  • 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...
  • Egypt and Islam

    Egypt and Islam
    Initial results from Egypt's first elections since the fall of President Hosni Mubarak are in, and it appears Islamist parties have captured the lion's share of the vote. The rise of politicians eager to curtail basic human rights, particularly for women,...
  • GOP presidential field outdoes itself again and again

    GOP presidential field outdoes itself again and again
    Well, it's about time. At last we have a candidate with the guts to close down our embassy in Iran were she elected president. Thank you, Michele Bachmann. Oh — and thank you Jimmy Carter as well, since he closed down the embassy there in 1980 in...
  • Five steps to isolate Iran without dooming the economy

    Five steps to isolate Iran without dooming the economy
    With economies around the world teetering, we must solve our security threats with an eye not only on reducing danger but also on how our actions affect job creation and retention. This applies especially to Iran. A war with Tehran — or an Iran with...
  • Sanctions won't stop Iran's nuclear program

    Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi's five steps for dealing with Iran are steps to confrontation disguised as an alternative to war ("Five steps to isolate Iran," Dec. 6). Sanctions are self-evidently counter-productive as a means to stop or alter Iran's nuclear...
  • 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...
  • Quiet the war drums

    Quiet the war drums
    The drumbeat for war only helps Iran by driving up oil prices, undermining the effect of sanctions on its economy and stifling domestic opponents of the regime. President Barack Obama conveyed that message clearly and emphatically to the American Israel...
  • Is the U.S. being drawn inexorably into a war with Iran?

    The American people are apparently just spectators in the matter of whether or not we attack Iran ("Is re-election driving Obama's Israel policy?" March 6). Our politicians bend over backward to assure Israel that we will support it in a war with Iran...
  • U.S. should not be dragged into another war

    Robert O. Freedman's arrogance is beyond belief ("Election politics and Iran," March 7). If Israel wants to bomb Iran, so be it — but leave America out of that mess. It might occur to Professor Freedman that an attack on Iran would kill lots...
  • Drop the 'two-war' plan

    Drop the 'two-war' plan
    As defense strategists at the Pentagon carry out their review of how to make roughly $400 billion in cuts over 10 years, and Congress considers the possibility of reductions twice as large as required by the supercommittee's failure to reach agreement,...
  • Heads should roll over the loss of a U.S. drone in Iran

    The reported loss of a U.S. surveillance drone over Iran was an unforgivable mishap ("Drone that crashed in Iran may give away military secrets," Dec. 6). Why wasn't it loaded with explosives programmed to self-destruct if the aircraft experienced a...
