  • The really outrageous part of Romney's foreign trip

    It's curious that Mitt Romney's fundraiser in Israel in itself has raised so little commentary, much less criticism, in mainstream news media ("'Culture' comment follows Romney," July 31). If he or another presidential candidate had held one in any...
  • Foreign affairs council stifles free speech

    The article, "Free speech clash grips U.N." (Sept. 25) could also apply to the recent lecture at the Baltimore Council for Foreign Affairs (BCFA), where its president, Frank Burd, caved into pressure from pro-Israel groups and would not allow questions...
  • No good options for Iran

    No good options for Iran
    Speculation in Israel about the possibility of a strike on Iran's nuclear program in the coming weeks has intensified, and not just because of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's tough talk in Jerusalem. Mr. Romney called for the U.S. and Israel...
  • Op-ed takes a too rosy view of Iranian intentions

  • President Obama should resist the drumbeat for war with Iran

    The drumbeat for war with Iran is getting scarier and scarier ("No good options for Iran," Aug. 2). The situation has escalated now that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has concluded that the recent suicide attack that killed five Israelis in Bulgaria...
  • Sometimes, you almost want to feel sorry for Mitt Romney

    Sometimes, you almost want to feel sorry for Mitt Romney
    I am starting to feel sorry for Mitt Romney. On an international tour to three countries, he made news in two of them by dissing the London Olympics and infuriating the Palestinians. The poor guy -- for months, people have complained that he never says...
  • U.S. kowtows to Israel

    Ray McGovern, in his op-ed ("Is Israel fixing the intel?" July 31), questions whether Israel is our ally since there is no mutual defense treaty between the U.S. and Israel. I also question whether Israel is an ally, not so much because of a recognized...
  • The U.S. talks tough on Iran, does nothing

    Sun letter writers shouldn't worry that the U.S. is moving closer to war with Iran, since neither President Barack Obama nor Mitt Romney back up their words with action ("Obama should resist the drumbeat for war with Iran," Aug. 6). Secretary of Defense...

    Maryland sees a future in drones
    In a cavernous production facility at AAI Unmanned Aircraft Systems in Hunt Valley, workers assemble remote-control planes that help U.S. forces identify enemy targets. At the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, researchers...
  • Romney or Obama? Vote none of the above

    The column "A conservative case against Mitt Romney" (Aug.7) is correct when it states that neither presidential candidate is worth voting for. The problem is that both candidates are representatives of their political parties, which are incompetent and...
