President Trump nominated William Ruger for U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan on Thursday in a move speculated to help reduce U.S. troops in the area after nearly 20 years of war.
Scholar, Afghanistan veteran, and naval reservist Will Ruger wants to pull U.S. troops out immediately. His elevation implies the president finally understands that personnel is policy.
Berkeley Law School professor and constitutional scholar John Yoo joins the Federalist Radio Hour to make the case that Trump is protecting the Constitution.
A recent Foreign Affairs essay predictably gives the public a false binary choice, blames the current administration, and defends the foreign policy establishment.
As the agreement makes clear, the United States and its allies are indeed looking for the exits. If all goes to plan, U.S. and coalition forces will vacate Afghanistan by spring 2021.
No new wars or interventions in Iran or Venezuela, a partial drawdown from Iraq and Syria, and an Afghanistan withdrawal deal is a foreign policy record to be proud of.
There may be neoconservatives cheering that drone strike, as neoconservatives are wont to do, but it is unlikely that they are the ones driving policy.
The length, scope, and operational duration of the attack suggests it is a targeted towards regime stability and an internal audience. Whether it leads to further escalation is a political call.
Only the absence of retaliation or some lower-level action that gives both sides a face-saving way out of the predicament can restore deterrence. Otherwise, fight’s on.
Just as we have other options aside from war, it’s worth considering how limited Iran’s appetite for war with the United States actually is.
That President Trump had to make this call, how, and the mortal danger to American assets it presents, illustrate exactly why U.S. forces should not spend a day longer in Iraq.
Now Iran knows America is unconstrained by politically correct rules of engagement, and no longer acting out of delusions about bribing a jihadist regime into peace.
The best way to neutralize Iran is to have them overstretch. An older, forgotten grand strategy where adversaries bleed each other is in the Western interest.
Iran’s Qassim Soleimani and Iraq’s Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were killed in American airstrikes near Baghdad International Airport.
Chinese activity beyond its borders does not inherently threaten America. The twin narratives of Trump ‘abandoning’ the Middle East and any Chinese presence as a threat to America are false.
Media figures are lying about Tuesday’s attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. Why?
Three years gone, thousands of lives lost, tens of billions in debt-funded spending, and we’re right back where we started, with a permanent entanglement in the longest war in U.S. history.
Remaining actively engaged militarily in the Middle East only deepens our strategic failure and extends the forever war that Trump has repeatedly criticized.
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.
