Being critical of President Obama’s push for a peaceful end to Iran’s Nuclear ambitions is plain ignorant. Our President does not want war. He is giving peace a chance rather than military strikes and another war. If it does not work and Iran fails to abide by the peaceful treaty, we can then act. I do think, however, if Israel feels any type of threat from Iran, they will act anyway and we may not have any say in the conflict.
Everybody loves veterans. But it often isn’t easy to be a veteran.
Bill Clinton left office after two terms as President in 2000.

It is great news that U.S. forces have captured Abu Anas al-Libi, the Al Qaeda leader. Might I suggest that they now neutralize another terrorist leader, currently ensconced in Congress, who is holding the country to ransom with his demands?
For Iraq War veteran “John,” his wife “Sharon” and their teenage son and daughter, United Food Bank is the lifeline that helps them get by.
If you’re like me, you have some real doubts about increasing our involvement in Syria by responding to that country’s use of deadly gas attacks.
President Obama’s decision to defer to Congress the decision about whether to slap around Syria was a pure political masterstroke.
Every time I hear Sen. John McCain talking about border security I picture him strolling along the
Local veterans are responding to the potential U.S. involvement in Syria.
Amid a stalled momentum in the House of Representatives, Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake defended their proposed immigration legislation during a town hall event held at the Mesa Arts Center on Aug. 27.
“I know that we have the military capability to impose a ‘no-fly’ zone, to crater their runways and their fixed installations where fuel and parts are, and establish a ‘no-fly’ zone with Patriot missiles,” McCain said last month.
America hasn’t “won” a war since 1945. Korean War cost a billion dollars and didn’t change a thing. 36,574 Americans died and 103,284 were wounded. During the 1967 Israel/Arab War, 34 American Sailors were killed and 171 wounded by the Israel Air Force.
How could the Obama administration even considered for one minute arming the Syrian rebels?
Early in President’s Obama’s presidency some critiques of the president were claiming he was traveling around the world on what they called an “apology tour,” but nothing can be farther from the truth. Looking back, yes, President Obama seemed to be uneasy when meeting some world leaders, but no one can deny the fact that his presidency has taken on our foes with a precise and deadly intensity.
Prolific documentary-maker Alex Gibney delivers a gripping account of the wins and losses of hard-charging idealism on the front lines of the information wars in "We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks." Exhaustively researched and balanced in its view of the controversial key player, the film slips in ahead of DreamWorks' dramatic take on the exploits of Julian Assange, "The Fifth Estate," which is currently shooting.
Imagine you are a 19-year-old Marine. You are riding in a Humvee with four other Marines — your friends — when an improvised explosive device (IED) explodes.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Navajo Code Talkers are legendary. Then there was Cpl. Ira Hamilton Hayes, the Pima Indian who became a symbol of courage and patriotism when he and his fellow Marines raised the flag over Iwo Jima in 1945.
Former U.S. Navy specialist Ron White will commemorate the 2,200 servicemen and women killed during the ongoing Afghanistan mission by writing their names on a specially constructed wall at Chase Field during the Arizona Diamondbacks’ doubleheader against the Texas Rangers on Memorial Day. He will do it from memory.
I can’t think of a country that doesn’t have something like Memorial Day. Whether democratic or totalitarian or anything in between, national honors are paid annually to those who have given their lives for their countries.
Horrible, the loss of three innocent lives in the Boston bombing! Then what word could one use to express the fact that between 158,000 and 202,000 civilians have died as a result of the ongoing conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan? It is understandable that the attack in Boston is a national tragedy for the United States. Our sympathies and prayers go out to the victims. But why is it that the loss of innocent lives in the Middle East has been hardly worthy of a second thought, if any, on our part?
I voted for Barack Obama, twice.

This does not include dead or wounded U.S. civilians or private contractors nor the 300,000 plus brain injury and PTSD cases.
