Wilkerson: If You Want Ground Forces, Let’s Have a Draft

It’s truly appalling to see how this nation swings over the span of 6 years from being war-weary to having a bloodlust for more of it. I’m sure Roger Ailes is patting himself on the back for his contribution to the war effort. A recent Fox “News” poll showed that 65 percent supported military action […]

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday during a visit to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, that Washington was keeping an eye on Iran’s “destabilizing” actions in the Middle East, a gesture meant to reassure the Gulf kingdom that ongoing nuclear talks with the Islamic Republic would bring stability to the region. Iran’s involvement in the […]

It might seem like Hillary Clinton’s emails are the biggest story in the world right now, but prior to this week, there was an even greater threat to humanity than a MacGyvered-up Hotmail account, and it was called ISIS. This week, Iraqi forces have been conducting an assault on ISIS-held Tikrit, hometown of late Iraqi […]

That worked out real well. Following his first term as Isrel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu testified to Congress on Sept. 12, 2002 as a private citizen, and advised Congress that a U.S. invasion of Iraq would be “a good choice.” LIKE us on Facebook Now read this:Brinker: Ben Carson’s Cringe-Inducing Foreign Policy Ignorance (Mar 25, […]

Afghanistan Marine veteran Hunter Garth (pictured) is tired of hearing “Thank you for your service.” Mike Freedman, a Green Beret, calls it the “thank you for your service phenomenon.” To some recent vets — by no stretch all of them — the thanks comes across as shallow, disconnected, a reflexive offering from people who, while […]

When the Bush Administration emptied the U.S. coffers for their boondoggle in Iraq, there was no shortage of people ready to cash in. While the architects of the Iraq War continue to enjoy freedom, military members and contractors who took part in the massive graft are finally feeling the long arm of justice. Enter George […]

The United States is announcing this to send a signal to ISIS. U.S. forces are amassing and training 20,000 to 25,000 Iraqi and Kurdish forces in preparation for a spring attack to retake Mosul, Iraq from an estimated 1,000 to 2,000 fighters of the Islamic State, or ISIS. In an extraordinary briefing for reporters, an […]

Jeb “I Am My Own Man” Bush, declared today that he would shape his own foreign policy when he gave a speech in Chicago today. However, I’m not sure hiring almost everyone one of his father and brother’s advisors is going to help him very much since they all have blood on their hands after […]

Never mind that Jeb Bush gave a foreign policy speech where he proclaimed, “I’m my own man.” That’s not the impression he gave in 2010.  Wednesday, Jeb tried to distance himself from his brother’s war. In the course of answering questions from the audience, he admitted that 2002 pre-war intelligence about weapons of mass destruction […]

He only wants to talk about the future. That’s nice. But the past got us to where we are now, and it’s not pretty. Bloomberg reports: “I won’t talk about the past,” Bush said in response to a reporter’s question about his foreign policy speech planned for next week in Chicago. “I’ll talk about the […]
