There’s no nice way to say this, but somebody has to: There have been a lot of bad reactions on the right to the Afghanistan calamity.
President Joe Biden’s errors have been costly, and downplaying them to undercut the establishment only helps the blob perpetuate such tragedies.
While it appears we’re in for an extended season of disruption, hardship, and confusion, this is not the time to despair and hide. It is time to pray harder, pick up a shovel, and get to work.
The architects of the nation-building policies from Afghanistan to Iraq are failures and should be treated with the same disdain reserved for flat earthers or bloodletters.
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?
No one is debating the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. The question is, why did the withdrawal devolve into a horrifying disaster?
That the decrepit state of planning in the leadup to a known and announced withdrawal deadline persists so late in the game is unforgivable.
The DC establishment is at fault for promoting an unattainable outcome in Afghanistan for almost two decades and being ‘stunned’ when faced with the reality.
In the end, all America’s troops and dollars can’t build a cohesive, peaceful democracy out of nothingness. The future of Afghanistan needs to be up to the Afghan people.
Unless we explore the root causes, Afghanistan will not be the last of pointless U.S. wars.
Korea is a thought-provoking conflict that should be studied in intimate detail by the U.S. military and foreign policy experts. Let’s learn from our failures.
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.
One factor in a bunch of Americans opting for Donald Trump in 2016 was his promise not to start a new war in the Middle East — but the D.C. establishment secretly kept troops in Syria, and lied about it to the president.
A reprioritization of America’s strategic interests would cement the legacy of the first president in the era of great-power rivalry.
Whenever Trump leaves office, the GOP should flesh out elements of his agenda that went unfulfilled. Foremost among these should be foreign policy.
The Pentagon’s spokeswoman says the United States remains committed ‘to ensuring the enduring defeat of ISIS and supporting Iraq’s long-term security, stability, and prosperity.’ That is the job of the Iraqi military.
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.
A recent Foreign Affairs essay predictably gives the public a false binary choice, blames the current administration, and defends the foreign policy establishment.
