I am currently reading the novel Shackled by Achmed Abdullah, which was the nom de plume of Alexander Nicholayevitch Romanoff, who was quite a character himself. The novel was published in 1924. I was struck by the contemporary echoes in one passage. When I read it to my wife over breakfast, she said, "You should post that on the Daily Paul." So here it is (appropriately in the off-topic forum). Italics are in the original.
This was a pretty great video explaining Ron Paul's foreign policy! This guy did a good job explaining what Ron Paul would do and why he thinks it will work!
Apparently these videos are made by Molotov Mitchell and there are more. http://www.wnd.com/index.php/index.php/?pageId=43&authorId=2... I think they are pretty awesome from what Ive seen!
Wired article on current thinking in law enforcement regarding Islam. Has the 'war on terror' become institutionalized and dumbed down, removing the distinction 'radical' from 'radical Islam'?

A few weeks away from the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Texas Rep. Ron Paul said that U.S. intervention in the Middle East is a main motivation behind terrorists actions, and that Islam is not a threat to the nation.
At a campaign stop in Winterset, one man asked Paul how terrorist groups would react if the U.S. removed its military presence in Middle Eastern nations, a move the candidate advocates.
“Which enemy are you worried that will attack our national security?” Paul asked.
