Will someone please call the Kremlin ASAP and ask them to remove all copies of the movie “Top Gunski” from the ready rooms of Russia’s fighter pilots?
Their aerial acrobatics are dangerously out of control.
Not only is somebody going to get killed unnecessarily, but the jet jocks’ capers could easily precipitate an international crisis — or worse — between two of the…
News that the United States is sending combat troops back to Europe beginning next February to deter potential Russian aggression against NATO pretty much takes Team Obama’s Russian “reset” policy off life support, doesn’t it?
I’d like to say “RIP,” but I’m more of the mind to say, “Good riddance.”
It all started so hopefully in 2009 with then-Secretary of State…
It’s understandable to put a laser-like focus on the horrific bombings in Brussels that resulted in more than 30 deaths and hundreds of injuries to innocents, including Americans, at the hands of Islamic State terrorists.
But it’s also important to step back and survey the broader Islamic State (aka ISIS and ISIL) scene. Unfortunately, like the news from the Belgian…
In the continuing saga — going back almost seven years now — of Team Obama’s quest to end the “Cold War” with Cuba, the White House trumpeted last week that the president is heading for Havana next month.
Just another bad idea whose time has come, I guess.
Obama will be the first U.S. president to go to Cuba since Calvin Coolidge in 1928 — and with the trip coming in…
Last month, Asia’s nonstop nuisance, North Korea, went “nuclear” with an atomic test; this month, it went “ballistic” with its launch of an Unha (“Galaxy”) missile carrying a Kwangmyongsong (“Bright Star”) satellite into space.
Talk about anger management problems!
Fortunately for us, January’s nuclear weapons test seems to have fallen shy of being the megaton-yielding,…
As if they didn’t have enough to deal with already, the Pentagon has a new problem to panic about: the rise of Islamic State (aka ISIS) affiliates in Afghanistan and Libya.
While we’ve known that ISIS has been spreading beyond the Middle East, creating allies and claiming “provinces,” there has been limited U.S. military activity against it outside the Syria-Iraq…
Listening to President Obama’s State of the Union speech this week, I couldn’t help but feel that he dealt with foreign policy and national security issues like the cop who doesn’t want a bunch of “rubberneckers” at an accident or crime scene.
“Move along now folks … nothing to see here.”
But, in fact, there’s plenty to see here and we, as the American people, aren’t…
Well, it looks like the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have decided to kick off the New Year by throwing another log on the already-roaring fire that is burning much of the Middle East.
A bigger blaze that engulfs even more of the region isn’t out of the question.
The latest crisis revolves around Riyadh’s mass execution of 47 people last…
One of the White House’s latest initiatives on the
Islamic State (aka ISIS or ISIL) fight is to dispatch Secretary of Defense Ash Carter to the Middle East to drum up support for beating the terrorist “army.”
Talk about “Mission: Near-Impossible.”
Don’t get me wrong, I support the president naming allies that are aiding the anti-ISIS effort (France, Germany and the…
After the San Bernardino terror attack, it’s getting awfully hard for anyone to argue that President Obama is fully on top of what may turn out to be this century’s epic struggle — the fight against violent Islamist extremism.
Like many Americans, I found it painful to listen to the president’s Oval Office speech on Sunday calling on us to stay his chosen course in…
It distracts America from today’s life-and-death threats of terrorism.
President Obama certainly knows how to use a red-hot news hook to highlight his agenda.
This week, during the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris, he appeared to conflate climate change and terrorism. Coming hot on the heels of the ISIS massacres in the “City of Lights,” that…
No matter how President Obama disses or dismisses the media, Congress, his critics or skeptics — on both sides of the aisle — about his strategy against the Islamic State, the ISIS crisis isn’t getting any better.
That’s certainly no comfort on the busiest travel day of the year and the beginning of the holiday season, when folks would rather think of the warm embrace…
Despite the deep erudition of this newspaper’s readers — especially of this column — we suggest everyone take a deep breath over their concerns about the possibility of terrorism here aided and abetted by the visa waiver program.
Everybody: In with the good air; out with the bad. Great!
Now, the current worry is that Europeans who have traveled to Syria, Iraq,…
It was a lot like one of those holiday family get-togethers.
You know, one of those annual gatherings that are well-intentioned expressions of love and affection but are simultaneously pregnant with tensions built up over the years among the attending relatives.
When that trying day of togetherness at Grandma’s house ends without the expected fusillade of familial…
There’s a lot of confusion about the announcement by the White House late last week about the upcoming deployment of U.S. special operations forces to Syria, especially after President Obama repeatedly promised — going back to 2013 — no “boots on the ground.”
If you’re perplexed by the news, don’t feel bad, there’s no shortage of people who are mystified by Team…
