Cold War Tactics to Stop Iran

The time is well overdue to respond to IRGC atrocities with the language of force that Iranian leaders only understand.

Noxious Nominations: The Four Horsemen of the American Foreign Policy Apocalypse

Smart people can make bad judgments; regular people with common sense often make bad judgments less often. But stupid, arrogant people with terrible ideas are a disaster.

A Bad Pick for Secretary of Defense

I fear that if Israel ever faces existential danger such as that threatened by Iran, Hagel might just say that he is not the Defense Minster of Israel.

Outside the Territory of Reason

The ability to perceive and make difficult choices is fundamental to the survival of a country.

How to Use American Influence

U.S. influence is markedly less than we – or our enemies – think it is, or ever thought it was.

US Mideast Paradox: My Friend who Acts Like an Enemy is my Enemy

A large part of the problem with Obama’s policy is that he not only treated enemies as friends and did not pressure supposed friends that acted like enemies, he joined them.

Mr. President, What Are You Thinking?

How many times do we have to hear statements like 'the Jews have too much Power' before we realize that the people saying it are anti- Semites?!

You Don’t Have to be Jewish to Oppose Hagel for Defense

Chuck Hagel writes his own narrative, in which threats aren’t really threats and policies that actually work are just horrible.

The Salafi Crusades

The Salafi political victories, militia victories and terror attacks are all part of the same phenomenon, and it is about time that we confronted it for what it is.

Israel Facing Weak US Economy, Foreign Policy, Following Elections

With President Barack Obama reelected there is every reason to believe that he will continue the tax, regulatory, and economic policies of his first term. That means the U.S. economy is unlikely to improve quickly, steadily, or even at all during the next four years. The problem is not just Obama’s own strategy on these issues but also the lack of business confidence in his plans.

Romney Stumbles on Foreign Policy

Barack Obama has a weak record in the Middle East, but one would not learn this from the debate, where Mitt Romney praised Obama's achievements ("It's wonderful that Libya seems to be making some progress"), agreed with Obama more than he disagreed, and rarely pointed out his failings. Presumably, Romney took this mild approach to establish his likability, competence, and suitability to serve as commander-in-chief.

Victimhood as Foreign Policy

Sadly, it appears that the Israeli foreign policy establishment has given up on convincing the international community as to the essential rightness of the Zionist enterprise. Rather, by attempting to push the issue of Jewish “refugees” from Arab lands to the top of the U.N.'s agenda, Israelis abdicating the moral high ground in favor of sinking into a battle of victimhood narratives with the Palestinians.

Our Egyptian Ally: More Confusion from Obama

Soon after the attacks on American embassies in Egypt and Libya, Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan criticized President Obama for lack a clear and forceful message to the world. Soon after, the administration provided another example of why this was true, with Obama stating that Egypt was neither friend nor foe, while the State Department confirmed that Egypt is indeed an ally.

Steps to Disempower Iran

Despite the news of Canada's decision and Baird's justification for breaking diplomatic ties with Iran, much more action needs to be taken by Western nations. For example putting Hizbollah on the EU's terror list.

Hezbollah Supporter Franklin Lamb Urging the US to Forge Israel-Free Mid-East

An article in the August 28 "Foreign Policy Journal" entitled "US Preparing for a Post-Israel Middle East" claims to be based on a leaked document from a CIA staffer, commissioned by the US Intelligence Community, comprised of all four branches of the military, the Coast Guard, the Departments of State, Treasury, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the FBI and the National Security Agency. The document "conclusively reveals" that the CIA thinks Israel is the greatest threat on the face of the Earth to the interests of the United States.

‘Targeted Assassination’ by the U.S. Security Establishment?

Last week, a Foreign Policy article by Mark Perry shows American military intelligence officials and diplomats being snide, cutting, and condescending – both toward Israel and toward Azerbaijan, a country that sits on Iran's border and has its own serious problems with the Iranian style of radicalism exported to it.

Why ‘Peace Process’ Champion Changed His Mind

WASHINGTON - Depending on your view of the Middle East and the Obama administration, Aaron David Miller is either a hero or a turncoat.
