Rocket science: Ukraine firm may have helped N. Korean missiles

| | Aug 19 2017 - 12:06am | Comments

Ukraine is virtually an “anything goes” zone for American entrepreneurs — as well as for people like the North Koreans. That idea has been reinforced by news reports that a Ukrainian factory sold North Korea rocket engines for intercontinental ballistic missiles, which Pyongyang wants to arm with nuclear warheads so it can threaten the United States as well as peace in its region.

    Many of the things in life we have imbued with a sense of sanctity that the object doesn’t typically have. These objects can be simple representatives of a larger principle or, when taken too far, can become the “graven images,” the idols, that ancient religions condemned.

    SEATTLE — In this city, which is a petri dish of progressivism, a prevailing theory is that when you raise the price of something, people will buy less of it, except when they do not. Another, and related, theory is that constitutional and statutory texts should be construed in the spirit of Friedrich Nietzsche: There are no facts, only interpretations.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Frank Dickinson’s satirical letter in Tuesday’s WHT in that it was so filled with irony and sarcasm that it gave me a really good laugh, and when times are a little crazy and tense, laughter can indeed be the best medicine.

    America wants a king. Not all Americans, of course. You won’t find anything that all Americans want. We’re way too diverse and divided in our interests, political knowledge and tastes to agree on anything that easily.

    As I contemplate my future health care options, I wonder whether my premiums are north of $700 and going up 20 percent next year because the industry spent $78 million in lobbying. I don’t know.

    Here’s why we should respect our flag and the national anthem. The respect we give to the flag and the national anthem is a silent thanks to this person who is sitting there feeling a need to protect you. Think of it like a contract. You are able to stay safe at your home and sip your coffee because someone is patriotic enough to man the gates. These people have sworn to protect your life with their life, whether the threat comes from other humans or volcanoes, rivers, animals.

    WASHINGTON — It is often difficult to determine if Donald Trump’s offenses against national unity and presidential dignity are motivated by ignorance or malice. His current crusade against sideline activism at professional football games features both.

    New U.S. sanctions that give the Treasury Department the authority to block banks and businesses that do business with North Korea from using the U.S. financial system are a powerful tool. Existing United Nations sanctions haven’t yet forced a change in Kim’s behavior, while the known military options remain inconceivable in anything but the direst circumstances.

    WASHINGTON — It is difficult to decide which is the worst aspect of the Republicans’ latest try at repealing Obamacare: the irresponsibility, the cruelty or the lies.

    President Donald Trump’s one big idea about immigration — that there’s too much of it — is so wrong that it tends to obscure some of the smaller things the administration is trying to get right. Even minor changes could help restore public confidence in an immigration system that is too easily abused.
