Trump criticized Mattis’ demand of a permanent U.S. military presence on the border of Syria and Turkey, and noted that predictions of a slaughter of Kurds following the withdrawal of U.S. troops never materialized.
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.
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.
If these predictions come to pass, their fulfillment will have lasting effects upon America in the 2020s and beyond.
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.
Journalist Mike Giglio joins the Federalist Radio Hour to discuss his new book on the rise and fall of the ISIS caliphate in the Middle East.
Remaining actively engaged militarily in the Middle East only deepens our strategic failure and extends the forever war that Trump has repeatedly criticized.
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.
At best, Mexico is a failed state. At worst, it is a rogue state, hostile to regional peace. The silence from politicians who would have otherwise cried intervention speaks volumes.
Trump’s presidency has been defined by senior government officials who are open about their loyalty to the administrative state, including criminal acts and abuses of power, over the imperatives of a democratically elected president.
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.
On this segment of “The Fray” on SiriusXM with Ben Domenech and Emily Jashinksy, our hosts discuss why legacy media was freaking out over this win for the Trump administration.
Meet the military working dog, and very good boy, who played a key role in the killing of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
The successful strike against ISIS founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi complicated media and Democratic efforts to destroy Trump.
Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi’s death draws a curtain on an episode that was partly influenced by our bad choices, choices that started in 2011 at the start of the Arab Spring.
The obituary from the Washington Post framed one of the world’s most brutal terrorists as an “austere religious scholar.”
During a press conference Sunday morning, President Trump announced the death of ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Trump’s critics appear to believe that backing a Marxist splinter group aligned with the anti-American, pro-Iranian axis in its war against a NATO ally is sound policy.
Where is the cohort of new voices in our politics or media who are skeptical of the intelligence community or the assessments of the American military?
A failed state just surrendered a drug lord’s son and a whole city to a drug cartel. The nation’s president praised the surrender. In a sensible world, this would ring alarm bells in the Pentagon.
