Obama Doctrine? Who Is Bullshitting Who Here?
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer utters the term “the Obama Doctrine” and voila, all of a sudden we have a doctrine? Who the hell is bullshitting who here? President Barack Obama has no doctrine!

Middle East Intervention Is More About Oil Than Democracy

Middle East Intervention Is More About Oil Than Democracy
I don’t know if the Middle East will ever have a type of democracy that resembles ours, but it isn’t for the lack of trying.

Libyan Rebels, Coalition Intervention and NATO Discord Equals A Powder Keg!
The Allied Coalition has been busy destroying Moammar Gadhafi’s ability to wreak havoc on Libyan Rebels, civilians or ???.

If there is one thing that I have learned in my lifetime, if France is eager to use American “military muscle,” then try and avoid it at all costs. Matter of a fact, run like hell!
