          LET GO AND LET GOD As children bring their broken toys with tears for us to mend... I brought my broken dreams to God because he was my friend. But instead of leaving him in peace to work alone... I hung around and tried to help with ways that were my own. At last I snatched them and cried, "How could you be so slow?" "My child," He said, "What could I do? You never did let go."

The AFGSC did not immediately respond to The Hill's request for comment about the reported inventory. At the same time, the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) have been called to examine the matter, CNN reported....

    The 2017 Niger ambush that killed four U.S. soldiers was the result of “individual, organizational and institutional failures," according to a new report from the Pentagon. The eight-page summary released by the Department of Defense on Thursday detailed the findings leading up to and during the ambush and made recommendations to improve guidance for the planning and approval of military operations. Those recommendations included a full review of equipment requirements and improving coordination with forces from U.S. allies. During a press conference with reporters Thursday, Army Maj. Gen. Roger Cloutier, the lead investigating officer, praised the heroic actions of the...

    Europe can no longer rely on the United States to protect it, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said today, urging the bloc to take its destiny in its own hands. "It is no longer such that the United States simply protects us, but Europe must take its destiny in its own hands, that's the task of the future," she said, after US President Donald Trump left traditional allies scrambling by ditching the landmark Iran nuclear deal.

    One of the most vivid lectures I remember from studying the Russian Revolution during my junior year abroad at St. Antony's College, at Oxford, was the one on what sealed the tsar of Russia's fate.  My superb tutor and lecturer, Dr. Harold Shukman, said it was the scene in St. Petersburg, where the rather insufficiently studied photos of the era showed thousands of troops, thousands, hanging around, idle, doing nothing.  They were deserters, and their choice to walk away showed the extent of just how far the tsar was gone as a force of government.  This scene became the tinder and backdrop...
