As CompleteColo- noted, Stryk- er donated personally to Markey’s campaign, and Abound ran ads thanking Markey for her eco-radical voting record. Like Solyn- dra chief investor George Kaiser, Stryker has visited the White House on more than one occasion. Like Kaiser, Stryker is a top

fused to tell House law- makers and the public how many more DOE solar boondoggles are at risk of going under. He couldn’t “recall the exact number.” Funny how fraudulently exact they can be in cook- ing up jobs numbers, but how chronically amnesiac they are when it all blows up. Hope-a-nomics: It’s ev-

SOWELL from 7

Obama said, except that an election year might not be the best time to attack Israel?

Members of the Obama administration have been pointing out how hard it would be to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities, now that they have been built deep underground and dispersed. That would have been

something to consider during the time when President Obama was tak- ing leisurely and half- hearted measures to cre- ate the appearance of trying to stop the Iranian nuclear program, while vigorously warning Israel not to take military ac- tion.

Time was never on our

side. The risks go up ex- ponentially the longer we wait. When the Iranian nuclear program was just getting started, it could have been destroyed be- fore it became so big, so dispersed and so deeply dug in underground. Now, if we wait till they actually have nuclear bombs, the same kinds of arguments for inaction will carry even more weight, when the price of an attack on Iran can be the start of a nu- clear Holocaust. Nor should we assume

t is true to say, Miss Elle, Ellie Elle to her friends, is a

bit of a prima donna! She was most displeased upon arrival having been surrendered by an owner that couldn’t keep her and her housemate anymore. Elle was not happy about living at the shelter and she decided she didn’t like any of the staff who were trying to care for her. So, we tried her in her own personal space, not sequestered in a cage and she did better. She likes to oversee meetings, and participates in volunteer classes and staff meetings. Slowly, over time, living in the a dmini s t r a t i v e offices, she has decided that the shelter isn’t quite so bad a place to be, she gets attention all day long, she talks to staff and volunteers, she is tolerant of dogs and other cats that might be in her area. It’s true she is a very large black cat. We are monitoring her rotundity and helping her

that we can remain safe by throwing Israel to the wolves, once the election is over, as might well hap- pen if Obama is re-elected and no longer has any po- litical reasons to pretend to be Israel’s friend. That kind of cynical miscalculation was made by France back in 1938, when it threw its ally, Czechoslovakia, to the wolves by refusing to de- fend it against Hitler’s demands, despite the mu- tual defense treaty be- tween the two countries. Less than two years later, Hitler’s armies were in- vading France -- using, among other things, tanks manufactured in Czecho- slovakia. This was just one of the

expedient miscalculations that helped bring on the bloodiest and most de- structive war the world has ever known. Dare we repeat such miscalcula- tions in a nuclear age? At the end of the Sec-

ond World War, Winston Churchill said, “There never was in all history a war easier to prevent by timely action than the one which has just desolated such great areas of the globe.” It might even have been prevented “without the firing of a single shot,” Churchill said. Early in Hitler’s career

as dictator of Germany, the Western powers -- indeed, France alone -- had such overwhelming

military superiority that an ultimatum to Hitler to stop rearming would have left him little choice but to comply. But the price of stopping him went up as time went by and he kept on rearming. When Hitler sent troops

into the Rhineland in 1936, in defiance of two international treaties, he knew that Germany at that point had noth- ing that would stop the French army if it moved in. But France was too cautious to act -- and cau- tion can be carried to the point where it becomes dangerous, as France dis- covered when a stronger Germany conquered it in 1940. Churchill warned, “Do

not let us take the course of allowing events to drift along until it is too late.” But that is what expedien- cy-minded politicians are always tempted to do.
