Europe is to Iran as the United States was to ________?

The European Union, with its tight sanctions on Iran, may be pushing a wounded tiger into a corner just as the United States did to another country a few years ago.  I'm sure you remember what happened then...

Does Socialism Work? Just Ask France

If you're careful as a national government, you can pretend that socialism works, and you can hide for a long time the fact that it doesn't.  It's still sort of working in Germany.  But if you're not careful, soon you'll be France, the new socialist "sick man of Europe".

War, Peace, and the Parable of the Ten Virgins: Trimming Our Lamps with Love

Trying the same thing by blocking Iranian oil sales is an excellent case of those not understanding history being doomed to repeat it. Or maybe they are just ignoring the history...

Ron Paul Treachery in Iowa?

A friend of mine asked me this morning, knowing that I am committed to Ron Paul for president, what I thought about the Iowa caucus results from a couple of nights ago. In a way, I am surprised at how well he did, based on the regular undermining that he received at the hands of the Establishment media. But in a way, I'm also surprised that he didn't do better. There might be a reason for that--one that involves more underhandedness.
