The contradiction between their virtue-signaling platitudes and what they say reveals the hypocrisy of these ‘concerned’ graduates of West Point.
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.
D.C.’s hysteria is dangerous. The strike wasn’t necessarily wrong, but the president must tread carefully. Too much of D.C. wants him not to.
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.
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.
As long as the Pentagon is a sacred cow, the United States will never balance its budget. If our military stops being the world police, it can have all the ships and planes it needs to keep us and the troops safe.
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.
It’s time to overhaul the U.S. national security establishment. No subjects of failed policy are more evident than Afghanistan and our southern border.
An Atlantic hit piece on President Trump disguised as military leadership critique misses the bigger point.
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.
Reducing tensions with North Korea (and saving millions of dollars in the process) is an obvious good that’s coming from Trump’s recent decision.
American men and women are still being sent to far-off lands, under-trained and under-equipped, to fight in conflicts that have little congressional oversight and little payoff for U.S. strategy.
It’s completely shocking that this isn’t obvious to laymen and Washington insiders. After four decades of aggression from Iran, we should look at options.
The administration has merely required that transgender individuals meet the same requirements as all other Americans who apply for military service. Cue the usual lies and hysteria.
Women should simply not be allowed to serve in infantry units. There are many places women can and do serve honorably in the U.S. military, but infantry work is man’s work.
Critics suggest it is ridiculous to question the idea that defending Montenegro via the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is necessary to keep America safe. They’re wrong.
Europe is the beneficiary of the insurance policy that Americans pay, since a majority of NATO members do not have any significant investment in defense.
