“The Transplants is selling briskly on Amazon.com. Thanks to everyone who’s purchased a copy. For those who haven’t yet; remember, you don’t need a Kindle device to read the Kindle edition. Just download the free Kindle app from “The a Transplants” book page on Amazon.com. Also e-books make great gifts, especially for people far away like troops serving overseas. All you need is an email address.
For those of you who don’t generally read SciFi books, “The Transplants” isn’t your normal SciFi novel. No aliens with superpowers, no little green men; just a story about two people from another planet who look just like us in search of a planet where they can save their species and live anonomyous lives. On the run from the U.S. government that wants to lock them away and study them and from foreign governments that want to do the same, they survive, evade and escape across two continents before a final confrontation with their pursuers, It’s a SciFi story by definition, but it’s much more. It’s a love story, an action adventure story, and a Washington, D.C. bureaucratic politics story.
Try it you’ll like it. If you don’t, I’ll provide verified purchasers their money back.

It sickens my heart as a Vietnam War combat veteran to watch Iraq fall apart like South Vietnam did. We may not have to watch American helicopters evacuating the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad as the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) terrorist army takes over the city, but again we are watching the disintegration of a government and the loss of territory U.S. warriors fought and died for. Were their sacrifices in vain as some now say they were? (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

During the nearly five and a half years of the Obama presidency, America has been moving in the wrong direction. The U.S. economy continues to struggle through the longest and slowest recovery from recession since World War II. From Benghazi to Ukraine, U.S. foreign policy has collapsed. U.S. world leadership has receded to a low not seen since the 1930s. Have we hit bottom yet? (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

Critical mass in nuclear science is the smallest amount of fissile material needed for a sustained nuclear chain reaction. Critical mass in international politics is the smallest amount of aggression needed to start a war. Despite what President Obama and other Western leaders say and do, the situation in Ukraine may be fast approaching that point. (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

If Republicans continue to lose presidential elections it won’t be only because they failed to garner a sufficient percentage of the growing Hispanic, Asian and African-American vote; it will be because they continue to lose the propaganda war. (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

Like most conservatives, President Obama’s proposed reductions of the U.S. armed forces disturb me. Since after World War I, every time we have reduced our military strength after a war, we’ve regretted it. Nevertheless, it’s time to rethink the mission, size and composition of the U.S. military, preparing for the next war, not a repeat of the last one. It all comes down to the correct assumptions.

Speaking in Indonesia last week, Secretary of State John Kerry, said that global warming is “perhaps even the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.” Sec. Kerry may or may not be right about the destruction global warming may ultimately cause; but he’s absolutely right about one thin. Global warming is a weapon. It’s a political weapon of mass destruction. (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

The way things are going in Iraq and Afghanistan, the prospects for lasting victory are fading with worse long-term consequences than Vietnam. The human cost of the Vietnam War was far greater than it has been in Iraq and Afghanistan, but I choose to believe that our warriors did not die in vain in Vietnam because we ultimately won the Cold War of which the wars in Korea and Vietnam were part. Still, we lost the Vietnam War and suffered lasting consequences as a result. What’s at stake in the Middle East is greater than what was at stake in Vietnam. (Read the full column at EWRoss.com
