By any measure, ISIS is now a near-term threat to the US.

re: The main villain for season three of Arrow - NWHoustonTiger
Very cool. The Arrow producer's comments seem to indicate that Arrow could use Ras because he would not feature into the "Batfleck" universe. I think one could infer that DC will at least keep their film and TV universes separate - i.e. characters who appear in the Justice League film universe won't...

re: Elizabeth Warren's 11 Commandments of Progressivism - NWHoustonTiger
In a sense, I would like to see Warren as the Democratic nominee in 2016. Warren, more so than Hillary Clinton, would shift the election's focus from personality/biography to ideology (even though she, like Hillary, would be vying to be the first female US President). We really haven't had an ideolo...

[quote]So WTF do you want and think the U.S. should do? [/quote] Well, gee, I guess we should follow the advice of all you Paulistas and "non-interventionists" and basically do nothing. It's none of our business anyways. Historically, the US has been every bit the warmonger that Russia has been, so...

How the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 Situation Plays Out - NWHoustonTiger
President Obama will continue to insist on a "full investigation" and push back on any criticism by stating "we can't act until we have all the facts." The investigation (whatever shape it takes) will get drawn out because access to the evidence (that hasn't already been destroyed) will be withheld...

re: MH17 & Putin - What If? - NWHoustonTiger
If this incident had happened in a vacuum, I would not advocate for the 5 points I outlined in my original post, which I agree can and should be interpreted as "provocative." However, ever since the Russian invasion of Georgia, the US and Europe have treated Russia with kit gloves. Putin has inter...

There’s no way Obama even does anything close to this, but I would demand the following of Putin: 1. Putin must come clean immediately about the incident. 2.

re: Russia or Ukraine shoots down Malaysia Airlines plane carrying 295 - NWHoustonTiger
So it sounds like we can get a fix on the area from where the missile was launched. How difficult will it be to actually track down the mobile launcher? Presumably our satellites and/or surveillance drones are scouring that area. There's no way (that I can see, at least) they would be able to mov...

re: APNewsBreak: No 'stand down' order in Benghazi - NWHoustonTiger
Unless someone can show otherwise, it seems that President Obama largely kept his usual schedule and retired to his residence sometime that evening. The next day he woke up at his usual time and flew off to Vegas for a fundraiser. About all we know is that he had a meeting around 5pm with Gen. Dem...
