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.
President Trump wants to make it clear that it’s the Muslim world, not the United States, that must lead the way in pushing back against Islamism.
If Trump’s shock presidential win taught us anything, it should be that the United States cannot be so stretched protecting others that it hurts its own citizens.
Our political culture has degraded to the point where it encourages the worst presidential temptations—and we’ve made waging war nearly as easy as firing off a tweet.
The Trump administration, like the Obama administration before it, is militarily invested in Iraq and Syria. Yet it has no strategic vision for Syria after the fight against ISIS is over.
If a few tear-jerker images can move President Trump (or anyone) to support a war that he always opposed, we’re in bad shape indeed.
Because Syrian President Bashar al-Assad continues to possess weapons of mass destruction, and has now used them twice, a U.S. response was warranted.
America has launched air strikes against the Syrian regime, but do we have a strategy yet for Syria? Or do we have too many?
President Trump once said the U.S. should stay out of Syria. Then he bombed airbases there. The case for strikes is better than the case for all out war.
Chemical weapons attacks by the Assad regime in Syria have amplified calls for military intervention there. We need some key questions answered first.
On the centennial of America’s entry into World War I, the reasons we went to war hold an eerie resemblance to issues facing our country today.
We shouldn’t need humanitarian prompting to care about Syria. We should care because we’re terrified of the implications for our own interests and security.
