- Editorial: Hillary Clinton's Claims on Experience (Time.com)
"THE BOTTOM LINE [on Children's Health Care]: The record suggests Clinton did indeed lobby for children's health coverage but that many others were responsible as well. And it also shows that her husband nearly killed the idea before it ever got off the ground."
"THE BOTTOM LINE [on the Northern Ireland Peace Process]: Clinton played a role in hearing the concerns of Irish women left out of the peace process, and in encouraging them to put pressure on their countrymen to pursue negotiations. But that does not mean she rolled up her sleeves and conducted or led the talks that resulted in the 1998 Good Friday Agreement."
"THE BOTTOM LINE [on Macedonia Refugees]: In the case of Macedonia, Clinton engaged in personal diplomacy that brought about change. But securing the return of American business partners is not the same as the opening of borders to thousands of refugees. That accomplishment was a result of broader U.S. and European efforts during the war." 03-08
- 05-30-08 Countries Agree to Cluster Bomb Ban (CNN News)
"More than 100 countries attending a conference in Dublin, Ireland formally adopted a treaty Friday to ban cluster bombs -- a large, unreliable and inaccurate weapon that often affects civilians long after the end of armed conflict."
"Most of a cluster bomb's bomblets are meant to explode on impact, but many do not. Credible estimates show the weapons fail to explode on impact between 10 and 40 percent of the time, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross."
"That means unexploded bomblets lie scattered across a target area, often exploding only when handled or disturbed -- posing a serious risk to civilians."
"Some of the biggest makers and users of cluster bombs cited by human rights groups -- such the United States, Russia, China and Israel -- were not involved in the talks and did not sign the accord. Organizers expressed hope that those nations would nevertheless be pressured into compliance." 05-08
- -11-22-10 Editorial: Will the Irish Bailout End the Euro Crisis? (Time.com)
"Just as the Greek bailout failed to stem the euro crisis, I believe the Irish bailout will fail as well. That's because all of the underlying issues will remain in place. Sure, this time around, the EU has funds already committed to help Ireland – the $1 trillion rescue fund announced in May, which didn't exist during the Greek meltdown. But the availability of bailout money won't resolve the uncertainties inherent in the very nature of the EU's bailout scheme."
"First, the success of the bailout will depend on the ability of Ireland's government to impose incredibly severe budget cuts, demanded by its Eurozone pals in return for the rescue funds." 11-10

"In a typically blunt display, the New York property tycoon told an inquiry into renewable energy to stop wind power efforts in the country's north."
" 'Scotland, if you pursue this policy of these monstrous turbines, Scotland will go broke,' he said. "They are ugly, they are noisy and they are dangerous. If Scotland does this, Scotland will be in serious trouble and will lose tourism to places like Ireland, and they are laughing at us.' "
"When challenged to produce hard evidence about his claims on the negative impact of turbines, Trump said: 'I am the evidence, I am a world class expert in tourism.' "
"The public gallery burst into laughter."
"Scotland's tourism agency said its own research shows 83% of UK visitors will not be turned off by wind turbines."
Editor's Note: We are reminded of another Don, Don Quixote, who sought to destroy monstrous windmills. 04-12
