President Barack Obama’s notorious – and likely ill-considered – “red line” comment has forced us into debating a military attack in yet another Middle East country. It appears the purpose of the attack is, first and foremost, to defend the president’s own credibility. An attack may have oth…
The images we saw last week are grotesque, disturbing, heartbreaking and might be just a preview of things to come.
"I speak … in a spirit of hope," said President John F. Kennedy, beginning a policy address to the nation on July 26, 1963. He went on to describe a major breakthrough in the Cold War. The new Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty with the Soviet Union would prohibit nuclear explosions in the atmosphere.
Iran and North Korea have as much right and as much reason to have nuclear weapons and long-range missiles as every other nation. It is a deterrent to aggression from the larger nations -- the United States, China, Russia and the others.
Last week, as my family sat around our Thanksgiving meal, we spoke about the normal things; how the week had gone at work and at school. Later, after progressing through national elections, our conversation led to international issues, in particular, Iran’s economy and political problems res…
INDIANAPOLIS | State Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon, D-Munster, has received the "Friend of Israel" award from the Jewish Federation of Northwest Indiana and the Israel Bonds Committee.

Jennifer Hernandez, Griffith | "It depends on whether there would be military action where civilians are injured. What would the alternative be? Now Iran's spiritual leader and our president aren't seeing eye to eye, and that's scary. Where does the power lie?"
DeJuan McDuell, Griffith | "Yes. The idea of having it would be a threat not only to Iran but the rest of the world."
Carlos Gomez, Hobart | "No. Every country has their own government and system. No way should one country stop another."
Nic Romano, Crown Point | "I think so. What's going to happen is going to happen. I believe in fate. If Israel decides to act and attack, then we should support them. The big man upstairs has a plan for us all."
We have seen this before. A Middle Eastern country with large oil reserves (not controlled by the western oil cartel) is being attacked as a dire threat to the United States. The corporate media are again presenting a one-sided picture of the situation, and the American public is being whipp…
