Multiculturalism is No Boon to Education, But an Agent of Anti-Western Ideology

Back to school nowadays means back to classrooms, lessons and textbooks permeated by multiculturalism and its championing of “diversity.” Many parents and teachers regard multiculturalism as an indispensable educational supplement, a salutary influence that “enriches” the curriculum. But is it? With the world’s continents bridged by the Internet and global commerce, multiculturalism claims to offer […]

Our Self-Crippled War

Watching video of the Twin Towers imploding, we all felt horror and outrage. We expected our government to fight back–to protect us from the enemy that attacked us on 9/11. We knew it must, and could, be done. Fighting all-out after Pearl Harbor, we had defeated the colossal naval and air forces of Japan. But […]

President Obama Whitewashes Iran

In his address to the joint session of Congress, President Obama said that “We cannot shun the negotiating table” in conducting our foreign policy. He’s previously elaborated that “if countries like Iran are willing to unclench their fist, they will find an extended hand from us.” And Iran’s president Ahmedinijad tentatively welcomes “talks based on […]

With or Without Nukes, Iran Is a Mortal Threat

Imagine that your neighborhood is overrun by a gang. These brutes are wielding crowbars, knives, and pistols in a frenzied spree of home break-ins and mugging and murder. Now suppose the police reveal that their grand strategy for dealing with this gang is to block them from getting submachine guns–as if without such weapons, the […]

Bush’s War Policy: The Top Campaign Non-Issue?

It’s staggering to think that as we march toward a seventh year at war, Iraq (let alone Afghanistan) is hardly an issue on the campaign trail. Of course, nobody has forgotten about the war. But there’s been no substantive debate on it, either. John McCain, echoing many conservatives, regularly touts the supposed gains of the […]

Terrorism: The Price of Bush’s Commitment to Palestinian Statehood

On his recent visit to the Middle East, Vice President Cheney voiced the Bush administration’s belief that a Palestinian state is “long overdue” and vowed to help make that goal a reality. Many conservatives and liberals agree with the administration that America should help fulfill the long-deferred Palestinian aspirations to statehood. The idea is that […]

The Assasination of Benazir Bhutto and The Pakistan Crisis

The assassination of Benazir Bhutto has, we’re told, upended Washington’s foreign policy. “Our foreign policy has relied on her presence as a stabilizing force. . . . Without her, we will have to regroup,” explained Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) in the Washington Post. “It complicates life for the American government.” But in fact U.S. policy […]

Why Was Washington Surprised by the Pakistan Crisis?

Few reports about the Islamist threat are more alarming than the situation right now in Pakistan–a nuclear-armed country that Washington hails as a “major non-NATO ally.” Having supported Musharraf’s regime, Washington is now scrambling–pressing Musharraf to share power with opponent Benazir Bhutto, then insisting that he’s “indispensable,” but also considering whether Bhutto would be better, […]

Is Washington With Us?

Ever since President Bush’s you’re-either-with-us-or-with-the-terrorists speech in 2001, his administration has been regarded as shaping its defense policy according to black-and-white moral judgments. If you haven’t already been convinced that that speech was empty rhetoric, last week offered another depressing piece of evidence. Washington refused to oppose, or even protest, Libya’s election to a seat […]

The War in Iraq: Worse Than Doing Nothing

On the anniversary of 9/11, we are reminded that the forces of Islamic totalitarianism continue to threaten our lives. What should we do to protect ourselves? Depressingly, today’s prevailing answer is to urge some form of “diplomacy”–and rule out as inconceivable the one option our self-defense demands: a war to defeat the enemy. If, like […]

Multiculturalism’s War on Education

Back to school nowadays means back to classrooms, lessons and textbooks permeated by multiculturalism and its championing of “diversity.” Many parents and teachers regard multiculturalism as an indispensable educational supplement, a salutary influence that “enriches” the curriculum. But is it? With the world’s continents bridged by the Internet and global commerce, multiculturalism claims to offer […]

The Nightmare of Being a U.S. Combat Troop in Iraq Hamstrung By Washington’s Battlefield “Ethics”

Americans rightly admire our troops for their bravery, dedication and integrity. The Marines, for instance, are renowned for abiding by an honorable code–as warriors and as individuals in civilian life. They epitomize the rectitude of America’s soldiers. But a recently disclosed Pentagon study–little noted in the media–has seemingly cast a shadow over our troops. The […]
