    Its been made official that there was a terrorist attack on the United States December 6th at the Pensacola Naval Air Station in Florida. The attack that killed three and wounded eight was perpetrated by Saudi Air Force Lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrami who was undergoing military training. The confirmation today came not from the President of the United States, nor the Secretary of State nor the Secretary of Defense, but from Attorney General William Barr..... Special Commentary Back before 9/11 terrorism was seen as strictly a law enforcement matter in the days of President Bill Clinton. Now it looks like...
  • Don’t Repeat The Last Two Decades Of Foreign Policy Idiocies With Iran

    The best way to neutralize Iran is to have them overstretch. An older, forgotten grand strategy where adversaries bleed each other is in the Western interest. Here’s all one needs to know about what is happening in Iraq: As France 24 reported, “Iraqi security forces made no effort to stop the protesters as they marched to the heavily-fortified Green Zone after a funeral held for those killed in the US air strikes, letting them pass through a security checkpoint leading to the area.” Consider that for a moment, and let the anger surge through your veins.These are the same people...
  • No, Combat Troops In The Middle East Don’t Counter China’s Rise

    Chinese activity beyond its borders does not inherently threaten America. The twin narratives of Trump ‘abandoning’ the Middle East and any Chinese presence as a threat to America are false. While his critics claim the president “eyes the exits” from the Middle East, they excoriate him for “abdicating a strong U.S. role” in the region, which some claim is enabling China’s rise. This common characterization of Trump’s foreign policy may be worrisome, but it is also demonstrably wrong.Far from eyeing the exits, Trump continues a concerning trend of deepening U.S. military involvement in the Middle East. As important, Chinese activity...

    Three years gone, thousands of lives lost, tens of billions in debt-funded spending, and we’re right back where we started, with a permanent entanglement in the longest war in U.S. history. President Trump plans to pull about 4,000 U.S. troops from Afghanistan early in 2020, officials in his administration reported in mid-December, a partial withdrawal that would put American force levels in our longest war exactly where they were when Trump entered office. Three years gone, thousands of American and Afghan lives lost, tens of billions in debt-funded spending, and we’re right back where we started, with an apparently permanent...

    The Islamic State group has released a video claiming to show the killing of 11 Christians in Nigeria. IS said it was part of its recently declared campaign to "avenge" the October deaths of its leader and spokesman in Syria. No details were given about the victims, who were all male, but IS says they were "captured in the past weeks" in Nigeria's north-eastern Borno State. The 56-second video was produced by IS's "news agency" Amaq. It was released on 26 December and analysts say it was clearly timed to coincide with Christmas celebrations. Nigeria's government has not commented on...

    A German woman suspected of being an “Islamic State” member has been repatriated along with her three children, according to German media and a Kurdish official. A child from the US has gone through the same process. Syria’s Kurds completed the handover of three German children and their mother, as well as a toddler from the US, to their respective ministries, a Kurdish official confirmed on Saturday. Abdelkarim Omar, a senior official with the Kurdish authorities in northeastern Syria, said the transfer of the individuals had taken place on Friday.

    In high school, Jamal Khashoggi had a good friend. His name was Osama bin Laden. “We were hoping to establish an Islamic state anywhere,” Khashoggi reminisced about their time together in the Muslim Brotherhood. “We believed that the first one would lead to another, and that would have a domino effect which could reverse the history of mankind.” The friendship endured with Jamal Khashoggi following Osama bin Laden to Afghanistan. Khashoggi credited Adel Batterjee, listed at one time as one of “the world’s foremost terrorist financiers” by the Treasury Department, with bringing him to Afghanistan to report on the fighting....

    Islamic State brides stab 16-year-old girl and one-legged man to death for leaving Islam OCT 15, 2019 2:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER In this case these women were not behaving in an “extremist” manner. The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any...

    An SAS officer armed with a shotgun has killed five jihadis during a dawn raid, it has been reported. The intense fire fight was over in just seven seconds, and quickly led to the militant group's surrender of the stronghold. The covert operation took place on an Islamic State outpost in Baghdad, Iraq. Several other terrorists emerged from the building but immediately surrendered and began panicking as two of the bodies didn’t have heads – they thought they were about to be executed.'

    The first time a band of Islamic State militants “visited” the monks, they presented the monks with a kind of suggestion, in a nonthreatening manner: “Why don’t you become a Muslim?” Already, the four monks at the ancient Syriac Catholic Mar Behnam Monastery in Khidr, Iraq, had felt they were under siege. Ten days earlier, on June 10, 2014, five carloads of militants roared through the peaceful road leading to Mar Behnam, announcing through megaphones that the Islamic State was in control. Not long before that, the Iraqi army had withdrawn from a checkpoint near the monastery, located southeast of...

    Well, shocker, Democrats are wrong about the border crisis again. It may come as a surprise to these left-wingers, but when there are hordes of people trying to enter the U.S. through our southern border, many of whom are succeeding, terror groups will take notice and draft plans to get their operatives in by similar means. And yes, it appears the Islamic State has arrived in Central America—and I don’t think it’s for some rest and relaxation on the beaches. Luckily, Nicaraguan  Security forces captured them (via Reuters): I’ve been angrily assured that this sort of thing never happens and...

    Burkina Faso: The New Land of Islamic Jihad and Christian Slaughter "The assailants asked the Christians to convert to Islam, but the pastor and the others refused. They ordered them to gather under a tree and took their Bibles and mobile phones. Then they called them, one after the other, behind the church building where they shot them dead." — Local Christian, reported by World Watch Monitor, May 2, 2019.
