    Courting powerful Jewish donors for the second time in two months, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie called Sunday for a more aggressive foreign policy that defends American values abroad — even in "in some very messy, difficult places." "The rest of the world watches in desperation and hope that America will realize and act upon once again its indispensable place in the world," Christie, a prospective Republican presidential contender, said in a keynote address Sunday at the Champions of Jewish Values International awards gala in New York. "We must lead." He charged that America must represent the strongest military and...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham is one of the strongest advocates of an American military strike against the Assad regime in Syria. He was unhappy when President Obama decided to seek congressional authorization for an attack, and then unhappy when his fellow lawmakers voiced disapproval of the president's plan. Graham believes the diplomatic path chosen by the administration will lead to a debacle. Given all that, Graham now says he will work with a bipartisan group of senators to craft a resolution authorizing the president to use military force -- not against the Syrian regime but against Iran. In an appearance on...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who was elected to his first term with help from the Tea Party in 2010 and who is sometimes cited as a potential GOP vice presidential pick, lauded the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for following their respective visions instead of asserting “narrow American interests” in a speech today on U.S. foreign policy. In remarks at the liberal Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., Rubio sketched the advances made globally since the end of World War II as a result of America’s leadership. “The purpose of the institutions we established, from...

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says the United States must be prepared to use missile strikes and air strikes against the Iranians if they continue their nuclear weapons development program. In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV on the eve of the Michigan and Arizona primaries, Santorum was asked what actions he would take today to address the Iranian nuclear threat. “I would work hand in glove with the Israelis trying to discern the state of the Iranian nuclear program and then I would take actions accordingly,” he says.
  • You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby ( Bill Kristol slobbering over Obama's speech tonight)

    President Obama’s unapologetic, freedom-agenda-embracing, not-shrinking-from-the-use-of-force speech. I knew pretty early on during tonight’s speech that President Obama had rejoined—or joined—the historical American foreign policy mainstream. It was when he mentioned Charlotte (the city, not the spider): At this point, the United States and the world faced a choice. Gaddafi declared that he would show “no mercy” to his own people. He compared them to rats, and threatened to go door to door to inflict punishment. In the past, we had seen him hang civilians in the streets, and kill over a thousand people in a single day. Now, we saw...

    Even as President Obama maintains close to 50,000 troops in Iraq and continues to escalate and expandthe war in Afghanistan, the antiwar movement in America continues to shrink (PDF). So, what happened? Reason.tv visited two antiwar protests—one left-leaning, one libertarian—in an attempt to answer that question. Author and historian Thaddeus Russell and Reason Senior Editor Brian Doherty also weigh in. War, it seems, is a bipartisan venture, which is reflected by the fact that Democrats have a favorable view of Obama’s foreign policy, despite its remarkable similarity to George W. Bush’s foreign policy. And though there have been rumblings of...

    HAVANA (AP) - Cuban President Fidel Castro criticized the Organization of American States and its new Chilean secretary-general, accusing him of using "insolent, interventionist" language to suggest change is needed in communist Cuba. Castro used a three-hour appearance on Cuban state television late Wednesday to lambaste the United States and several other governments around the region that he said were servile toward the United States. Jose Miguel Insulza, a former socialist interior minister in Chile, was widely considered the third and last choice of U.S. officials in the months-long struggle for leadership of the OAS. But Castro appeared to be...

    US policies pose challenge for Communist Party A senior Central Party School official warns of a future for Chinese diplomacy that is fraught with conflict and friction By Jason Leow BEIJING - The Communist Party's 'serious test and challenge' in the coming years will be American unilateralism and its 'new interventionist ideology', a senior official at the Central Party School has warned. The party's legitimacy will also rest on how it keeps faith with socialist practices against the growing capitalist creed, Mr Yu Yunyao, the school's administrative vice-president, wrote in an official journal. In Outlook Weekly, a journal by the...

    Although the 2004 election is barely underway, Conservarives ought to be thinking about how we can redefine the Republican Party once it is over. Say what you will about Bush, McCain, Giuliani, etc., but the Republican Party is our best hope for keeping the nation alive. Thus, it is essential that Conservatives take active roles in helping to shape the Party, because it needs our help, badly. That said, if Conservatives are to do anything to help the nation, we must come to a consensus on historically dividing issues between Paleoconservatives and Neoconservatives. The purpose of this thread is to...
