Isolationism With Drones Is Leading to American Failure

National Peace Officers' Memorial Service, Washington, D.C., America - 15 May 2015
The Times of London reported this Sunday that, according to “senior American officials,” Saudi Arabia has decided to purchase nuclear weapons “off-the-shelf” from Pakistan.

Whether or not this specific report turns out to be accurate, it is clearly the case that the Gulf Arabs feel betrayed by the Obama administration’s facilitation of an Iranian nuclear program, not to mention our slow-motion withdrawal from the role of securing commerce in the Persian Gulf, and our abandonment of an ally in Yemen. It stands to reason that the Gulf Arabs will want nukes of their own, and they have not been shy about broadcasting that fact. So the result of Obama’s extension of an olive branch to the mullahs, his pursuit of realignment and peace in the Middle East, is a regional nuclear arms race.

What The Humungus Crisis Can Teach Us About the Muhammed Cartoon Crisis

The Humungus 2

I was recently watching Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior—a documentary sent back in time from the near future about the state of the world following a catastrophic global war, a world in which gasoline is the single most precious commodity—and I realized that there is much we can learn from it. For instance, the Humungus teaches us that we cannot cower in the face of terrorists who demand that we give up our rights so as to live in peace.

No, seriously.*

Bill Clinton sits down with George Stephanopoulos in 2013.

ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos has acknowledged donating $50,000 to Clinton Foundation between 2013 and 2014, and has apologized for not disclosing it during his coverage of the controversy surrounding the foundation’s relationships with foreign donors.

13 Angry Seymour Hersh Responses, Ranked

An artist's rendition of Sy Hersh

Seymour Hersh this week authored an article for the London Review of Books in which he claims that the Pakistanis were holding onto Osama bin Laden for a number of years prior to the American raid in which the al Qaeda mastermind was killed. Additionally, Hersh’s sources allege that the Obama administration and the Pakistani government orchestrated an elaborate plan to simulate an American raid on the compound, after which bin Laden’s body would be taken to Afghanistan and, a week later, it would be announced that he had been killed in a drone strike.* Oh, also, SEALS shot bin Laden so many times that his body was torn to pieces and they then chucked portions of his body out of the helicopter on the ride back to base. For funsies. No word on whether or not this corpse desecration was at the behest of Opus Dei.

AP

As you are likely aware, there’s little I hate more than a dumb social media mob. So, needless to say, I was pretty annoyed last night when Jennifer Kim, a violinist with the Washington National Opera, was attacked by idiots on social media for stating that she was annoyed Amtrak wouldn’t let her back on the train to get her violin.

Note: This is a woman who has just been in a deadly train derailment and was forced to leave behind an instrument that likely cost her thousands of dollars and with which she earns her living. How did the idiots on Twitter treat this victim?
