Amber Smith and Bre Payton discuss our war in the Middle East, PTSD, and the migrant caravan on the Federalist Radio Hour.
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.
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.
To be effective, NATO needs the support of the American people. That means no more regime-change, occupations, or long term nation-building missions.
In ‘Craig and Fred,’ Craig Grossi tells the inspiring story of how a stray dog helped him overcome PTSD. But the book also raises discomfiting questions about how we put care of animals above the needs of our fellow man.
Allison Jaslow shares her own story of military service, and the stories of other Iraq-Afghanistan veterans that we have forgotten on the Federalist Radio Hour.
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.
It takes ignorance or willful obfuscation to assert President Trump has flipped since he started listening to generals.
While Trump may have changed his position vis-à-vis troop deployment to Afghanistan, he’s staying true to many of the foreign policy principles he espoused during his campaign.
If watching soldiers do their thing makes you feel unmanly, take that up with your conscience and local recruiter. Please stop projecting your insecurities onto the rest of us.
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.
Now the New York Times is horrified by U.S. military turning a blind eye to Afghan child rape. But a few years ago, they published someone who praised it.
If you truly want to honor the sacrifices of military members and veterans, do more concrete things than merely saying thanks.
