The affair highlights the challenges facing an aging alliance that was built for a different strategic context, and the inadequacy of old foreign policy structures for a new world.
For years, Qatar has bankrolled and provided haven to terrorist groups that threaten America’s interests and its allies. Let’s call a spade a spade.
It was the combination of 9/11 and the ongoing conflict between the United States and Iraq that culminated in the invasion of the latter in 2003.
If we hope to finally reach the day American troops can pack up their belongings and come back to their families, Washington must start viewing the war with clear eyes.
Were U.S. forces not already deployed to Syria, no sane person would recommend sending in 400 U.S. troops into a complex, dangerous civil war with multiple armed actors on the ground.
U.S. troops will reportedly leave eastern Syria by April, causing heart palpitations among the usual suspects who have never seen a U.S. intervention they wanted to end.

‘12 Strong’ is a welcome change from the ‘We’re all to blame’ war movies that leftists in Hollywood crank out.
The hearing made clear that ISIS has been destroyed and much of the credit, like it or not, should go to the Trump administration.
Although not on a scale similar to the Bolshevik revolution, the premises conveyed by Leon Trotsky have replayed themselves in American society.
On this 9/11 anniversary, we’re starting to realize that nobody has a coherent strategic answer to the threat of Islamic terrorism. We’re not even trying.
President Trump’s Afghanistan plan is, above all, a pledge to double down on the bipartisan failures of the last decade and half, making changes only for the worse.
