    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...
  • Can sanity return from exile when it comes to Iran?

    Can sanity return from exile when it comes to Iran?
    Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran ... Or as Mitt Romney put it, playing the irresponsible-lunatic game convincingly enough to become the leading Republican presidential candidate: "If we re-elect Barack Obama, Iran will have a nuclear weapon." The...
  • 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...
  • Another neocon hit job on Ron Paul

    Neoconservative Jonah Goldberg's recent column on Rep. Ron Paul ("The painful naivete of Ron Paul," Dec. 26) is one of many recent neocon hit pieces on the candidate since he rose to the top in the upcoming Iowa primary. Mr. Paul terrifies the neocons...
  • 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...

  • On Iranian threat, why hasn't Obama spoken out?

    That the Navy's Fifth Fleet was the one to declare the U.S. intention to keep the Straight of Hormuz clear, rather than the president or the secretary of defense speaking for the nation, suggested a weakening of the principle of civilian control of the...
  • What will it take before President Obama stands up to the mullahs in Tehran?

    The muted communication from a spokesperson for the Navy's Fifth Fleet that it won't tolerate an Iranian attempt to close to Strait of Hormuz and shut off much of the world's oil supply is not an adequate response to the threat. It comes off as another...
  • If Iran gets the bomb, another Holocaust is on the way

    An article in The Sun says that Iran has announced that it has produced a nuclear fuel rod and has test-fired a missile ("Iran says it has produced its first nuclear fuel rod," Jan. 2). Since the world hasn't yet seen fit to stop these maniacs, we might...
  • 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...
  • Sanctions against Iran are a prelude to war

    By punishing Iran for its nuclear research and development, U.S. and European sanctions only give incentive to Iran to double-down on the program ("U.S. sees Iran sanctions bite," Jan. 8). That's because the whole purpose of nuclear capability is to...
  • Marines' abuses were a temporary lapse, but Taliban depravity is permanent

    Reading The Sun's pious outrage at U.S. Marines urinating on dead Taliban fighters reminded me of Nietzsche's remarks on decadent religions — cultures so wrapped up in the make-belief worlds of the afterlife that they've come to devalue life in this...
