  • 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...

  • Home for Christmas

    Home for Christmas
    This week, the last U.S. combat troops left Iraq. After more than eight years of fighting an ill-conceived, inexcusably prolonged war made more devastating by official ineptitude and hubris, America's soldiers are coming home for Christmas. The nation...

    Can sanity return from exile when it comes to Iran?

  • Should the West believe Egypt's new president?

    Should the West believe Egypt's new president?
    Throughout America's history, there have been people who denied threats from our enemies. During the Revolutionary War, significant numbers sided with the British monarchy. Enablers in politics, the media and even religion helped Communism remain in power...

    Rachel Marsden: Russia re-Putined
    So Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putinhas just been re-presidented for at least another six years, during which we can all watch his newly tucked eyes migrate back to where they used to be. And as surely as a pound dog comes with fleas, this election...
  • Iran nuclear threat inflated by Israel

    The Sun's editorial ("Quiet the war drums," March 8) is correct in calling for diplomacy on Iran rather than dangerous military action from either Israel or the U.S. In fact, there is no evidence that Iran has either nuclear weapons or a weapons program....
  • Obama's calm is needed to balance the hotheads calling for war with Iran

    For op-ed writer Robert O. Freedman, it's not a question of if Israel is to launch an attack on Iran, but when ("Is reelection driving Obama's Israel policy?" March 7). I am tired of the hawks' view that every Middle Eastern episode of tension can be...
  • Make Israel a member of NATO

    I read with interest Robert O. Freedman's op-ed column discussing the possibility of Israel bombing Iran to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons ("Is reelection driving Obama's Israel policy?, March 6). Critics of that policy have advocated...
  • Where's the outrage over Palestinian rocket attacks on civilians in Israel?

    After a very short period of peace, Palestinian terrorists in Gaza have resumed their attacks on Israel, launching massive numbers of Grad rockets at schools, playgrounds, hospitals and homes ("Israeli strikes, Gaza rockets end weeks of relative calm,"...
  • Overstated Iranian 'threat' puts U.S. on path to war

    Overstated Iranian 'threat' puts U.S. on path to war
    A neocon joke, at the beginning of the Iraq war, was: "Anyone can go to Baghdad. Real men go to Tehran." It wasn't funny then, and it isn't funny now. Unfortunately, those "real men" who want to wage war on Iran are making so much noise that they may...
