Red Lines & Lost Credibility

Sometimes the simple lessons which can be drawn from international affairs, are better. So one of the most important steps in justifying a non- interventionist foreign policy, involves assessing whether overseas wars generally achieve the goals they originally set out to. The United States along with other Western countries, once united to destroy supposed chemical weapons… Continue reading Red Lines & Lost Credibility

US Now Admits Syrian “Rebels” Have Used Chemical Weapons

The propaganda of war is something to behold. Back in April, the world branded Bashar Al- Assad a human rights abuser of the worst sort in purportedly using chemical weapons. And under this near- universally held pretext, interventionists cheered on Trump’s impulsive missile strikes into Syria.

President Trump’s brash escalation with North Korea

Speaking to reporters at a New Jersey golf course, President Trump promised to unleash ‘fire and fury like the world has never seen’ on North Korea, should it continue to threaten the United States.

We need to talk about Julie

The Spectator Australia, by Tina Faulk, May 13, 2017: There is a news picture of Foreign Minister Julie Bishop that sticks in my mind. Bishop, lithe, agile (that word again!) jogs, smiling and confident, with her sweaty, be-suited Chinese bodyguard in his polished leather shoes, toiling behind, on an official visit to China. There’s another one too, Bishop, fetchingly… Continue reading We need to talk about Julie
