It now appears likely that Gen. Mattis, a Marine Corps legend, will leave his post as head of America’s most important combatant command in March, several months earlier than planned. Ricks continues:
“Why the hurry? Pentagon insiders say that he rubbed civilian officials the wrong way — not because he went all “mad dog,” which is his public image, and the view at the White House, but rather because he pushed [...]

SIENA, Italy — Tucked away in this Tuscan city, the oldest bank in the world has survived the Borgias, pestilence and too many wars to count. Now, a mundane foe has proved far more dangerous: Italian government debt.
The 540-year-old Monte dei Paschi Bank, Italy’s third-largest, is on the ropes as it struggles to deal with holdings of Italian bonds, once considered a prudent place to tuck cash.

A huge bomb blast rocked the heart of Damascus yesterday as pressure mounted on the regime, with the world’s largest pan-Islamic bloc poised to suspend Syria over the unrelenting violence.
The US accused Iran of setting up a pro-regime militia in Syria as Washington increasingly ties the prolonging of the conflict – now in its 18th month – to interference by its long-time foe Tehran.

Venezuela is training a “guerrilla army” aiming to be a million strong by 2013 to fight off a possible US invasion, an opposition lawmaker said Sunday.

The former presidential candidate said [...]
Cuban president Raúl Castro said on Thursday that his government was willing to mend fences with its bitter cold war foe, the United States.
At the end of a Revolution Day ceremony marking the 59th anniversary of an uprising against dictator Fulgencio Batista’s regime, Castro grabbed the microphone and made apparently impromptu remarks. He said no topic was off limits, including US concerns about democracy, freedom of the press and human rights on the [...]
This summer’s much-anticiapted Hollywood blockbuster, “The Dark Knight Rises,” is getting an unusual boost from Democrats and other foes of Mitt Romney who are eager to tie the Gotham crushing villain to the GOP presidential candidate. Their angle: the mask-wearing, “Venom” gas breathing bad guy has a name that sounds just like Romney’s former investment firm that President Obama has been blasting as a jobs killer.
“Bane” is the terrorist in the [...]
“Betting on America,” President Barack Obama hits the road on Thursday debuting the latest in a string of slogans adopted and then discarded as he seeks a cogent political meme as the economy drags.
He will strike his new theme on a two-day bus tour of rust belt swing states Ohio and Pennsylvania, where he will skewer rich Republican foe Mitt Romney, painted by his campaign brass as a tax-dodging outsourcer [...]

Businessman Frank Vandersloot, the CEO of Melaleuca, has been targeted by the Obama campaign after donating money to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. “Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, ‘Keeping GOP Honest,’ took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney,” Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal reported. “Titled ‘Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,’ the post accused the eight of being ‘wealthy [...]

Pravda is hitting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney over comments he made about Russia. “Russia is the geopolitical foe,” Romney said earlier this week in response to President Obama telling his Russian counterpart to give him “space” so that he could have “more flexibility” after the 2012 presidential election.
So, in an op-ed today posted on Pravda‘s website, the infamous former Soviet newspaper writes, “Electing Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States [...]
AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.
We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking [...]

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (CBS Cleveland/AP)— A former professional wrestler is suing his opponent and the Indiana-based promoter who arranged their bout last year, claiming his foe was supposed to lose their match but had other ideas and kicked him so hard in the crotch that one of his testicles ruptured and had to be removed.
John Levi Miller, 23, contends in his lawsuit filed Monday that Clinton Woosley was the “heel,” a [...]

A top official with the National Rifle Association said Friday that President Obama will move to “destroy” gun rights and “erase” the Second Amendment if he is re-elected in November.
While delivering one of the liveliest and best-received speeches at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said the president’s low-key approach to gun rights during his first term was “a “conspiracy to ensure re-election [...]
HAVANA (Reuters) – Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro denounced NATO on Monday for its role in the overthrow of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, saying the “brutal military alliance has become the most perfidious instrument of repression the history of humanity has known.”
Castro, 85, also expressed indignation at the killing of Gaddafi last week and the subsequent treatment of his body, which he said was “kidnapped and exhibited like a trophy [...]
Since this chart from the WSJ sums up petty much everything about the “efficient market hypothesis” or whatever it is those wacky Chicago PhD’s call their multi-variable, self-similar, Lorenzian “strange attractor” equations that describe human irrationality to the dot, there is little need for commentary (those who wish to do so, can read more about it at “Fed Faces Old Foe as Hazard Returns“)
I suffer from Tea Party envy. There is little about the actual party I like, and there are some members I abhor, but I am jealous of its sense of purpose, its determination and its bracing conviction that it is absolutely right.
