We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

A little international news as Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon quit the political party he helped to found. Likud, the rightwing hawkish party in the Knesset currently controls one third of the body. Sharon leaving the party will create some holes for leadership but the part is sure to lose some ground as Sharon loyalists follow him to the new centrist party he's creating.
Sharon was traditionally a hawk and some might even argue a war monger of sorts as he helped to drive the settlements in Israel, many of which were considered illegal. He's now the one leading a movement to tear down some of those settlements, creating strife in his Likud party.
In the end, Sharon is an old soldier. He carried a big stick and rattled the cages of many of the Palestinian militants. It appears to have made progress. I think he'll continue to act like and old soldier. Right now he's regrouping and I think he might just come out ahead.
