Refusing To Honor Its Commitment To Taiwan Would Harm The United States

Michael Anton makes a compelling case for not resisting a Chinese takeover of Taiwan with force. I agree with the vast majority of his historical and strategic assessments and arguments. But I disagree that abandoning a U.S. policy commitment to help Taiwan maintain its independence is a wise choice. Americans have spent too much of the past several decades embroiled…

Joe Biden Left Behind A Humanitarian Crisis In Afghanistan

When I read this news, it broke my heart: an Afghan mother sold one of her newborn twins, a baby boy, to a childless couple for $104. She had no food for her baby boy or her seven other children. Her husband works as a day laborer, earning only $1 a day. No mother wants to be separated from her child…

Iran Cements Its Advantage While Biden Sleeps

Six months into President Joe Biden’s term, several sanctions against Iran were lifted and new ones imposed as the administration seeks to cajole Iran back to the negotiating table over their nuclear capacity. While the messaging from Washington, and the signaling from Tehran, was mixed, one thing was clear this past July in the southwestern city of Ahvaz: people were…

World Ignores Investigation Finding France Was Complicit In The Rwandan Genocide

As we recoil at the American debacle of the Afghanistan exit and hope to never see such a national disgrace repeated, we should be wary of the ability of cynical political leaders, abetted by corrupted media, to hide the truth long enough for a world-weary public to forget and move on. “Can’t happen in a Western, liberal democracy!” you say.…

Biden’s Weakness Will Result In Aggression. Here Are 4 Likely Foreign Policy Scenarios

Even prior to the stunning display of American failure in Afghanistan, President Biden appeared slow-witted and spineless on crucial U.S. national security matters. For example, Biden handed Russia’s Vladimir Putin gift after gift: extending the START Treaty, lifting Nord Stream 2 pipeline sanctions despite bipartisan legislation and essentially surrendering Ukraine to Russia.

3 Myths About Why The Afghanistan Withdrawal Is Such A Disaster

An apocryphal story claims that, before the Afghanistan War, a British intelligence officer group went to Russia to study Soviet archives about Afghanistan.

China’s State Media Is Weaponizing The U.S. Afghan Exit Against Taiwan

China’s state media is weaponizing the United States’ exit from Afghanistan to threaten war against the island nation of Taiwan. An editorial by the state-run Global Times attempts to exploit the withdrawal by arguing that not if, but “once” China invades Taiwan, the United States will not come to the island’s defense due to the financial costs a potential war could…

Stop Blaming The United States For Communism’s Effects On Cuba

As a first-generation Cuban American from Miami, Florida, my upbringing, daily discourse, and education have been overwhelmingly influenced by the Cuban struggle. To me, it’s always seemed straightforward: Cuba’s communist system has inflicted human and civil rights violations, family separations, and sexual, religious, and ideological persecution of minorities since 1959. Yet upon leaving my Cuban American community, I encountered individuals…
