The war on terror is not over with the dead of OBL as Obama wants people to believe. It might sound good, but recently there are more acts of terrorism, and radicalism; especially in Muslim world are rising. It is naive and self serving without any regard to the future of the world civilization. Like it or not, the world has Islam problem to deal with in years to come. War is a terrible thing, and it does not mean accepting the choice of conversion or dead. Freedom loving people must be on guard to preserve the progress of civilization of humanity, by not going back to the dark age. The reality is that by scrapping or not the act of war on terror, America is still engages with all these treats in same manner. Politically, it seems Obama is trying to reflect a big fiasco in DC that is boiling everyday. Wake up and stop dreaming. Cheers.

In other words, after watering down terrorism in Benghazi, Boston' bombing, AQ is very much alive, all the fiasco in DC by Obama team; it is time to paint his blue sky again. Obama's credibility is at stake in the eyes of the world (except his disciples who were sold by liberal media over the years), therefore counter terrorism is the button to push now.

Communist China scholars are the puppets of China politics. Apparently, they know little of world history including Tibet, Uighur autonomous region, and most parts of the world like Caribbeans, Australia, New Zealand that are much parts of developing history after the area of colonialism and annexation progress. Moreover, China empire was not born overnight, the territory grabbing is China history in itself. The Nazi rise to power and failed the attempt to dominate the world, so do China which has nothing much to offer the world. Instead Communist China should focus on raising the standard of living for a better civilize China in 21th century. China would gain respect by doing good deeds, and not by way of exploitation; since the world population are not like Chinese. What a shame...

Beyond statistic, The IRS itself acknowledged the grave mistake (crime!) and sent the apology letters to the victims of this intimidation. Allegedly speaking, the white house council knew of these activities since 2010 before Obama reelection. He or she should inform the president of this potential criminal act. Otherwise, it seemed like an intentional orchestrated attacks on selected group of Americans for certain political agenda. Why the IRS chief as the manager did not know who did it? hiding anything?...Well, no more stone walling and get to the bottom of this that it will not happen again regardless any political affiliation. If crime committed, criminal(s) should go to to jail according to the law.

Russia is in the business to keep American busy with M.E. for their own advantage. Look at the way Putin won the election and runs his government would explain all about their viciousness, and do not count too much about peace accord with Japan soon. What happen to team Obama, especially JOHN kERRY (Juan Kerry in French)? Well, it is all about lip service, isn't it?

Someone or few who gave the order for the foot soldiers to carry on. They disregard the law and abusing it for their political agenda. It is just the beginning, for finally team Obama seem to have a case of root canal in front of the press. All these events are serious violation of American value. More to com folks... when there is smoke, there might be fire!

Why now ? Even the Washington Post gave Obama 4 Pinocchio and a liberal commentator called "Obama lies on Benghazi". The resignation of IRS appointee is just the beginning, since who is behind all these, including the DOJ's fiasco on their friendly AP scandal. Direct or indirect, there is someone or a group of people who orchestrated these acts for their political advantages. They violate the law, not telling the truth and abuse the American peoples in daylight! The cockiness and arrogant of team Obama maybe finally face the crisis of their own makings. Well, the anointed one is so sleek, since there are plenty who took the blames on his behalf and many bots who find no problems at all ???

Thank you. The correction should be "Cheech and Chong" the duo icon of illegal smokes. Indeed, Obama and Holder are both familiar with these characters and perfect fit for the remake of the movie. However, this time they control the FBI and interpret the law according to their mandate. Sen. Orin Hatch said that the acting IRS mislead him on this issue. To be continue....

Using IRS to target your opposition (enemy) is against the law, like hitting below the belt and very low. Obama and Holder are very close like "Chic and Chung", thus hoping there will be no stonewalling since they both seemed to jump on this one very fast than usual? Who is the source of this law breaking? A low ranking IRS official, Come on?
Bgood41May. 15, 2013 - 10:52AM JST
During interviewed with CBS if it was a terrorist act, candidate Obama said "we don't know yet...", and now he re twisted by saying that it was terrorism act from the beginning? Regarding IRS fiasco, the white house knew months ago, and now said that it just learned from the press. The DOJ either crossed the line or abusing the power on AP story. All these are obvious signs of cockiness and arrogant on behalf of team Obama since they have mandate and the media is on their side. Obama and Holder is like "Chic and Chong" since both pairs are close and have much in common. Obama and AP are like air and gas creating fire at will, until the the air is too strong over thus preventing the gas from igniting any fire at all. What a friend, AP has in team Obama! His credibility is at stake in front of the eyes of the world. When the body is smelling, allegedly speaking; the head is the main cause of all these. Americans should not be like Chinese or N.Koreans to be manipulated by their leaders for own political gain. Let's get to the bottom without "stonewalling" on these problems, for real American value.

