30 April 2003 Anti-war protesters boast that there will be "no business as usual" until the war in Iraq ends. In Washington, San Francisco, and New York, peace activists have taken to the streets to block traffic, burn the President in effigy, and vomit on the steps of federal buildings. These activists represent a variety of causes but most share the belief that America, an evil nation, deserves to be defeated. In the May/June 1997 issue of The American Enterprise, James Webb took a closer look at what the Vietnam era protesters--many of whom are at ...
Niebuhr and Obama PDF Print E-mail

http://spectator.org/archives/2009/01/20/niebuhr-and-obama Last year, Barack Obama cited Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971) as one of his favorite philosophers. The choice contrasted with George W. Bush's famous citation in 2000 of Jesus Christ as his favorite philosopher. Citing a deceased theologian with a German name seems sophisticated, and Jimmy Carter likewise often pointed to Niebuhr, and justifiably so. Niebuhr was probably the 20th century's finest ethicist in the liberal Protestant tradition. Despite lay fans like Obama and Carter, who are themselves liberal Protestants, Niebuhr is today rarely embraced by the modern Religious Left, which prefers utopianism to Niebuhr's school of Christian realism. Niebuhr would appreciate the ...

HANOI, Vietnam — They hated the Americans. A famous photograph from the war years shows the words "Giet My" —Kill America — carved into a tree along the Ho Chi Minh Trail like lovers' initials. Downed U.S. pilots were beaten by crowds of furious civilians. In Bao Ninh's celebrated novel, "The Sorrow of War," the former North Vietnamese soldier wrote of comrades haunted by visions of African-American GIs roaming the jungle, of female soldiers raped and killed by American troops, of civilians killed in B-52 bombing raids. It has been 33 years since North Vietnam won the war, and Bao ...

The Soviet leader’s triumphant imperialism is the key to his rehabilitation under Putin, believes Anne Applebaum. Last Updated: 7:42PM GMT 29 Dec 2008 Who is the greatest Russian of all time? In the unlikely event that you answered “Stalin”, you would be in good company. One of the 20th century’s most horrific dictators has just come third in an opinion poll conducted by a Russian television station. Some 50 million people are said to have voted. Myself, I have some doubts about the veracity of this poll, particularly given that the television station in question is state-owned, and therefore manipulated by ...

Villagers, acting as human minesweepers, walked ahead of troops in dangerous areas to keep mericans from being blown up. Prisoners were subjected to a variation on waterboarding and jolted with electricity. Teenage boys fishing on a lake, as well as children tending flocks of ducks, were killed. ''There are hundreds of such reports in the war-crime archive, each one dutifully recorded, sometimes with no more than a passing sentence or two, as if the killing were as routine as the activity it interrupted,'' Deborah Nelson writes in ''The War Behind Me.''The archive, housed at the University of Michigan, holds documents ...

San Jose Mercury News (CA) - April 23, 1993Christmas 1972. Folk singer and anti-war activist Joan Baez was in Hanoi celebrating Christmas Eve Mass in a bomb shelter. The sound of bomb explosions could be clearly heard mixing with the peaceful "Silent Night, Holy Night." The next morning, amid the rubble on Hanoi streets, Baez recorded a Vietnamese woman sobbing while searching for her son, who was killed during the air raids. Baez's ballad "Where Are You Now, My Son" took the woman's cry as its title. Listening to it brings back sad memories.I was a 16-year-old junior at Saigon's ...
