    Is communism making a comeback? On its face, the question seems more than a little absurd. The Berlin Wall came down over 24 years ago. We are more than 22 years removed from the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. All that remains are the Stalinist museum pieces of North Korea and Cuba, the former an isolated country known mainly for its absurd dictator and starving population, the latter a beautiful island stuck in a 1950s time warp due to backwards economic and social policies. Even China, the one major power still ruled by...

    PHNOM PENH - Cambodian-born filmmaker Rithy Panh has built a career out of documenting life in post-Khmer Rouge Cambodia. His topics may be set well after the killings, but they always seem to be playing out in the shadows of history, with one eye on the past and one in the present. His film Site 2 explores the lives of a Cambodian family of refugees who fled the Khmer Rouge's terror to the relative safety of a border camp in Thailand. In The Land of the Wandering Souls, development clashes with buried secrets when laborers working on a project to...

    Vice President Joe Biden, while addressing representatives of gun safety and gun violence victims' groups, says President Obama could use "executive orders" to enact gun control measures. VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: "The president is going to act. There are executives orders -- executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the Attorney General and all the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action, we believe is required."

    The most striking proof that the Arab anti-Israel cause is a common meeting ground for both Nazis and Communists --and that the Arabs welcomed supporters of both ilks-- lies in the friendship of Carlos, the notorious master terrorist who served the PLO, with Fran*ois Genoud, an old Nazi, one of the leading Nazis in pre-War Switzerland, later a financier who provided funds for Habash's faction of the PLO. "Carlos" (his nom de guerre) was what is called a "red diaper baby." His fabulously rich father, a Venezuelan lawyer and owner of estates, gave "Carlos" the name Ilich, Lenin's patronymic, as...

    The FRC shooting is the latest chapter in the blood-drenched history of the left — from the French Revolution to Occupy Wall Street. This is the way the left does business — with guillotines, gulags and gas chambers, with bombs, bullets, purges, planned famines and demonizing opponents as a prelude to their slaughter. In 2009, James Pouillon was shot to death while holding a pro-life sign by a supporter of choice. The same year, black Tea Party activist Kenneth Glandney was beaten so badly by SEIU thugs that he had to be hospitalized. In 2010, heavily armed eco-terrorist James J....

Andrew Cayley said that like Pol Pot, the three aging former members of the regime now on trial exercised life-and-death authority over Cambodia while in power in 1975-79. “The accused cannot credibly claim they did not know and had no control over the crimes that occurred”...

"Be very careful, indeed, with your call for the redistribution of wealth, and fairness," he said. "It always ends up with a mountain of skulls." Noting that communism cost an estimated 100 million lives in the last century, he reminded his listeners of the dark saga in Southeast Asia in the 1970s that began with a "nice, mild-mannered professor" going to Paris to study Marxism.

    Starting in 1975, Pol Pot and his Communist revolutionaries killed almost 2,000,000 Cambodians, out of a total population of 5,000,000. Why?? Pol Pot lived in Paris for many years where he became a Marxist intellectual. Sitting in classrooms and cafes, he visualized the perfect Cambodia. He went back to Cambodia to eliminate foreign influences, purge educated people, and thereby create an agrarian workers paradise. Pol Pot was a fanatic, a true believer. The best one-word summary is to say that Pol Pot was an ideologue. He had ideas in his head; he knew they were right; and he was thereby...

Kaing Guek Eav (pronounced "Gang Geck Ee-uu"), better known as Duch ("Doik"), told the U.N.-backed genocide tribunal he wanted to apologize for his actions under the Khmer Rouge, whose radical policies while in power from 1975 to 1979 left an estimated 1.7 million Cambodians dead.

    With the Dow Jones dropping below 7000 for the first time since 1997 it would seem to me that it is time for the president to recognize that investors do NOT like the bailout, the stimulus package or his projected budget and neither do the American people.

The Khmer Rouge ruled Cambodia from 1975 to 1979, and, under Pol Pot, a Marxist leader, and the support of China, the Khmer Rouge forced millions of people to work on communal farms, and ultimately contributed to families dying of starvation, overwork and disease — not to mention execution. Nearly all of Cambodia’s lawyers, doctors, artists and intellectuals were killed. Most...

We only have to look at history. When we cut and ran out of Vietnam it resulted in the death of millions of Vietnamese, Cambodians, and Laotians. While the “peaceniks” and leftists in this country were celebrating our capitulation, Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia and ruled with an iron fist. They slaughtered millions of men, women, and children. More died after the we...

    Pol Pot was the leader of the Khmer Rouge, the Communist Party that ruled Cambodia from 1976-1979. "Khmer Rouge" (or Khmer Reds) was the French rendering of the organization’s official name: the "Communist Party of Cambodia," later the "Party of Democratic Kampuchea" and also the "Communist Party of Kampuchea," or CPK. (Kampuchea is the local name for Cambodia.) Pol Pot was born Saloth Sar in what is now the province of Kompong Thong, Cambodia in 1925. He came from a prosperous farming family that in 1931 moved to the capital, Phnom Penh, where the young Pol Pot learned some of...
  • Gitmo - if I were a judge - (Dick Durbin should receive a specific sentence for defaming troops!)

