Why We Can't Afford to Fail in Iraq

Because the terrorists win if we prematurely withdraw. Despite the cunning strategy displayed by Japanese military planners in the attack on Pearl Harbor, they made a grave miscalculation in thinking that America lacked the steely nerve to mount a credible counter-offensive. Only Admiral Yamamoto, the brilliant leader of the Japanese Fleet, recognized the predicament his…

Editorial: Goodbye For the Summer

Dear Harbus Reader:We have 17 issues down, and this Editorial Staff of The Harbus News has 16 issues to go. First, the past seventeen issues – hopefully, in your mind as a reader, the paper has extended beyond the advent and reign of the incomparable and hilarious “That Guy”. This first semester for us at…

Editorial: Revenge of the Nerds

Typically, it’s best that The Harbus Editorial Staff preserve the integrity of this revered editorial space for taking on critical issues like the closing of the tunnel system or for asking questions like “should HBS expand the social enterprise curriculum?”. This week we would have followed that tradition, had it not been for the meddling…

Tribute to Jimmy

This afternoon when I came home from class, I was saddened by the official news from the Pentagon that my buddy, Captain Jimmy Adamouski, United States Army, was killed with five other soldiers, when their helicopter went down in the Iraqi desert. I say “buddy” even though I didn’t know Jimmy very well. A month…

Letter to the Editor

Allen [Dear Editor], At least one of the questions for That Guy wasn’t funny. I don’t believe Iraq is a good humor topic (and the many passionate contributions in last week’s issue support that idea). I also don’t think this kind of section I joke is funny either. “Section I sucks” is not exactly what…

That Guy

The Harbus: So everyone asks who you are. Who are you? TG: Allen-get a friggin’ clue, man. This thing is supposed to be anonymous. We talked about this, remember? Don’t they teach you anything in Section J besides how to chug beers at the Bus Stop? The Harbus: I’m going to give you some comparisons….

Editorial: March Madness

In this week’s issue, along with printing the results of the ‘controversial Harbus Poll’, in the special “HBS at Wartime” section, we asked several students, as the start of a continuing dialogue on the topic, what their initial opinions of the war have been. As far as my personal initial feeling about the war, I’m…

All I Know About Iraq, I Learnt it in Kindergarten

When I was in kindergarten, we used to argue a lot about fundamental issues, like whose father was the strongest. We had a lot of discussions to prove our points, some rational, some not, but we sure felt strongly about the issue. We were too young I believe to understand that our arguments were irrelevant….

Impressions of a First Year

Another Weird Mike:I wasn’t going to write an article this week, but then I discovered that Mike Tyson got a face tattoo. Who in the hell gets a face tattoo? Answer: Mike Tyson. Somewhere, Michael Jackson and his masked kids are looking at the same photo we are, saying, “Jeez Tyson’s weird”. In 1984, when…

Editorial:

As NBC Meet the Press host Tim Russert said about the U.S. and Iraq on The Tonight Show, “The sword has been drawn into the air, and not to follow through – many believe – would be an act of impotence.” Then I recalled the words of Hans Blix when he said essentially we can…

Big Questions About Iraq

The Iraq situation is turning into a mess. Bickering between the United States and Germany-France-Belgium over how to deal with Saddam Hussein has risen to worrisome levels. Should there be a war? Should there be a second resolution? Should the United Nations be involved? Should Hussein be given another chance? These are all questions that…

Editorial

It appears inevitable that the United States will soon go to war. If by chance of a miracle we do not fight Iraq, we will continue to engage with absolute certainty against the state of domestic and international public opinion. In one of this week’s featured articles, we explore America’s diplomatic strategy to persuade Turkey,…

Shades of Gray

Over lunch this weekend, my fianc‚ asked me, “What’s going on about the war on campus?” My first thought was, “There’s a war on campus? Do they want to take Spangler?” Then I realized he meant the threat of war with Iraq. I struggled, and failed, to come up with a good reply. I haven’t…

Forget Iraq:

All eyes are on Iraq these days, but conventional wisdom holds it’s just the first step of the Bush administration’s larger push to gain hegemony over the international oil and gas industry. Two factors could stand in the way of the US grand plan though: Central Asia and Europe. A microcosm of this battle is…

IRAQ: The Cold Call Summary
