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.

    After reading Carrie Moore’s letter July 18, I keep thinking about “time being wasted on resistance,” etc. I don’t know how I can stop resisting when a disastrous health care bill is in the works, the EPA’s mission apparently is now protecting corporate earnings, Trump’s pulling us out of the Paris Climate Accord and his desire to turn over a lot of national monuments and sanctuaries’ territory to the mining and fossil fuel industries deeply concerns me.

    At dawn the woodpeckers start in, hammering heads against tree trunks, and you wonder if there’s a better way for a bird to make a living. Oh, the avian migraines. Twilight lingers till nearly 11 p.m.; if there’s a decent moon, you can fish in the silver light of Montana’s longest days.

A president might find ways to confront the range of Russian aggression, including cyber-aggression, if only to avoid the impression of being bought and sold by a strategic rival.

    Depleted uranium (DU) is seen as an emerging environmental pollutant introduced primarily by military activity. The previous use of DU within Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) followed by repeated live-fire exercises, as are currently occurring, provide a serious threat to public health.

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. — It is said that America’s armed forces have been stressed by 16 years of constant warfare, the longest such in the nation’s history. For the Air Force, however, the high tempo of combat operations began 26 years ago, with enforcement of the no-fly zone in Iraq after Desert Storm. With an acute pilot shortage, particularly in the fighter pilot community, and with a shortfall approaching 4,000 among maintenance and staffing personnel, the service is, as Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson says, “too small for what the nation expects of it.”
