It’s time for President Trump to fully withdraw all U.S. combat troops from Iraq. Iraq must assume responsibility for its own security.
Remaining actively engaged militarily in the Middle East only deepens our strategic failure and extends the forever war that Trump has repeatedly criticized.
The tiny Russian contingent that deployed to Caracas last week doesn’t threaten the United States, but blundering our way into great power conflict over this deployment does.
If military actions continue to be taken abroad by the inclinations of a single person, the nation could find itself plunged into a war it would not have chosen if its people were consulted.
Liberal interventionism and neoconservatism offer us the same militaristic approaches. It’s time for a new, more thoughtful approach to our foreign policy.
