Memo to Trump: Can’t We Learn from the Roman Model?

While the world is focused on the upcoming meeting between President Trump and dictator, Kim Jung Un, attention on what Iran, North Korea’s closest ally, is doing is absent from the front-page news coverage. Count me among those who were appalled by the eight years of the Neville Chamberlain-like appeasement model peddled around the globe by the Obama administration.

But can we please have a more serious and consistent approach to the Middle East and especially now in Syria?

Cleaning Up Obama’s Wartime Messes – 5 Moves Trump Can Make to Succeed

In early April of this year, at a joint news conference with King Abdullah of Jordan, Trump said Syria is now his responsibility, added that Syria had crossed "more than a red line," and that he inherited a worldwide mess and intended to fix it.

Grief in the Disappearing Christian Middle East

On April 8, I attended a wedding reception where I was seated next to an attendee who felt the need to let me know my views regarding resurgent militant Islam were, in his view, misguided. Given that we all know about the Inquisition, the Crusades, the Hundred Years War and all the other myriad sins [...]

With the Iran deal -- the JCPOC (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) -- now being reviewed by Congress, many of us worry that Obama and team will prove to be even worse negotiators than was Neville Chamberlain, the man whose contribution to the 1938 Munich Pact with Hitler’s Nazi Germany guaranteed World War II.
