The whole-of-government approach to failure in a 20-year, $2 trillion fraud and money-laundering scheme has resulted in an epiphany for Americans: their country is ruled by crooks, liars, and thieves.
What should American veterans, servicemembers, and their families, friends, and countrymen who poured their blood, sweat, tears, and treasure into Afghanistan take away from all this?
Unless we explore the root causes, Afghanistan will not be the last of pointless U.S. wars.
David Frum’s dangerous argument is part of a larger effort to suggest that if China attacks democratically ruled Taiwan, helping Taiwan is not worth the risk of war with China.
Federalist Publisher Ben Domenech said on Fox News Wednesday the U.S. presence in Afghanistan is one area in which Washington DC has been completely detached from what Americans want.
President Biden shouldn’t make empty promises. The strategy should be about bleeding China if they overstretch, rather than committing American lives to a potentially attritional war.
Al-Shabaab does not pose a threat to America that cannot be handled more effectively by our global intelligence networks and ability to strike direct threats to our country.
Several defense experts lauded the Trump administration’s lame-duck decision to proceed with troop draw-downs in Iraq and Afghanistan, saying more should be done.
A reprioritization of America’s strategic interests would cement the legacy of the first president in the era of great-power rivalry.
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.
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.
If Trump is serious about his call to change course on military intervention, he should actually bring troops home — and if he’s concerned about pushback, Yemen is the perfect place to start.
The United States’ top priority should be leaving Afghanistan, not securing a deal that would mostly be a public relations win.
The president should appoint a new national security advisor who shares his instincts: to get out of quagmires, to seek deals to reduce tensions, and to get our allies to take defense seriously.
After 18 years, thousands of casualties, and a price tag that could be as high as $1 trillion, the United States has done all it can in Afghanistan. Instead of finding excuses to stay, it’s time to come home.
Donald Trump remains the first president in 25 years to not have started a new war. As the U.S. nears a deal, he should take this opportunity to bring American troops home.
Calls from hawks like John Bolton and others in the military for more intervention are bad for Trump’s reelection chances and even worse for the United States.
Gabbard threatens the status quo and the never-ending war mentality that enriches the coffers of powerful interests. That’s exactly why she should be heard.
Neocons have lost the GOP base due to their mishandling of the United States’ foreign wars, and Trump’s presidency is only just the beginning of a necessary shift.
