  • China's Naval Game-Changer

    Military Superiority: By the end of the year, China could deploy an anti-ship missile capable of hitting U.S. aircraft carriers at long range. The naval dominance that American foreign policy depended on may be at an end. When the naval planners of Imperial Japan were laying out the attack on Pearl Harbor, the major question on their mind was — where are the American carriers? In the end, their failure to find them doomed Imperial Japan to defeat. Since World War II, every president alerted to a crisis has asked the same question — where are the carriers? These floating...
  • Praise for Palin

    The American Spectator ^ | July 9, 2010 | Quin Hillyer
    To her great credit, Sarah Palin is absolutely right on target in her insistence on maintaining a strong defense. Yesterday's Washington Post featured a little report about how Palin is "waging a battle inside the "tea party" movement to exempt defense spending from the group's small-government, anti-deficit fervor." Good for her. The GOP Class of 1994 in Congress had too many members who did the same thing Palin warns against: letting their admirable enthusiasm for lower deficits/balanced budgets get in the way of a commitment to putting national defense first. Palin rightly warns against abandoning the central part of the...

    One of the things that’s starting to emerge on the Republican side of the political struggle is a world view that can be called the Palin Doctrine. It’s remarkable that none of the other leading figures in the party has come to be associated with a particular foreign policy trajectory. Can one think, say, of a Pawlenty Doctrine or a Daniels Doctrine or a even a Perry or a Schwartzenegger or a Romney Doctrine? They each have their own bona fides, but developing the outlines of a coherent foreign policy view isn’t one of them. Governor Palin, by contrast, has...
  • Duncan Hunter for President 2012 – Reasons 10 through 17

    10. Although Duncan Hunter’s name is nearly synonymous with the Border Fence on the US-Mexico border (at least the part of the REAL fence that is working), he should also be known for his stances on abolishing the ‘anchor baby’ laws, beefing up the numbers of Border Patrol officers, scuttling all benefits to illegal aliens, snuffing out the notion of “sanctuary cities”, and, most importantly, standing firm on his position that illegal aliens must be deported. It is the same position he came to Congress with in 1980. It has not changed. When asked during his 2008 presidential primary run...
  • Obama's Naive Berlin Speech (Dennis Prager On How The Left Overlooks Evil Alert)

    Townhall.com ^ | 7/29/2008 | Dennis Prager
    To better understand Sen. Barack Obama, his speech before 200,000 Germans in Berlin is one good place to start. As we shall see, however, it does not leave one secure as to the senator's understanding of history, of America's role in the world, and what to do about evil, among other important issues. Obama: "At the height of the Cold War, my father decided, like so many others in the forgotten corners of the world, that his yearning -- his dream -- required the freedom and opportunity promised by the West." Promised by the West? Or promised by America? It...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 1/01/2008 | Zalman Shoval
    'The separation fence won't be a political border," declared prime minister Ariel Sharon in his 2004 Herzliya speech. Ehud Olmert has repeated this more than once. Recently, however, Defense Minister Ehud Barak has proposed not only treating the security barrier as a de-facto border, but also offering money to evacuate the Jews living on the eastern side of the fence. Barak's spiel is obvious: He aims to convince part of the public that he is a hawk, and the other part that he is the bona fide standard-bearer of the peace camp. And it isn't only Barak. Vice Premier Haim...

    Life in southern Israel is unbearable. Since last January, on average, 6.3 mortars and rockets have been fired from Gaza on southern Israel every day. As Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i warned the heads of the communities around Gaza last week, due to the improvements in the Palestinian arsenal since Israel vacated Gaza two years ago, the Palestinians now field missiles and rockets with extended ranges that place 130,000 Israelis under threat of missile attack. Wednesday, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi made clear that if Israel wishes to secure its citizens there is only one thing it...

    From the desk of Gen. Chuck Yeager: November 20, 2006 To my Fellow Americans, Congressman Duncan Hunter is the best candidate for President of the United States of America that I know - he has integrity, tenacity, courage, and diplomacy.

  • Musharraf's book reveals alliance motivation

    Pakistan weighed up its chances of surviving a US military assault before joining the "war on terror" after the September 11, 2001 attacks, President Pervez Musharraf says in a new book. In the collection of memoirs, In the Line of Fire, General Musharraf relates how he was told by then-US secretary of state Colin Powell after the attacks, "you are either with us or against us". He says it was quickly obvious his decision was academic. "I war-gamed the United States as an adversary," General Musharraf wrote. "The question was: if we do not join them, can we confront them...

    The American Enterprise ^ | 4/17/03 | Ralph R. Reiland
    Well, as it's turned out, it was hardly "another Vietnam," hardly a quagmire, and it looks like the Arab Street got the message that the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof that the Ango-Americans are back in the driver's seat again. Here's how the managing editor of the Arab News put it on the day the Iraqis pulled down the statue of Saddam: "America now rules the world, either directly or by proxy; and there is nothing anyone can do about it." It was the same from the editor of the Daily Star in Beirut, Ramy...
