American heroes? Let's just take two of America’s finest and best - the fire crews of NYFD (Twin Towers Attack) and the naval crew of the USS Liberty (Israeli Forces Attack). The photo depicting the raw courage of Mike Kehoe (NYFD, Engine 28, Fireman 12898) going up the stairs of the World Trade Centre summed up the selfless bravery of the NYFD fire-fighters. Courage is not the absence of fear but continuing despite the fear into danger. Amazingly, Mike Kehoe got out alive, sadly his close … [More]

Evidently, that's not enough for a leftist Euroweenie.
... it is still difficult to explain to outsiders why the Greek government has identified at least 580 job categories deemed to be hazardous enough to merit retiring early — at age 50 for women and 55 for men.
As a consequence of decades of bargains struck between strong unions and weak governments, Greece has promised …[More]
If words attributed to Stalin ("The Second World War” by Winston Churchill) are going to be used, it’s important that the context be clearly stated - for a text out of context becomes a pretext.

The video was not about the Vatican nor was it about the U.S. Military nor about United States defense appropriations. Perhaps you have not yet learned a very basic, … [More]
"The Pope! How many divisions has he got?" - The Vatican City State may well be the smallest state in the world but it is a spiritual superpower with great moral influence. With 42 cents in every income-tax dollar going directly to the US military, I can only wonder how long this temporal superpower will last before imploding (SIPRI - Global distribution of military expenditure: #1 USA, 46.5%; #2 PRC, 6.6%).
I have no idea what the current EU politics are but they’ve created a new Supreme Soviet; a government without a country. What is the advantage of belonging to the EU? That citizen-less government will always need more and more money to give itself relevance and power.
Unfortunately, the gene pool that would have revolted against this insanity have either been killed or have migrated to the New World. So, the Euroweenies may quietly go into slavery (further slavery) with folded hands.
