Real Clear World Posts

By Rich Kozlovich

This list is from the web site Real Clear World.  As you go through these you will find that all persuasions are represented here, many of them I find ....well.... dumb, however, that is what this site provides. It really is necessary to read all sides of any issue if one is to understand the historicity. Everyone leaves stuff out of their commentaries. Sometimes it is due to space, or it may be to inclination; as in the inclination to paint their view in the best possible light irrespective of what is factual. As you go through those links you are interested in you will find that many of these commentaries are long and drawn out, and a bit difficult to take.  However they are at least worth scanning.  The one thing you will come away with is that the world is insane and its the lunatics who are running the asylum.  But remember.....there is no such thing as a conspiracy!

The first four links are commentaries that I think are worth exploring.  The rest have been broken down by geography  and time of publication.  Some I have eliminated because organizing this many days of links became too difficult.  In future days there will be less links organized in the same manner.  And the answer to your question is; no I haven't read them all.  I have however scanned a large number of them, especially those dealing with China.  I have linked all of these to accommodate the tastes of my readers.

Enjoy!
