  • The U.S. shouldn't prop up tyrants, even if they're on 'our' side

    I awoke Monday to news that North Korea's tyrant, Kim Jong Il, is dead ("Kim Jong Il, 1942-2011: Enigmatic leader," Dec. 19). The article in The Sun was part of a confluence of events that include the military hearing at Fort Meade for accused Pentagon...
  • Baltimorean taking up the Libyan rebel cause

    Baltimorean taking up the Libyan rebel cause
    As described by those who know him, Matthew VanDyke comes off as footloose and maybe a little feckless. He has worked sporadically, sometimes getting freelance writing or teaching gigs but more often traveling to the Middle East for months at a time...
  • On North Korea, caution is better than rash words

    On North Korea, caution is better than rash words
    Perhaps there has been nothing more baffling to American eyes than the photographs of hordes of obviously grief-stricken North Koreans mourning the death of their 69-year-old dictator, Kim Jong Il. Under his reign and that of his father, the people of the...
  • Cut to the chase: It'll be Obama-Clinton vs. Romney-Rubio

    Cut to the chase: It'll be Obama-Clinton vs. Romney-Rubio
    My political prediction for 2012: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton versus Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio. Joe Biden has been a good and energetic vice president, but President Obama will need to stir the passions of the Democratic base, and Mr. Biden won'...
  • Missing four months, Md. man in Libyan prison, mother says

    Missing four months, Md. man in Libyan prison, mother says
    The mother of a Maryland man missing in Libya since March said Thursday that he is being held in a prison in Tripoli. Sharon VanDyke said she could not divulge details of how she learned the whereabouts of her son Matthew VanDyke, who was in Libya to...
  • The U.S. war in Libya is illegal

    I fail to understand how the Obama administration can legitimately continue the war in Libya. Even though Predator drones are the new weapons of choice and some military gurus feel they are not actual combatants, it's wrong to keep this conflict going...
  • Premature to call Gadhafi's fall a policy vindication

    The mob that could not contain itself or wait to put Moammar Gadhafi on trial — that instead presided over his bloody end — is cut from the same cloth as their former dictator. They cannot possibly preside over Libya's affairs gently or...
  • Gadhafi's arsenal: Still dangerous

    Gadhafi's arsenal: Still dangerous
    Even as Libya's rebels prepare to attack the last remaining strongholds of former dictator Muammar Gadhafi, disturbing reports have surfaced of widespread looting at weapons caches abandoned by his retreating forces. The regime's stockpiles included...
  • VanDyke to leave Libya in a couple of weeks, mother says

    VanDyke to leave Libya in a couple of weeks, mother says
    Matthew VanDyke — the 32-year-old Baltimorean who was jailed in Libya for nearly six months and then stayed on to join the rebels seeking to overthrow dictator Moammar Gadhafi — plans to come home "in a couple of weeks," said his mother,...
  • Assassination is better than a trial?

    I am shocked by your editorial stating the death of Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi at the hands of the rebels who deposed him was the best possible outcome and that "had he been captured alive, the nation's fledgling leaders would have been forced to...
  • Don't bet on anything good coming from Gadhafi's death

    Don't bet on anything good coming from Gadhafi's death
    "Another one bites the dust And another one gone, and another one gone Another one bites the dust." -- Queen Forgive me if I don't join the State Department, American officials and world leaders in their euphoric Hallelujah Chorus celebrating the...
  • Gadhafi's death: A validation of Obama's policy

    Gadhafi's death: A validation of Obama's policy
    The death of Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi at the hands of the rebels who deposed him was the best possible outcome of the months-long civil war in that North African country. Had he remained at large, he could have been a symbol of resistance to the...
