Terror and Surprise on the Paris Express

anti_no_terrorists_flip_flops

By Austin Bay Terrorists rely on concealment in order to launch surprise attacks. Last week’s attempted attack on a high-speed train traveling from Holland to Paris via Belgium involved successful concealment, up to a point. At that point, the passengers surprised the terrorist. Islamist terrorist Ayoub El Khazzani managed to evade security agency surveillance in …

Heroism, American-Style

01

By Froma Harrop Every country has its heroes, but something in America’s cultural sauce makes for a unique and unusually effective variety. The ingredient would be improvisation — the ability to perform without preparation, using whatever is at hand to complete the task. As most of the world knows, Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos and Anthony …

An Iranian nuclear arms deal?

By Austin Bay Arms controllers hailed the post-World War 1 Washington Naval Arms Treaty as the diplomatic instrument to prevent another peace-destroying naval arms race. Yet it came to pass that war erupted, with the warships of signatories Britain, France and the U.S. battling treaty partners Italy and Japan. Counting battleships is several quanta easier …

High anxiety: Had your dose of peace today?

Anxiety seems to grip our society these days. September 11 brought fears of flying and of the mail. Airlines heighten security and try to attract passengers with low fares and bonus frequent flyer miles. Homeland security alerts heighten tensions. Should we worry about this bridge, that building or tonight’s sporting event? A necessary war with …

Rep. Gohmert wins nincompoop roundup

My state of Texas seems to have an inordinate share of nincompoops in public office. But it’s only fair that office holders from other states be considered before deciding which one is the nincompoopiest of all. Give credit to Pennsylvania, for example, whose GOP governor, Tom Corbett, recently scored big nincompoop points by explaining why …

The baby-faced bomber

Sometimes a picture speaks volumes. Sometimes it’s outright deceptive. The picture of “Bomber No. 2” didn’t look a bit like a mass murderer. A sweet-faced college kid, the former lifeguard, the nice young man described by classmates and friends. It couldn’t be. There must be some outside organization calling the shots.

Let's lace up and keep running: We can’t close down the world and huddle in our houses after the Boston Marathon attack.

I started running about four years ago to lose weight. At first I hated it. My lungs burned and my head hurt and every footstep felt like sledge hammers pounding on my calves. I persisted out of stubbornness. I’d bought a good pair of shoes and I didn’t want to waste them. A few months …
