The war in Afghanistan is over. If our aim was to reshape Afghanistan as a modern civilized liberal democracy, we lost.
An attack that nearly killed the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan is just the latest sign that the security situation where the United States has been at war for 17 years is disintegrating.
A new book by Robert Kagan, ‘The Jungle Grows Back: America and Our Imperiled World,’ argues that the liberal world order is unraveling at a frightening pace, hastened in no small measure by its chief custodian and beneficiary.
Americans born 17 years ago can now enlist to fight in a war that began before they were born. It’s time to end the Afghanistan war.
Americans are sick of endless wars, and a bipartisan consensus of ordinary Americans yearns for more realism, restraint, and plain common sense in U.S. foreign policy.
With well more than 7,000 troops on the continent, the United States has troops in 50 of Africa’s 54 countries, and is conducting combat missions in roughly 20 African countries.
No matter how charming Macron is during his visit to Washington, President Trump should avoid being suckered into a longer and deeper involvement in Syria.
President Trump wanted to declare victory over ISIS in Syria and go home. Well, that’s the trick, isn’t it? It turns out ‘win and go home’ rarely works.
To Americans tired of military campaigns to social engineer governments in distant lands, Donald Trump suggested he might embrace a less belligerent foreign policy. That’s not happening.
Upping the ante in Syria would be politically disastrous for the president, and more important, it would damage America’s national security. Here’s why.
A leaked Trump administration memo says America should stop ‘badgering’ allies on issues such as democracy, the rule of law, or human rights. There’s some truth there.
That the Kim Jong-un regime is oppressive is not up for debate, but the wisdom of pledging the United States to preventive military intervention in North Korea most certainly is.
Media outlets weep that this is a crime against humanity, denouncing a Muslim ‘massacre’ going on in Myanmar, almost completely ignoring that this is a vicious, both-sided conflict.
President Trump’s Afghanistan plan is, above all, a pledge to double down on the bipartisan failures of the last decade and half, making changes only for the worse.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is so far doubling down on a failed status quo, dragging out a strategic loss already bought at a dear cost.
The Trump administration appears to be throwing down the gauntlet not just to Syria, but also to its allies Russia and Iran.
