It seems that not a day passes without reports of “militants” being killed by remote control. Drones patrol Pakistan using high-powered optics to find and fire on those considered enemies by the men with the joysticks.

 

Talks with Pakistan over the end of an embargo on supply routes through that nation have broken down over U.S. refusal to apologize for the deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers killed by an American airstrike.

 In an effort to manufacture the perception of public support for “regime change” and an international war on Syria, Western officials and Arab dictatorships responsible for fomenting much of the bloodshed are spewing lies about the al-Assad dictatorship almost as quickly as the propaganda can be discredited. And like in Libya, in the crossfire suffering and dying are innocent civilians: children, Christians, minorities, and women.

 “¡Viva Cristo Rey!” (“Long Live Christ the King.”) That was the rallying cry for millions of Mexicans during the second and third decades of the 20th Century, as revolutionary governments, modeled after the Bolshevik regime in Russia, unleashed round after round of persecution and terror throughout Mexico.

General Motors' CEO Dan Akerson supports increasingly closer ties with the Chinese tyrants, explaining that it's good for business. 

 The communist dictatorship ruling mainland China, responsible for the blood of more innocent victims and for more abuses than any other single regime in world history, released a scathing so-called “human rights” report suggesting that America’s Second Amendment protection of the right to keep and bear arms represented a violation of human rights.

Is the Export-Import Bank “corporate welfare” or “critical support” for American businesses? According to Barack Obama, it’s both.  Back in 2008, then-Sen. Obama denounced the Ex-Im Bank as a government program that should be “cut back” because it had “become little more than a fund for corporate welfare.” But just last week President Obama signed a bill not only extending the bank’s charter for two more years but also increasing the amount of money it can loan by 40 percent.

We should be grateful that the Obama administration seems disinclined to intervene militarily in Syria. But let’s note that the administration has not kept hands off. In a variety of ways, it is already aiding the rebels. Moreover, White House spokesman Jay Carney says that all options — even military intervention — are on the table.

As Pakistani Christians facing persecution at the hands of their Muslim neighbors, the nation's judicial process is allegedly being hijacked by Islamists to persecute those who do not share their religion.
