Why would Russia not ally with Iran?
Anti-Russian Sunni are on Russia’s southern border and within the Republics of the former USSR that Putin would like to rebuild. Shia Iran would love to destroy Sunni islam and rebuild the Persian Empire. Russia would love permanent warm-water ports on the Mediterranean (Shia Syria) and the Indian Ocean (Shia Iran). Put an Iranian ally in charge of that? Why not? By foolishly destroying Iraq, an ignorant America destroyed the only regional opponent capable of stopping Iran.
Together Russia & Iran can rid the region of Sunnis; doing so is in […]
Both Foreign Affairs and CATO are writing on the issue of forward deployment of American military forces.
They are starting from the wrong place.
Deployment of military forces is driven by strategy, which is downstream of politics, serving a political goal.
Rather than discuss the best way, or where, to deploy forces, why not backup and discuss the goal? Once the goal is agreed upon, strategy follows.

It is equally foolish to think our rights exist for any reason other than our willingness to destroy any enemy attacking them. […]
Two of my three kids were born in the mid-1990s. America – the country that defeated the two most modern and powerful military forces in history, across the entire planet, on land, sea and air, in 3-1/2 years – has been in ground combat with illiterate, unorganized, untrained, ill-equipped savages for nearly their entire lives. They have no recollection of an America not at war.
This is shameful.
My dad was born in 1912, raised a Quaker, and fought in the Pacific Theater of WW2. Why? He was an American. My mom was born in 1930, orphaned at 5, raised […]
In speaking of the Dawn of Man it is intriguing that the Left demands Darwin and the Right, Creationism, yet today reverse their roles. The Right wants to kill the invasive species attacking our niche of Liberty and Law; and the Left rejects defending this niche, demanding a form of Creationism: this is the way our world was created; quit trying to change the natural order – which is a slide to totalitarianism, with islam the current invasive species destroying this niche that evolved over thousands of years.
When an invasive species appears – the occupier of the niche being[…]
