Did you know that, the grinning international press reports on “America’s Humiliation” in Syria. It would make one feel good if this would be no more than hostile propaganda and as such transparently untrue. Alas, in Syria the shoe fits. Putin’s pie has landed on the […]
Kissinger wrote a book on World Order. It is quite informative. A slow read, but chock full of history. Basically world order was meant to be a balance of power between all the super powers. And wars were fought to bring the order back to equilibrium. Today […]
It’s not a stretch to say that what ex-president Jimmy Carter did for Iran, Barack Obama is doing for the whole Middle East and beyond. Islamic State is on the move; jihadism in general is raging and all the rage; and with the Iran deal, the man […]
Some of the U.S. intelligence community’s top analysts reportedly informed the Pentagon watchdog that their reports have been systematically edited to backup President Barack Obama‘s — and his national security team’s — assertions that the war on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as more […]
Recognized and esteemed conservative opinion-makers seem to have a dismally inadequate grasp of Middle Eastern issues.
In what many describe as a triumphant visit this week to the United States, Pope Francis at one point delivered a dramatic address before world leaders gathered in New York City at the United Nations. His Holiness urged world leaders to take decisive action to protect “the […]
Terrorists posing as refugees
This past week, 14 years later we, as a nation, took pause to remember September 11, 2001. Yes it has been 14 years already since that deadly attack on the American people and it is something that will be burned into our […]
Upon the anniversary of the infamous 9/11 it is instructive to put that and current events into an overarching context. 9/11 was an act of terrorism and a very effective one. That said, it was more than that. By understanding the “more” we are better equipped to […]
Despite last minute arguments, a House vote of disapproval, and possible other behind-the-scenes attempts to thwart The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran’s nuclear program it now appears almost a certainty that the deal will go forward in its present form. Future fallout will be dangerous and […]
Noviana Malewa after “Month of Peace”
Remarking inconvenient truths about radical Islam can ruin your career–but not doing so will ruin lives.
After the Iran Deal was announced, my social media feeds lit up with both scorn and derision coming from my interventionist friends and praise and thanksgiving coming from my non-interventionist friends. While I am a very vocal non-interventionist and am glad a deal with Iran was reached rather than not, I find myself in the […]
In 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor no one sat around wringing their hands and wondering “why did they do this to us?” Instead, they responded that if the Japanese want war, we will give it to them. They then declared war and went off to fight. Compare that with today when we have […]
We used to occasionally hear of Christian persecution taking place around the world, and it was disturbing but never on the scale we’re seeing today. ISIS is brutally slaughtering not just hundreds, but tens of thousands of Christians, Jews and other dissenters who oppose its repressive version of […]
Last week the first inquests opened into the deaths of the British citizens killed in the Tunisian massacre.
On Friday, a minute’s silence was held across the UK during which British Prime Minister, David Cameron, bowed his head in a display of pious indignation. Cameron has declared a “generational struggle” against the likes of those […]
American Sniper is a great book. It explains how a war should be fought and what a real hero looks like. It is easy. Obama is not a hero. He has never put his life on the line and he never will. And the art of fighting a […]
Judy Miller aka Judith wrote an interesting book. She called it The Story. And I guess her claim to fame is she hunted for the WMD’s in Iraq. Not sure why she was there. And she appeared on TV defending her position, but she is a writer […]
Brave, beleaguered Egyptian protesters post-Morsi. Benefitiaries of $1billion in […]
Only our bumbling Republicans could take the number one issue we have against Obama, losing to Islamic terrorism, and turn it into George W. Bush’s fault. Beginning with Jeb Bush, several Republican presidential candidates said recently they would not have gone into Iraq militarily had they […]
Jonathan Keiler’s interesting piece in the American Thinker on The Collapse of Arab Nationalism is misnamed. It is not that I disagree with most of Mr. Keiler’s assertions, but that the central premise of the title is that Arab Nationalism exists at all. It doesn’t, except for a […]
Having debated leftist veterans of the United States Armed Forces, one detail of their ethos is nauseatingly clear: if they served during wartime, they were entitled by proxy to be considered exceptional American citizens. Most overwhelmingly are, and thank God for that. But just because one served his country during Vietnam where scores […]
