  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Rachel Marsden: Russia re-Putined

    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...
  • Cut foreign aid to Armenia and other countries that work against United States

    I am an American who is concerned about our debt and excessive spending, such as on foreign aid to nations that work against us and kill our soldiers. Since the Senate and House Appropriations committees are considering the FY2012 foreign aid bill, with...
  • Hamas will never accede to peace with Israel

    The Sun editorial "Mr. Abbas' mission" (Feb. 13) is a triumph of wishful thinking over analysis. Its self-contradictions and omissions include: •Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas "would have to exercise the kind of statesmanship that has...
  • 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 trip to Copenhagen 'not necessary,' Steele says

    Obama trip to Copenhagen 'not necessary,' Steele says
    Republican National Chairman Michael S. Steele said Tuesday that President Barack Obama's upcoming trip to Copenhagen is "nice" but not essential business for the president. Steele began a brief telephone news conference by criticizing Obama's lack of...
  • Bush says U.S. must spread democracy

    WASHINGTON -- President Bush laid out a broad vision Thursday of an American mission to spread democracy throughout the Middle East and the rest of the world, saying, "Freedom can be the future of every nation." Engendering democracy across the Middle...
