  • The cost of our disproportionate fear of terrorism

    The cost of our disproportionate fear of terrorism
    Many of us fear improbable and uncommon dangers more than everyday ones. This suggests we've got our anxieties backward. Think of flying versus driving. White-knuckle fliers, haunted by images of fiery plane crashes despite air travel's safety record,...
  • U.S. intervention in Syria unjustified

    U.S. intervention in Syria unjustified
    President Barack Obama is making the hard sell for intervention in Syria ("Obama faces 2-front threat," Sept. 9). He alludes vaguely to numerous bad things that will happen if the U.S. does not intervene. He ignores the bad effects likely to ensue...
  • Harford residents remember 9/11

    Harford residents remember 9/11
    The Old Mountain Road overpass across I-95 in the Joppa area was dappled with red, white and blue Wednesday as people gathered and waved American flags at motorists in an observance of the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Car and truck drivers...
  • Let Syrians fight it out among themselves — without our help

    Let Syrians fight it out among themselves — without our help
    So I'm confused — who is it we're supporting in Syria? ("The decisive moment," Sept. 9). It seems that we are against Bashar Assad, who is really a puppet for the ayatollahs in Iran. But are we for the "rebels," who are really puppets or al-Qaida?...
  • Attacking Assad will only help our enemies

    Attacking Assad will only help our enemies
    The Obama administration has decided to strike at the Assad regime in Syria because of its alleged use of chemical weapons in a civil war that has already killed about 100,000 people and sent millions of refugees into Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq ("...
  • Dropping bombs isn't the answer

    Dropping bombs isn't the answer
    The conflict in Syria is a horrific human tragedy: 100,000 dead, 2 million refugees and now, chemical warfare. I can sympathize with the impulse to "do something" about it ("Where is the outrage?" Sept. 4). However, this intervention, no matter how...
  • The vacillator in chief

    The vacillator in chief
    Observers and pundits of all stripes have not missed the unease with which President Barack Obama approaches his commander in chief duties. Indeed, Chicago-style "community activist" and "Commander of the United States Marine Corps" don't normally...
  • No military intervention in Syria

    No military intervention in Syria
    Why does our government not learn from the mistakes of the past? After the Russian invasion of Afghanistan we armed the opposition, and as a result the Taliban used those weapons to establish one of the most repressive regimes in post-World War II...
  • Four questions Obama must ask about Syria

    Four questions Obama must ask about Syria
    As some people who served in our government under President George W. Bush acknowledge the ever escalating tragic consequences of going to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, now seems the perfect time for those of influence on both sides of the aisle to ask...
  • Obama's Syria plan: deterring Assad — and everyone else, too

    Obama's Syria plan: deterring Assad — and everyone else, too
    President Barack Obama appears increasingly ready to launch a military strike in response to Syrian President Bashar Assad's apparent use of chemical weapons against civilians. But the goal won't be to topple the Assad government, even though...
  • Bradley Manning sentenced to 35 years in WikiLeaks case

    Bradley Manning sentenced to 35 years in WikiLeaks case
    Bradley Manning, the junior Army analyst convicted of espionage for leaking thousands of classified documents, was sentenced to 35 years in prison Wednesday, reigniting a debate over how far the government should go to punish those who disclose secret...
  • Manning testifies: 'I'm sorry that I hurt the United States'

    Manning testifies: 'I'm sorry that I hurt the United States'
    Army Pfc. Bradley E. Manning, speaking for the first time since he was charged with espionage for leaking thousands of military and diplomatic documents, apologized that his actions hurt the United States and told a judge Wednesday that he was "dealing...
