Re: Paolo3, I can only ask, what are you smoking? While much argument can be made over whether George Bush was a good or bad president, but the comparison to Obama is truly ludicrous. At least Bush was able to understand that we had enemies in the Middle East and remembered that Israel is our only and staunch allie in that part of the world.

Re: william 4830, Very good analogy. The only difference was that Nero knew he was ignoring the problem. Obama isn't even aware of there being one. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
As I read the many comments by people trying to argue against the premise of a strong U.S> Military that can and should be used to instill the fear of God into these terrorist nations. And for those of you that want to argue that these terrorist nations have many innocent citizens, please allow me to remind you that the Nazi era in germany and 1940's Japan was not populated by innocents. Yes, some were, but their citizens were supportive of those maniac regimes. Evil can only exist when good men do nothing. Mr. Schlichter's column is right on point and should be read by everyone. For those of you who find fault with his opinions, please offer an alternative, that is assuming you have any understanding of the evil times we live in. I was born in East Germany and grew up in the post Nazi era under Communism, the difference was minor. My family had to escape to the west in order to have even a small amount of freedom. I served in the U.S. Marine Corps, gladly, because I knew that despite the manner in which the Vietnam War was run, I at least understood what the Vietnamese would suffer if the Communist won. Just look at the death that came to their citizens after Vietnam fell. Yes, you can point to a fairly good economy thew compared to the 60's, but that is because even the Vietnamese government can see that total communism has failed and they were smart enough to adopt a freer economy. Totalitarianism always fails and combined with fanatical religious beliefs it will not only fail but kill millions. Strenght is the only thing these fanatics understand and American strength is not the same as what these fanatics believe in. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
Re: Fidel Castro Denounces 'Fascist' Israel’s 'Genocide' of Palestinians The sentence at the end of your article makes no sense whatsoever. "Political power does interest me in the least. I will never assume such power.” (Fidel Castro, April 1959.) I believe that the author meant to quote Castro correctly, but the words "power does interest me in the least..." should have been "doesn't. It seems that your publication no longer bothers with editors or any sort of proofreading. I realize that newspapers around the country no longer seem to care whether the English language is grammatically correct and I don't know whether to blame the schools, including colleges. They no longer seem to teach English grammar, but the sheer laziness of so called journalist is just unacceptable. Is there any wonder that newspapers and magazines are dying. does no one understand the concept of spell and grammar check? By the way, this is not the first time I've written to you about this problem, but the courtesy of a response is also non existent. Shame on the laziness that is so evident.

Dear Miss Coulter, It's not often that I am even in slight disagreement with you, but this column was just a little rough on the volunteers that go to the pits of the earth. While everything you wrote in your usual superb sarcasm and dare I say even a little cynicism, there is a need to try and bring civility and some modern medicine to the darkest parts of the world. It is A Christian duty to help the most desperate of this world. There is no question that you are correct that some may do this type of volunteer work out of reasons other than just be willing to share their knowledge with others in those parts of the world, it is also true that the numbers that volunteer there are indeed few. Yes, there is no doubt that we have plenty of needy people here in the U.S., and more should be done to help them. On the other hand, just like the governments of those "other" countries are the root cause of their problems, so is it true right here in the U.S. and it's getting worse daily because of our incompetent, so called leadership. We had and despite the best efforts of this administration still have the best health care system in the world at least for now. Do you honestly believe that we can't spare a couple hundred medical professionals? as you have often said, we live in a free country and therefore this doctor and nurse had the right to fulfill whatever need they saw wherever they saw that need. Keep up the good work Ann, but please let this one go. Respectfully yours, Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
I'm not quite sure why you felt it necessary to insult Pet Rocks with the comparison. LOL Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
You like many others today assume that Brand actually has a brain. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
A truly brilliant reply. The trouble is that now I can't get the words and melody out of my brain. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
Re: 3706, You are right on point. Unfortunately snobs like Mr. Greenberg are incapable of understanding satire. They are simply too brilliant to understand it and therefore must attack anyone who is capable of writing and understanding is. Fred Speckmann commonsenseforamericans@yahoo.com
And your proof of your allegations would be what? Although you may be correct, it is absurd for you to make these kinds of allegations without providing some evidence. it is always incumbent upon the accuser to provide evidence if they want to be taken seriously.

I'm sorry to say that Castro has not yet met his maker for his just punishment.
