Obama and John Kerry have “struck a deal” with Iran. We’re now supposed to breathe easier. Because of this deal, we’re told, Iran will no longer be building nuclear weapons in order to destabilize the Middle East (translation: our oil supply) any more than it already is. Think about what it means to “strike a […]
Why is majority will such a sacred cow?
I’m no fan of Republicans, because in their own way they do just as much damage to the country as Democrats. In a way, they do more damage. They practice the same Big Government policies as the Democrats, most of the time, and then a majority are misled into believing that these are the policies […]
From forcing Americans into the enslavement of the medical profession, which is being accomplished by the man who defeated her and conferred her current diplomatic status, to leading what may be the worst foreign policy in American history, with major progression toward nuclear weapons by our arch-enemies, Hillary Clinton, despite her facade of competence, is a failure and a fraud in every respect.
The loss of a Navy SEAL who was killed last week while rescuing an American doctor held prisoner in Afghanistan underscores that the U.S. military action in Islamicist Asia is based on selflessness, not on U.S. self-interest. The SEAL’s name is Nicolas D. Checque. He was 28 years old. He came from Monroeville, Pennsylvania. Nicolas reportedly […]
Soon, we may live to see what was once unthinkable: the reality of a nuclear Islamicist Iran. What should have been a simple smackdown of a primitivistic, barbaric regime by a global superpower has festered for over 30 years into a crisis of catastrophic proportions. By all accounts, Iran—an avowed enemy of the United States […]
On September 11, 2012, Islamists attacked Americans in a U.S. foreign embassy and consulate and murdered four of those Americans in Libya. Evidence indicates that our government failed to take common-sense security measures to protect these Americans. Then our government issued numerous official statements that were as much condemnations of a YouTube video denigrating Islamists […]
We need an urgent end to faith-based appeasement.
According to Fox News, Iranian President Ahmadinejad would not elaborate on the announcement, but said within the next few days Iran will unveil “big new” nuclear achievements and that his country is ready to revive talks with the West but not “enemies” who act arrogant. Arrogant? Does Ahmadinejad mean to imply that Iran is NOT […]
Now that the Democrats have recovered from the shock of Governor Sarah Palin’s nomination as the Republican’s candidate for vice president, they have suddenly discovered that her lack of experience in general– and foreign policy experience in particular– is a terrible danger in someone just a heartbeat away from being President of the United States. […]
America’s policy of backing “land for peace” deals in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was supposed to stop Palestinian terrorism and culminate in a Palestinian state coexisting with Israel “side by side in peace and security.” But after years of Israeli concessions, and after American pleas to embrace “leaders uncompromised by terror,” the Palestinians chose Hamas–a terrorist […]
In the aftermath of the bombings in London, Prime Minister Tony Blair has asked the British people to remain calm and maintain their daily routines; the terrorists win, he says, if one gives in to fear. This, you may remember, was also George W. Bush’s response after Sept. 11, when he called on Americans to […]
While America should support the growth of freedom across the world, President Bush was dead wrong when he said, in his inaugural address, that “the survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands”. America’s security demands only the willingness to act against any threat to the United […]
I have just finished reading, with great pleasure, Peter Schwartz’s new booklet, The Foreign Policy of Self-Interest: A Moral Ideal for America (published by ARI Press). In just 60 clear, hard-hitting pages, Mr. Schwartz lays out the essentials of a proper foreign policy, with ample illustration of the radical difference between what we have been […]
We have lost the war on terrorism. President Bush’s address to the nation on the evening of May 25th, in which he detailed how he plans to stick to the June 30th handover of sovereign power to the Iraqi governing council, guarantees not only that Iraq is lost, but that the U.S. will be struck […]
Spain’s decision to turn tail and run, in response to a terrorist bombing, not only tells terrorists how to get their way in the future, it should also tell us about the dangers of outsourcing our foreign policy to our allies or to the United Nations, as so many on the left want us to […]
Last week, there was a very interesting opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal by two influential neoconservatives: David Frum and Richard Perle. The title was “Beware the Soft-Line Ideologues,” and it has a good theme, but it gets completely twisted up by its misunderstanding of philosophy. The theme is: the foreign-policy soft-liners, like Colin […]
In yet another presidential disappointment, FoxNews reported that Bush Opposes Taiwan Independence. “We oppose any unilateral decision by either China or Taiwan to change the status quo,” Bush told reporters, “and the comments and actions made by the leader of Taiwan” — referring to President Chen Shui-bian — “indicate that he may be willing to […]
Democrat presidential candidate Howard Dean has made a number of statements recently that give one a glimpse into the dark, multilateralist, socialist corners of his mind from his view that Bush May Have Been Tipped to 9/11 Attacks, to his apparent lust for censorship. But what most caught my attention was another scary quote from […]
The 900-page Congressional report criticizing the operations of the FBI and CIA in the months prior to the September 11 attacks misses the fundamental point. Whatever incompetence on the intelligence agencies’ part, what made September 11 possible was a failure, not by our intelligence agencies–but by the accommodating, range-of-the-moment, unprincipled foreign policy that has shaped […]
