With greater expansion comes greater dilution, and a diluted alliance is as good as dead, as there will never be a sense of internal cohesion.
There’s a reason London witnessed another terrorist knife attack. It’s a perfect nightmare of woke academics, their flawed rehabilitation theories, and activist judges.
The first shots of Chinese colonialism are evident as we head to the third decade of this century. One would be foolish not to take note of this historically significant development — and study its actual character.
The format of the debate and a hyper-schoolmarmish moderator allowed neither Boris Johnson nor Jeremy Corbyn to put in a word of value. The result was a clown show full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
Emmanuel Macron’s harsh assessment of NATO is just a new episode of French realism in the European balance. The ‘iron hand in a velvet glove’ is back.
The editor of National Review wrote a book praising a benevolent, liberal, unifying form of nationalism. The vitriolic reaction was eye-opening.
At best, Mexico is a failed state. At worst, it is a rogue state, hostile to regional peace. The silence from politicians who would have otherwise cried intervention speaks volumes.

It’s unthinkable that any other great power would get away without any backlash from either Islamic powers, Islamic civil society, or jihadist groups. And that is one of the biggest puzzles in foreign policy worth probing.

Moving American troops from Syria would be perhaps the most far-sighted thing Trump does as president, and would benefit the United States in the years to come.
It was the conventional wisdom that China, due to the burden of its global responsibilities, would become a responsible stakeholder and global citizen through greater market access. That’s not happening.
We’re seeing sexualized dances, hallucinogens, worshiping nature, confessing sins in pagan animism, worshiping purified teen saints, all to promote a supposedly greater cause.
Conservatives should realize the value of a future British-Indian-American-Australian axis, the largest free-market group in the world, a highly educated research pool, and the strongest military axis to balance the rise of China.
‘The world of tomorrow is a world of empires, in which we Europeans and you British can only defend your interests, your way of life, by doing it together in a European framework and a European Union,’ says a key EU leader.
The Afghanistan War was never supposed to be an endless imperial policing mission. At a time of resurgent great power rivalry, President Trump deserves to have an NSA who is a foreign policy realist.
After several dust-ups and intra-theological disputes, David French and Sohrab Ahmari still didn’t answer the key question of conservative policy.
