On Dec. 2, 1941, the following statement by Diplomat Hugh Grant appeared in the New York Times; “If the Japanese really want war, now is the time to let them have it. I believe we could smash them within a period of a few months with our superior air and naval forces.”
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.
The nuclear deal brokered by the United States and Iran in Geneva is historic. Just as the agreement to peacefully disarm Syria of its chemical weapons demonstrated, diplomacy makes the world a safer place.
Everybody loves veterans. But it often isn’t easy to be a veteran.
An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario — that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours — while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for.
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?
Boy Scout troop 653 of Mesa is hosting a fundraising garage sale Saturday, Nov. 2 from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The “Grand Old Peace” party is still just the same ol’ Grand Old Publicity party.
Sheila Polk forget to mention what most police officers consider to the the greatest danger of marijuana in her recent editorial (The Arizona Republic’s ‘My Turn,’ evtnow.com/5uw, Sept. 13).
Follow the adventures of the March sisters—Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy—as they come of age during the Civil War in this musical adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s beloved novel.
Chemical weapons are a horror for all of the world. BUT, why isn’t the UN in stepping up the plate?
Does “GOP” now stand for the “Grand Old Peace” party? You’d think so if you listen to many Republican conservative talkers, pundits, and nervous politicians holding their fingers up to the wind, then holding up a certain finger to the White House.
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.
The most often-used argument I hear for agreeing to take military action in Syria is that if we don’t, the United States will appear weak-willed.
I arrived in Vietnam just after our first 8,000 “advisors” landed there to “assess the situation.” Our leaders decided to show the free world that we would stand up to Communist aggression. We sent more and more troops and resources; the USSR. sent only resources. We lost the war and 58,000 precious lives.
U.S. Sen. John McCain faced a tough crowd largely opposed to military action in Syria during a town hall meeting Thursday in Phoenix.
Arizona’s congressional delegation is split on whether to support President Barack Obama’s request to authorize the use of force in Syria, although many members say they’re still undecided.
Local veterans are responding to the potential U.S. involvement in Syria.
“To the midwest venter implying they were safer 50 years ago. I’ll bet you lived in a ‘sundown town’, which would have intimidated anyone of color to keep moving on to the next town. Safe for what color of resident? Pretty obvious, ‘Sundown.’”
Tough-talking Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is warning civilians who embark on armed patrols in remote desert terrain that they could end up with "30 rounds fired into" them by one of his deputies.
A new Arizona court ruling says police can take temporary custody of a person's gun for officer-safety reasons even if the person's contact with police was voluntary.
“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.
As we mourn the loss of 19 of our courageous Firefighters, we should remember them all as our Navy Seals. They go to the front lines to fight the enemy. Our Navy Seals are the best of the best. The same should be said for our Hotshots that fight these tragic fires in our country. They are on the front line in a war with a deadly enemy. They are our warriors just like the Navy Seals. The Hotshots that died in this tragic fire were in a war fighting for all of us. The Hotshots still up there in that war we have to pray for.
I applaud the headline over Tom Patterson’s guest commentary, “U.S. involvement in Syrian conflict a lose-lose proposition” (June 30, 2013), that protests yet another blundering intervention in the Middle East but who in their right mind does support this aggression? Then I remembered U.S. Sen. John McCain’s May 2013 trip to that war-torn land to meet with rebels and his promise of American support for their cause. Also Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, has been begging for U.S. military action for the past year. And please, do not forget the French, who seem eager for the U.S. taxpayer to fund another war.
