State of Maryland secondary Archives: on War & Peace


Richard Douglas: When the Senate fails, Iran gets the bomb

When the Senate fails, Iran gets the bomb. Decisiveness and courage for Maryland will work wonders in a Senate where both are in short supply. I will take to the U.S. Senate a strong sense of duty to the nation, to Maryland, and to you.

Rich is an Iraq veteran and also served as senior lawyer at three U.S. Senate committees, working for principled legends like the late Jesse Helms--one of the few to serve on Capitol Hill with experience in both the mechanical trades and the armed forces

Richard Douglas: If the Senate fails, we fail, like Iran nuke deal

On the heels of the dangerous Obama Administration nuclear deal with Iran, "Now more than ever, the U.S. Senate needs individuals like Richard Douglas who understand the power of Congress in these dangerous times," said Ambassador John Bolton at Douglas' candidacy announcement event. "The Iran deal is dangerous for America, Israel, and our allies across the globe."

Douglas will leverage his military background and legal experience as former senior counsel to key U.S. Senate committees to protect the nation's security interests and reform foreign policy in the wake of the Iran agreement, the so-called "red-line" against Syria using chemical weapons, Russian aggression in Ukraine and the threat of ISIS at home and abroad.

"These times demand a mastery of Senate rules and the subject matter," said Douglas. "They require tenacity to overcome inertia and Senate unwillingness to assert itself in policies defining the nation. If the Senate fails, we fail. I aim to prevent that."

Barbara Mikulski: Pipkin had no plan for the war and for peace

PIPKIN: I believe itís important that we fight the terrorists in Baghdad, rather than in Bethesda or Baltimore or on the Bay Bridge.

MIKULSKI: What a poor civilian leader Pipkin has turned out to be, to either help Bush or support our troops. He didnít have a plan for the war and he certainly didnít have a plan for peace.
