How The Free World Should Deal with Dictatorships

Dictatorships use their connections to the free world to get unearned respect, steal technology and money, and spread propaganda. The best solution would be to achieve the highest degree of separation possible between the free world and the unfree world.

Hillary Clinton’s Hissy Fit

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.

Why Obama Wants an Anti-Gay Defense Secretary

Barack Obama wants to appoint an anti-gay former U.S. Senator, Chuck Hagel, as the next Defense Secretary. Back in the Clinton Administration, Hagel opposed the appointment of an openly gay man to be ambassador to Luxembourg. At the time, Hagel said: “They...

Death of a Navy SEAL

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...

How the U.S. Appeases Iran

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....

Why America is More Vulnerable Than Ever

A strong country militarily and defense-wise presupposes a strong country economically. Simply put: There is no way to fund a system of defense without a strong, vibrant private economy. A strong and vibrant economy presupposes rational economic policies. Rational...

“Negotiating” From a Position of Blackmail

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...

The Needless Casualty

It is because of the bankrupt nature of altruism that events such as those on June 28, 2005 in Kunar province occur, and no one can explain the rationale for 19 dead American servicemen.

Foreign Policy “Experience”

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...

Photo Op for Terrorism at Ground Zero

Why did Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad want a "photo op" at Ground Zero? Doesn't he hate the United States and everything it stands for? If not, then perhaps he aims at peace more than we assume? As I always say: Look at what people do, not at what they say....

Washington’s Pro-Hamas Foreign Policy

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,...

The Islamist Threat To Civilization

In reacting to the Islamists’ ongoing cartoon Jihad, most commentators have focused on the issue of free speech. This is natural, and necessary, since eradication of free speech is the most immediate risk; and certainly without free speech there can be no defending...

What Can One Do About The Latest Islamic Attack on Western Values

Several friends have asked me what they can do in response to the latest Islamic attack on free speech and Western values. I have a few thoughts, but would very much welcome additional suggestions from readers. To begin, I note that the West already has all the...

Ostracism

Earlier this year, when the Ward Churchill essay became news, my initial reaction was that he should be charged with a crime such as ‘treason’ or ‘aiding and abetting the enemy’. But through discussion with friends, I realized my reaction was wrong, and that his...

The Foreign Policy of Guilt

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...

President Bush’s “Sensitive” War

President Bush, raising high his mantle of a resolute commander-in-chief, has lambasted John Kerry for promising to fight a "sensitive" war. But no one has asked: what are the facts? Is President Bush himself fighting anything other than a "sensitive" war? From the...

Iranian Nuclear Program: Will Israel Save Us?

The Iranian state is rushing headlong into disaster and I'm not referring to an imminent invasion by the United States. Iran is developing nuclear weapons and is attempting to filibuster international agencies which are attempting to monitor Iranian actions. For the...

Outsourcing Foreign Policy and “The International Community”

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...
