The real villain is the Iranian regime, which has colonized Syria and is colonizing Lebanon in its attempt to squeeze out U.S. influence in the Middle East.
President Obama feels boxed in by his ‘red line’ promise.
Many of you have been shocked by the story of Malala Yousafzai, a 14-year old Pakistani girl shot in the head by a Taliban terrorist because of a blog she wrote and interviews she gave starting in 2009, criticizing the Taliban and calling for the education of women. This lovely, self-possessed girl, who speaks and writes on a level far above her age, and who planned to enter politics (video), may or may not survive. If she does not, it will be an enormous loss for Pakistan and for the world.

This is not a post that I wanted to write, though I knew it was coming.
It is reported that U.S. officials admit that there is no way to prevent Assad from using the chemical weapons that were prepared.
I can’t see any way to complete the operation against Hamas without a ground invasion.
