Opinion: The Growing Cost of the Third Iraq War

As of Sept. 10, the Third Iraq War is now official. While some debate whether we should call it a war, a campaign or a sustained operation, a set of clear national objectives has now been articulated by President Barack Obama and the number of U.S. airstrikes are escalating daily.

The Fight Against ISIS, an Enemy Largely the U.S.'s Own Creation

The fight against radical terrorists is difficult enough but it gets far more problematic when it becomes evident that the enemies that you are fighting against are the same ones that you are largely responsible for having created. And, if that's not bad enough, it gets even worse when you realize that you have, unwittingly, furnished that enemy with weapons that you left behind when exiting Iraq in 2011.

ISIS Has Put Rand Paul In A Very Difficult Position

Sen. Rand Paul has emerged as a leading potential 2016 presidential candidate after years building a brand as a conservative with a libertarian bent who often breaks from his fellow Republicans to criticize foreign military action. However, the rise of the jihadist group Islamic State has left Paul scrambling to simultaneously express support for military action against the group while also trying to maintain his libertarian credentials and criticize President Barack Obama, who has launched strikes on ISIS.

Koch Oligarchs Reach Into American Museum Of Natural History And Smithsonian.

The Lords of Darkness that threaten Dick Cheney's claim of master of American evil, have stretched their slimy tentacles into a couple of Americas greatest scientific educational institutions.

History Channel docudrama ignores some big names

The History Channel suffered from some criticism a few years ago, being nicknamed "the Hitler Channel" because it seemed to focus on World War II history more than anything else. As of late, it's done better, but occasionally it goes back to its bread and butter, and that is the case with "The World Wars," a docudrama that covers several of the key figures that were first blooded in World War I and went on to determine the outcome of World War II.

Bush, Cheney, Palin Criticized 'The View's' New 'Conservative' Premier

Nicolle Wallace's introduction segment was filled with loud cackling laughter as Wallace told the story of Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shooting a hunting partner. But the strongest criticism was was aimed at former Gov. Sarah Palin , who co-host Whoopi Goldberg could not even say Palin's name without laughing as co-host Rosie Perez asked, "Can I have three specific questions? One, what was it like when you first met her? Two, did the winking get on your nerves? And three, when did you want to just pop her?" Rosie O'Donnell did not miss the opportunity to rip former President George W. Bush's "Katrina fly-by" being sure to point out Wallace was on her honeymoon at the time.

Gillibrand: I Couldn't Tell My Harasser 'To Go F*** Himself'

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said Monday that when a male labor leader harassed her about her weight several years ago after she'd had a baby, she had a few choice words she couldn't say at the time. "I've just had a baby, I've just been appointed [to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate], I have a lot to learn, so much on my plate, and this man basically says to me, 'You're too fat to be elected statewide,'" Gillibrand recalled on HuffPost Live Monday morning.

Bush/Cheney Created Conditions that Led Directly to ISIL

It takes a lot of gall for people like Dick Cheney to utter even one critical word about President Obama's strategy to eliminate the threat of ISIL in the Middle East. In fact, it was the unnecessary Bush/Cheney Iraq War that created the conditions that led directly to the rise of the "Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant" .

The Banking CrisisPLAYING the Fed

The corruption scandals, Troopergate, her musings on how to ban library books, the moose slaughter, the drill-baby-drill, the creationist stupidity, the pregnant underage daughter and the acceptance of statutory rape as a marriage-brokering tool, the bridge to nowhere and all the rest of it - including the story on the front page of the New York Times on Sunday about how she hired most of her junior high school yearbook to run her government - well, yes, Sarah Palin reeks. Meanwhile, the real danger of her candidacy has been ignored.
