For Many Syrians the Nightmare Continues
Many people do not realize this, but in 1982 the Syrian military cracked down on their citizens to stop the Muslim Brotherhood rebellion, at least 10,000 people were killed, but the estimates range from 20,000 to 40,000.

While everyone is worried about Tom Clancy’s “Sum of All Fears” or nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists, perhaps we ought to consider the problems of WMD. Anyone who has ever read any of Bill Gertz’s books or has an ear to the railroad track in the intelligence community knows that Hezbollah has re-loaded and has 10s of thousands of rockets, and some advanced missiles ready for their next attack on Israel.

There is a lot going on when it comes to the airline industry, and all the rules and regulations which are placed upon it. While it is true that the Federal Aviation Administration, and their counterpart in the European Union have made air travel much safer, and we hardly hear of an accident these days, all these regulations are causing quite a bit of friction in the industry, and it is now affecting the traveler.