    If I were a judge, I would sentence Durbin and his fellow travelers and comrades in the Gitmo Flat Earth Society to: Endless hours of sleep-deprived filibustering watching continued reruns of documented terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon and their murder of thousands; the beheadings of journalist Daniel Pearl, Nicolas Berg and others; the films of Uday and Qusay, Saddam Hussein's sons, depicting the systematic torture and murder of hundreds of Iraqis; Hitler's concentration camps in Germany and the starvation, gassing, burning of millions of Jews; the carnage of Pol Pot's systematic fratricide of 2 to 3...

    Some Republicans don't think it's too early at all to start zeroing in on Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). He'll be running for re-election in 2008 but he made a mistake last month that could be fatal. By comparing U.S. servicemen who run Gitmo to those who guarded the prison camps in Nazi Germany, the gulags in the USSR and the extermination centers in Cambodia under Pol Pot, the East St. Louis-born liberal hustler handed his opponents a battery of weapons to use against him. At least five anti-Durbin TV commercials come to mind. First, the tape of Durbin's outlandish attack...

    So Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois thinks our Guantanamo soldiers are like the Nazis? As a soldier stationed in Germany, the land where Hitler's Nazis once trod, I found my blood boiling by the words coming from the liberal Democratic senator from Illinois. Senator Durbin, along with the rest of his left wing and terrorist sympathizing party thinks President Bush should close the Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, because--in his words--the soldiers at Gitmo are "acting like Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, Pol Pot, or others who had no concern for human beings." Two things here: Where is the outcry...
  • Torture at Gitmo? Ask the Mau Mau - (Max Boot at LA Times gets it!)

    By now it hardly needs saying that, contrary to the animadversions of Dick Durbin and Amnesty International, Guantanamo Bay bears no resemblance to Nazi concentration camps, Soviet gulags or Khmer Rouge killing fields. Millions of people were murdered in those places. The sum total of those killed at Gitmo is … zero. But perhaps the critics of U.S. detention practices are correct in saying that this is damning with faint praise. Who wouldn't expect the "land of the free" to behave better than the most monstrous regimes in history? So let's use a better comparison. Look at how the United...

    Okay, a quick show of hands. How many of you bought that “apology” from Dick Durbin? Which one, you ask? Well, let’s forget about the one where he blamed America for not being smart enough to understand his “nuance.” That was pretty much an insult to everyone’s intelligence. For that matter, so was the real apology, where he was sorry for potentially being “misunderstood” by the great unwashed. (That’s us, in case you’re curious). Now, I’m quite sure that all of you heard about Durbin’s little snit on the Senate floor, where he compared Gitmo to the worst depredations of...

    Karl Rove proved a very salient point last week in his speech to the Conservative Party of New York. The media's reflexes still work. After most in the "news" media spent a week steadfastly ignoring Sen. Richard Durbin's (D-Ill.) hideous statement comparing U.S. detainees to the killing fields of Pol Pot, Rove said liberals were weak on terrorism, and zoom! Rove's remarks rocketed to the front page and with that, the top of the political buzz. The New York Times set the table by quoting only a few sentences in which Rove explained that conservatives saw Sept. 11 and knew...

    Illinois Senator Richard J. Durbin – the minority Whip and second most powerful Democrat in the United States Senate – has now joined other Democrat apologists who think (and hope) that Americans will forget what he said last week when he compared the U.S. military's treatment of al-Qaida enemy combatants in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the treatment doled out by mass-murderers Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot, whose regimes in Germany, Russia and Cambodia, respectively, wantonly slaughtered tens of millions of innocent people. For the record, approximately nine million people, including six million Jews, died in Hitler's concentration camps; nearly three...

    Mugabe Pledges Building Plan, Scorns Western 'demonization'By Michael Hartnack Associated Press Writer Published: Jun 25, 2005 HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP)- Hundreds of homes have been built in Zimbabwe's capital to replace some of the thousands destroyed in a widely criticized official "cleanup" campaign, the government said Saturday ahead of a planned visit by a United Nations envoy. President Robert Mugabe earlier scorned Western "demonization" of his five-week program called Operation Murambatsvina, or "Drive Out Trash," which has left between 200,000 and 1.5 million Zimbabweans without homes or livelihoods. Saturday's announcement followed the condemnation by 10 U.N. human rights experts of the...

    A Miltary Father’s Response to Senator Durbin’s Apology I penned a short essay about the remarks Senator Durbin made on the Senate floor comparing our troops and detention center in Guantanamo Bay to Nazi death camps, Soviet Gulags, and Pol Pot’s “killing fields.” I feel honor-bound to take issue with this non-apology apology on several grounds. #1) The Senator actually believes that the US is no better than the Nazi’s, Soviet’s or Pol Pot. It doesn’t take a week to decide that you’ve been misinformed and apologize. The Senator KNEW that this was a lie when he spoke it. He...
