  • Rodricks wrong on McCormick's Iran decision

    In his column ("Not even cake sprinkles for Iran" April 12), Dan Rodricks questions the wisdom of the decision by the spice company, McCormick, to stop doing business in Iran and argues that more good than harm would come from young Iranians being exposed...
  • Muddled Middle East

    Muddled Middle East
    When revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt erupted earlier this year quickly forced out long-time autocratic rulers, many in the West hoped that the pro-democracy demonstrations there would unleash a tidal wave of change across the Arab world. To an extent,...
  • McCormick deserves praise for stand on Iran

    Dan Rodricks' column ("Not even cake sprinkles for Iran," April 12) belittling McCormick & Co.'s decision to stop doing business in Iran because it will deprive Iranian children of cake sprinkles misses the greater issue. Iran's leaders fund terrorism,...

    Baltimore architectural firm in demand for overseas projects
    While many architectural and planning firms have seen a drop-off in design work as a result of the recession and the slow recovery, one Baltimore-based company has remained busy by finding work in other countries. Development Design Group has carved...
  • U.S. too hard on Iran, too soft on Israel

    The article, "Iran talks yield little progress" (May 25), describes the hypocrisy that drives U.S. foreign policy. We demand that Iran not be able to enrich uranium, even though the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty allows it, while offering Iran nothing in...

  • When the pump runs dry

    When the pump runs dry
    Under international pressure over its nuclear ambitions, Iran is now threatening to take pre-emptive action, which could include disrupting oil supplies to the West. It will come as a shock to most Americans, but no presidential candidate — nor,...
  • Does Iran want a war?

    With American officials all but falling over themselves in pleading with Israel not to attack Iran, the question arises: What would be worse for the region, the prospect of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons capability, or an Israeli military strike to...
  • The extra dollars you're paying at the pump are going to Wall Street speculators

    The extra dollars you're paying at the pump are going to Wall Street speculators
    Nothing drives voter sentiment like the price of gas -- already up nearly 30 cents from the start of the year and hitting $4 in many places. The last time gas topped $4 was 2008. And nothing energizes Republicans like rising energy prices. House...
  • Israel's friends seek U.S.-Iran war

    Claims to the contrary not withstanding, the resolution introduced in the Senate for tougher sanctions against Iran is a call to war ("Senators: Get tough on Iran," Feb. 26). The extreme sanctions presently in place being just short of war now, what...
  • Bring our troops home: There's nothing in Afghanistan worth fighting for

    Max Obuszewski's letter expresses the general consensus of the American public against the overseas wars we are fighting ("America can't afford to wage endless war," Feb. 27). Yet there is now talk of extending the war in Afghanistan beyond 2014, and also...
  • Is reelection driving Obama's Israel policy?

    Is reelection driving Obama's Israel policy?
    For many years, Iran has threatened to "wipe Israel off the map," even as it gets closer and closer to developing nuclear weapons that could enable it to follow through on its threat. However, the question now is whether this is the optimum time for...
