There is a genuine prospect of a military coup in Turkey. Part of advocating democracy is living with unpopular results. Islamism like Communism is ruinous to the future of any country that embraces it. The reality is that we should be watchful of a coup attempt. A military government in Turkey may also be more forceful in the Kurdish areas and create refugees into Iraq.
The Bush administration needs to borrow a page from the Reagan years. We need to help Contra movements inside Iran and Syria. The fact is that both regimes are providing arms and free passage to the insurgents. We need to create similar types of problems in both countries. The Iranian and Syrian Thugocracies may have to divert resources from the Insurgents and Narco-terrorist Hezbollah. The Azeris and Kurds want to be reunited across borders. The Baluch are yearning for independence
and have a greater case than the Pseudostinians. Even the residents of Brooklyn have a greater case than the Pseudostinians.
We also need to eliminate the last bastions of the far left once and for all. The far left has abused higher ed for too long.
1 Elimination of student loans for all Social Science majors with the exception of economics and psychology. History Majors with a minor in education should be eligible for loans.
2 Revamping the Liberal Arts base to include Accounting, Finance, Business Management
and Marketing. These classes are far more important than sociology.
3 Elimination of all government grants for victim studies research.
4 The creation of national standards for on line universities. On line Unversities need to compette on quality and there is a niche in the market for a Marx/Marcuse free University.
5 The elimination of tenure going forward. College Professors should not be protected anymore than any other employees. Let DePaul and MIT have to answer for the behavior of Professors who Jet set to Lebanon and endorse Narco-Terrorists. The Current system allows administrators to duck accountability. Free speech ends when you are using your position as an expert. Chomsky abuses MIT's reputation and the University should have recourse.
