by Victor Davis Hansonvia Fox News
Thursday, November 21, 2019

Humans Can Survive Underwater

by Bjorn Lomborgvia Project Syndicate
Thursday, November 21, 2019

Alarming media stories that twist the facts about rising sea levels are dangerous because they scare people unnecessarily and push policymakers toward excessively expensive measures to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.

Montgomery County Talks A Good Game On “Equity.” Now It Has A Chance To Walk It, Too.

by Michael J. Petrillivia The Washington Post
Wednesday, November 20, 2019

There’s been a lot of talk about racial equity in Montgomery County as of late.

Less than a year after Japan had attacked Pearl Harbor and proclaimed that all of Asia belonged to Emperor Hirohito, American successes in two naval battles permanently altered the course of the war. In the words of the Naval War College, the “operational initiative” lay with the American Navy.

by Michael J. Petrillivia The 74 Million
Thursday, November 21, 2019

The New York Times headline pointed to “decline.” Politico used the word “slump.” And the Associated Press went with “lags.” Any way you say it, the latest scores from the Nation’s Report Card were bad, with trends getting worse over time. In particular, America’s lowest-performing students, who also tend to be our lowest-income children, are faring particularly poorly, especially in eighth grade, and especially in reading, but pretty much all across the board.

quoting Raghuram Rajanvia The Manila Times
Wednesday, November 20, 2019

We greet with more than a sigh of relief the news that the economy, in terms of gross domestic product (GDP) grew by 6.2 percent in the third quarter of 2019, surprising experts who earlier braced for something less rosy after a relatively anemic 5.5 percent growth rate was recorded for the preceding quarter. Economic managers were quick to point out that a faster pace of government spending made the turnaround possible.

What to Do in Iraq: A Roundtable

by Larry Diamondvia Hoover Daily Report
Wednesday, June 14, 2006

In his trenchant analysis, Stephen Biddle ("Seeing Baghdad, Thinking Saigon," March/April 2006) argues that the escalating violence in Iraq is not a nationalist insurgency, as was the Vietnam War, but rather a "communal civil war" and that it must therefore be addressed by pursuing a strategy different from "Vietnamization": if the United States were simply to turn over responsibility for counterinsurgency to the new Iraqi army and police forces, it would risk inflaming the communal conflict, either by empowering the Shiites and the Kurds to slaughter the Sunnis or by enabling a Trojan horse full of Sunni insurgents to penetrate the multiethnic security forces and undermine them…
