Re: Obama's Left "Humanitarian" War.

Obama isn't the problem, imo. He may not be the solution, but there are worse politicians, as we have seen in more recent decades.

Re: Japan Earthquake and Tsunami

I am afraid that money does not help much. It is not that Japan lacks money. They have almost trillion dollar reserves. They need food, blankets, medicine and fuel. Money is not the bottleneck. Aid agencies need money. They will be able to respond with more agility and more rationally with ample fu...

This kind of pressure is something no one needs at the moment (or at any other moment). I'd think Buddhist org...

Re: Japan Earthquake and Tsunami

I'm due back in Tokyo on the 24th, but if those two plants meltdown, then all that radioactive material in the atmosphere might have me postpone my return back home.

Yes, probably, but the number of missing remains uncertain, and some of the "missing" will of course be found alive -- a few at least. Added to all this misery is the ongoing nuclear crisis at ...
