The real "Great Escape"

Many  people have seen the Steve McQueen movie The Great Escape.  This is about the Greatescape_2 tunnel the real POWs used.
Although the following graphic story fails to tell that most of the men who escaped were caught and killed, the genius that went into this tunnel is still remarkable.

Wall Street Journal - Israel's 60 Year Test

Sixty years after its birth, Israel continues to test the proposition that reality counts for more than Palestine_post perception.

The Web site eyeontheun.org keeps a running tally of all United Nations resolutions, decisions and reports condemning this or that country for this or that human rights violation (real or alleged). Between January 2003 and March 2008, tiny Israel – its population not half that of metropolitan Cairo's – was condemned no fewer than 635 times. The runners-up were Sudan at 280, the Democratic Republic of the Congo at 209, and Burma at 183. North Korea was cited a mere 60 times, a third as many as the United States.  See Wall Street Journal.  See Israel Then and Now.

Dumb as we want to be - American "energy policy"

It is great to see that we finally have some national unity on energy policy. Unfortunately, the unifying ideaDumb5  is so ridiculous, so unworthy of the people aspiring to lead our nation, it takes your breath away. Hillary Clinton has decided to line up with John McCain in pushing to suspend the federal excise tax on gasoline, 18.4 cents a gallon, for this summer’s travel season. This is not an energy policy. This is money laundering: we borrow money from China and ship it to Saudi Arabia and take a little cut for ourselves as it goes through our gas tanks.   See New York Times.  Discuss on OurMontville blog.            Hat tip:  Dennis
