Barack Obama, Dick Cheney, and Privatized War
Taki's Magazine 
Sixty-six years ago this month, the American and Free French forces landed in southern France to liberate this half of the country, link up with General Eisenhower in the north and drive the Germans back to Berlin. After the US Seventh Army landed at Saint Tropez and nearby beaches, it famously fought its way "from the Riviera to the Rhine."...

Counterpoint: Land and Sovereignty
The New York Times 
In the elegant and incisive style that characterizes all of his writing, James Carroll set out in these pages ("The wandering Jew and the mad Saracen," Views, Aug. 12) the theological genesis of the dispute in Israel-Palestine.

Norman is usually right, but he is also usually a lonely prophet in the wilderness, ignored and scorned by kings...

Under Siege: On Emma Williams
Taki's Magazine 
In October 2000 most of the children invited by Dr. Emma Williams to her son Archie's seventh birthday party failed to turn up. Distance was not the issue, given that her house was only twenty minutes from the French lycée where her two boys were studying. The problem was location. In Jerusalem, living anywhere is a political statement with safety...

Catalonia Bullfighting Ban: Purely Political and Totally Impractical
Taki's Magazine 
At the end of the film Little Caesar, the gangster Enrico Bandello, played by Edward G. Robinson, is shot down by the police. As he dies in the gutter, he asks, "Mother of mercy, is this the end of Rico?" Reading that the Catalan provincial assembly decided last Wednesday to shoot itself in both feet, as well as gore itself...
