Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's state visit to Washington today was undoubtedly planned as a celebration of his young democracy. It now looks more like a show of U.S. solidarity with a badly wounded and bleeding country whose pleas for help have been ignored by the West.
Being in the UK has made Scotland and Scots richer, freer, and safer than they were, would have been, or, quite possibly, will be on their own. But, since the English themselves no longer seem to be very British, the unionists have not been bold enough to remind voters of this.
British politicians are using fear and chastisement in their campaign against Scottish independence, rather than providing compelling examples of how Scotland benefits from the union.
Representative Justin Amash’s (R-MI) tweet about widespread Republican opposition to the amendment to arm Syrian rebels is both doubtful and ill-advised.
The Islamic State is a threat to the United States of America, and that is the primary reason we must defeat it. The United States has capabilities that no other state or group in the world has, and that is why we must lead this effort.
Obama seems more concerned with distinguishing what he is doing in Iraq from what the George W. Bush administration did than he is with following a war strategy that will defeat the enemy.
The Islamic State is a clear and present danger to the security of the U.S. We must therefore pursue an iterative approach that tests basic assumptions, develops our understanding, and builds partnerships with willing parties on the ground, especially the Sunni Arabs in Iraq.
Very few people are willing to say openly that we can live with ISIS and contain it, but a great many people are advocating policies that will have precisely that effect.
President Obama strategy's against the Islamic State is based on what the U.S. is doing in Yemen, combining targeted airstrikes with support for a local partner, a counterterrorism strategy which Obama claims has been successful and has made the U.S. safer. Unfortunately, those claims are not accurate.
