The USS Pueblo was probably the most colossal foreign policy blunders of the 20th century, followed closely by the horros of the USS Liberty. Was is most troubling is that neither guilty party, i.e., North Korea or Israel, has been properly punished for their respective crimes.

How ironic that every foreign policy move, and many interior moves, that Israel makes is in fact driven by what happened to them in the past. The tragedy of the Holocaust forms the underpinnings of practically every decision the Israeli government makes. Perhaps it should be so. And perhaps we should be more mindful of our own blunders in how we deal with our adversaries and our alleged allies.
One Big Ass Mistake, America

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."
