What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.|

How many of those new iPhone owners will be defectors from Google Inc.'s Android operating system? Perhaps quite a few, after reports of a major security flaw affecting millions of Android devices. Security researchers say that the so-called "Stagefright" bug is a truly dangerous threat. Most affected Android phones are defenseless, and many could stay that way for weeks. http://goo.gl/a8TZuM|
