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.

Hope Builds for the Coming Muslim Reformation

The Dangers Facing Trump and Those He Will Govern

On inauguration day, due to his predecessor’s many foreign policy failures, Donald Trump will inherit a much more dangerous world than the one Barack Obama inherited eight years previously.

The Flying Killer Robots and Psychological Warfare

The recent killing of the Taliban Chieftain, Mullah Akhtar Mansour, by a drone inside the Pakistan province of Baluchistan, is a striking reminder that we have entered a futuristic world where war is waged by flying killer robots and that we have witnessed a massive leap forward in the history of human conflict.

If You Broke It, You Own It

At the outset of the first Iraq war, Colin Powell warned President Bush 41 that he saw no exit strategy for the U.S. if our forces pursued Iraqi troops from Kuwait all the way to Baghdad.