It is outrageous and Un-American regardless any political affiliation. Now, since Obama acknowledged it, let's see the action to follow his words; and it should not play delaying tactic to buy time for watering down the real issue. IRS head is a political appointee by executive branch. It started in 2010 and should not be just a low rank IRS officials who will be the scapegoat at this time. The credibility of this administration is at stake from Benghazi to this abusing of IRS power. Who is actually initiated and responsible for all these? Real men will stand up, are they?

What a shame that Obama & Co. use most Americans as a pawn for owns political gain. A few used the word "Benghazi gate" after the news broke out and even before Susan Rice opened her mouth on this issue, and they were attacked; that is another shame. Even Maureen Dowd of New York Times, the queen of liberal calls on Obama as unworthy for greatest power on earth to behave in such manner. Really, are most Americans easy to manipulate as Chinese and N.Koreans? Ultimately, who is responsible for this fiasco, Obama and Hillary?

How many trillion of dollars will be needed to fix this problem, and will it solve the problem one and for all ? It is a very complex and regional integrated issues for U.S. to bear the burden. How about learning from Japan of this issue, and by modifying the law to meet constitutional requirement? Well, there are too many special interest groups in D.C!

According to ancient history, neither Japan nor S.Korea are on the receiving end of air pollution from China. The best technology to relieve this problem is to stop polluting in the first place. Hello, may the great wall of China and great minds of communism stand up to this problem? Once, the ancient text of China stated that "doing good thing for neighbor beyond just your interest, is the virtue". So, start to clean up the air and then talk.

Tune in, for more things to come. A few months ago, a Pakistani planned to blow up Times square was spoiled and arrested. A few guys in Canada also were arrested for planning to blow up a train across Niagara Falls. Are these guys acting alone? Come on, you can reasoning better than that. (Check the meaning of "caliphate").

Hate to say that oil is an essential to world economy, especially Japan. However, in most cases certain percentage of oil money goes to support the misery in Middle East and even radical Islamic terrorism across the globe. The sooner is better if the world can find the alternative to oil.

The best place for such talk is China under strict dictatorial control of communist machine, where the mass always being manipulated by the state. In other places, peoples have better information and freedom of surfing and speech, such as searching on "Tibet" or " leadership corruption" without fear of reprisal from government. Freedom worth more than money. Well, let's speak Chinese" It is a matter of internal policy"! It seemed he put his foot in his mouth.

Sharia law was initiated by the Wahabi Muslim sect in Saudi Arabia as they claim the full authority of its meaning. The law and the way of life in Saudi are very much reflected of Sharia law. Same token, to better understand Islam, is to look at the life of Mohammed, including the wars, the conquer, sex and marriages, women status, politics and religions......in scholarly way that enable us to deal with the expansion of Islam into the world. Most politicians and the mass in general have no clue of Islam and thus proclaiming and dreaming of peace as was intended by the liberal media who view Islam as the victim of open minded powerful democracy countries. Sharia & human right, equality, freedom....??????

Ghost money is nothing new throughout history of war times,but two blind mice are not meant for all mice to be blinded. To blame GB for this is very senseless shallow aiming at the wrong target. Karzai's corrupted status has been known for years, but Obama, under his watch provided this gift to Afghanistan. Well, Obama has gift for America too, biggest deficit increase ever that might rob future generation.

Obama, the tent folder in chief decided to defeat Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, and this ghost money to the corrupted one should not happen under his watch; the anointed one. What happen? Karzai starts acting tough as he learns from the Iraqi government in dealing with Obama. Enticing and bribery the corrupted powerful officials only lead to more corruption, since they never have enough. The world is full of these kind of peoples who abusing the mass for themselves. What a shame.
