A quote from my 2-26-2001 gold-eagle.com essay called "A Dangerous Spring"- "I've often said the legacy of the child king would be war and depression." Now then, as we deploy tens of thousands of combat troops into Central Asia, send...
Thus spoke the crucified Messiah nailed to a Roman cross on a bleak Judean hill many centuries ago; thus say I regarding the events of September 11, 2001. Let no reasonable person have any illusions. Let no person anywhere on the planet...
