So Why Are We Still Asking It?
With the tenth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq approaching, a predictable stream of commentary and events asking the familiar question of whether the war was 'worth it' is beginning to arise. This trend has so far included a planned debate at Goldsmiths, University of London featuring prominent pro and anti-war commentators like Mehdi Hasan and David Aaronovitch; a conference hosted by the anti-war activist group 'Stop the War Coalition'; and a few articles in the Huffington Post and the Sunday Sun.

Since the "Arab Spring" came to Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood assumed power, sexual harassment, abuse, and rape of women has skyrocketed. This graph, which shows an enormous jump in sexual harassment beginning around January 2011, when the Tahrir revolts began, certainly demonstrates as much. Its findings are further supported by any number of reports appearing in both Arabic and Western media, and from both Egyptian and foreign women.

ISRAEL – January 16, 2013 -- A-little-noticed Reuters item published January
10 reported that Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of the Palestinian Authority, has
rejected a conditional Israeli offer to let Palestinian refugees in war-torn
Syria resettle in the West Bank and Gaza, because it would compromise their
"right of return" to homes in Israel lost during the 1948 War.

LONDON, ENGLAND -- July 23, 2012 -- The British Broadcasting Company’s Olympic website purposely omitted Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The Israeli page of the 2012 Olympic website states, “Seat of government Jerusalem, though most foreign embassies are in Tel Aviv.” Furthermore, the website lists “East Jerusalem” as the “Intended seat of government” of “Palestine,” even though there is no nation recognized as “Palestine.”

RYE, NY and WHITE PLAINS, NY -- Imagine a $2 to $5 million hemorrhage annually. Is it an anomaly or does government perpetuate the failure despite the outcry for prudence and fiscal responsibility? Imagine further that the $2 million plus burden is meant to degrade support for the entity as it is perceived to be burdened every year with accumulating debt that impacts Westchester County government as other financial concerns regress and repress the ability for the County to surmount its financial woes. As one contemplates the conundrum between promise and the growing financial hardships it exacerbates throughout the County overall, one must wonder why this financial burden cannot be cajoled from deficit to profit through commitment to its initial promise, followed by scrutiny to its present plight, and the subsequent plans to right the wrongs. This professed financial burden is made believable by make believe numerical entries in ledgers that do not reveal the hemorrhage. The intention for this “game” has many fathers. At this point it matters little who sired this alleged con. What matters now is whether Playland Amusement Park is suffering a contrived deficit or if it is in reality profitable. This telling will show that Playland is simply eviscerated by greed and design. Profit is being covered up.
