Axis of Evil: The Secret Hypocrisy of the Left

...It's not art. Let's get that straight right off the bat. The goal of the "artist" is NOT to create art or express something. The goal of the artist is simply to enrage people he disagrees with. Those who defend the "artist" are really only defending him or her because they have the same political enemies as the artist.
Nobody actually enjoys this kind of "art."

War with China: 2008-2010?

In an earlier post called "The Looming Threat", I wrote that China would likely attack Taiwan sometime "before 2015". In light of better information, I am revising my estimate to say that if there is a war it will occur sometime between 2008 and 2010.

In this post I will review why the Chinese might attack, when they might attack and why, why we should defend Taiwan, and how the 2008 Olympics in Beijing will affect China's decision on when to attack.
