Commentary: AIPAC and liege fealty

WASHINGTON, June 6 (UPI) -- AIPAC’s organizers expected an uncertain trumpet for its annual convention in the nation’s capital. American Jews were worried Barack Obama would stake out a neutral stance that would begin to detach Israel from the United States.

Commentary: Rainbow -- or Guns of August?

WASHINGTON, June 3 (UPI) -- Iran’s president renews his death threats against Israel -- but finds himself in hot water at home. His would-be successor speaks softly, but can he change the mullahs’ nuclear ambitions? The Israelis don’t think so.

Commentary: Tower of Babble Rabble

WASHINGTON, May 30 (UPI) -- Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan wrote a blistering memoir in which he accused President Bush of misleading the nation into an unnecessary war in Iraq. But what he had to say is precisely what a large part of the foreign policy establishment, including so-called moderate Republicans, concluded five years ago.

Commentary: Connecting slippery dots

WASHINGTON, May 27 (UPI) -- Franklin D. Roosevelt’s bogeyman was Big Business. Ronald Reagan’s was Big Labor. And the next president's is almost bound to be Big Finance. A paradigm shift from unfettered to fettered democratic capitalism is in the making.

Commentary: Iran's pawns move

WASHINGTON, May 13 (UPI) -- With Lebanon on the verge of becoming a full-fledged Iranian satellite state, President Bush has presumably concluded that to pressure Israel into meaningful concessions to the Palestinians at this juncture would precipitate the very events he seeks to avoid.

Commentary: Wilderness of mirrors

WASHINGTON, April 30 (UPI) -- "Every lie contains a truth and every truth contains a lie" is a safe rule of thumb when Shakespeare's powers of observation are applied to the Middle East. With each shake of the kaleidoscope, the configuration of the key players becomes a wilderness of mirrors.

Commentary: Puncturing Mideast myths

WASHINGTON, April 16 (UPI) -- To paraphrase Winston Churchill on the Battle of Britain: Never in the field of Middle Eastern reporting was so much owed by so many to so few. In fact, to one man.

Commentary: 92 years to go

WASHINGTON, April 14 (UPI) -- We are beginning to use words, phrases and assertions without any regard to their meaning. The predicate "Islamist extremism is the defining characteristic of the 21st century" ignores we are now in year eight of this century -- with 92 more years to go. No one can possibly know what will define our century over the next nine decades.

Commentary: Boom to bust

WASHINGTON, April 3 (UPI) -- Borrowing $2 billion to $3 billion a day from other countries to maintain the world's highest standard of living, based on conspicuous consumption, in an age of growing world shortages, while fighting two wars whose costs will soon ring up a $1 trillion tab, is tantamount to living on borrowed time.

UPI's Editor-In-Chief Arnaud de Borchgrave (L) meets with Filipino President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in Manila Ocotber 15, 2003. Macapagal-Arroyo said Wednesday it was "critical" for U.S. President George W. Bush to understand "how closely related the war on terrorism is to the war on poverty."
