into their minivan, has become the symbol of the Israeli invasion of Lebanon.

  • Powerless No More

    The left's case for boycotting Obama in November
      Had Obama wanted, he could have governed to the left. Far to the left.
  • Turn Up That Music

    The Gen X-Millennial generation gap
      Why are millennials, um... well, there's no other way to say it: kind of boring?
  • The Obama Postmortem

    An autopsy of a political suicide
      Neither President Barack Obama nor the political clones that form his center-right cabinet can see that in a binary political culture anger gravitates to the opposite pole.
  • Stop Violent Politics

    Media spokesmen move to stifle violent speech
      The cognitive disconnect between reality and self-perception in American society and politics is bizarre and frightening.
