  • What You Aren’t Supposed To Know About America’s Closest Ally, Qatar

    The Qataris, and their ruling al-Thani family, are slavers, narcotics traffickers, and financiers of international terrorism. They also happen to be America’s closest ally under Obama. When analyzing the foreign policy interventions of the Obama administration with respect to the Middle East, it is hard to reconcile their respective approaches Libya (2011) and Iraq (2014). In 2011, Obama justified the military action to remove Muammar Gaddafi on the basis of anticipated genocide by the Gaddafi regime. Speaking at the National Defense University on March 28, 2011, Obama explained “I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves...
  • How the IRS Allowed China Nonprofits to Buy Code Pink

    Frontpage Magazine ^ | Aug 14 2023 | Daniel Greenfield
    The ‘House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party’ was in session when a Code Pink activist disrupted it by holding up a sign reading, “China Is Not Our Enemy.” “The United States needs collaboration, not competition, with China,” she insisted. Collaboration was the correct term. While most people stopped paying attention to Code Pink in the aftermath of the Iraq War, the leftist anti-war group never went away, but beyond the backing for Venezuela, Iran and the other usual terror states, it’s become a vocal defender of China. The level of collaboration between Code Pink and China is unusual...

    Former President Trump’s campaign described Iowa State Senator Jeff Reichman (R) as “lily-livered,” for flipping his endorsement to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) following Trump’s attack on Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) earlier this week. In a statement to The Hill, Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung stated, “There is no room for weak-kneed and lily-livered people on Team Trump.”

    The Free Press ^ | March 21, 2023 | Faisal Saeed Al Mutar
    But I don’t share the conventional wisdom that the U.S. invasion, which began 20 years ago this week, was a colossal failure. ... My brother’s murder led me to start fighting against al-Qaeda in West Baghdad—as much as a 15-year-old could. Sunnis, in close conjunction with U.S. forces, had organized a small army called Awakening Forces, and a friend recruited me. They gave me a cell phone, which I used to send coordinates of al-Qaeda forces to our commanders. I was part of a larger operation to rout al-Qaeda from the city. We succeeded. ... This is why, despite everything,...

    Robert Serocki Jr. spent a little less than a year fighting on the front lines in the first Iraq war. The Mesa man spent more than 25 years fighting its impact on his body and his soul. Serocki, 52, has chronicled his struggle with post traumatic distress syndrome in three books, and each week he broadcasts an internet radio show at in the hope of helping other men and women recover from PTSD. Now he has published a new book titled “The Blacksmith.” Inspired by an old Civil War photo that looked uncannily like him, the book offers a...

    Editor’s Note: Lawfare’s Board of Directors has published a post regarding this article and our editorial standards here. In the United States, the latest Iranian protests have sparked a kind of debate in which we argue fervently about whether the U.S. should tweet its support or just shut up. At the risk of making the Trump administration look moderate, I think we can choose between more than waving our hands and sitting on them. Remember, when the Iranian regime decided it didn’t like U.S. activities in Iraq, it found considerably more direct ways to express its disapproval. It just started...

    Washington Times ^ | 10.13.11 | Bill Gertz
    A U.S. intelligence report for the first time links China’s largest telecommunications company to Beijing’s KGB-like intelligence service and says the company recently received nearly a quarter-billion dollars from the Chinese government. The disclosures are a setback for Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd.’s efforts to break into the U.S. telecommunications market. The company has been blocked from doing so three times by the U.S. government because of concerns about its links to the Chinese government. The report by the CIA-based Open Source Center states that Huawei’s chairwoman, Sun Yafang, worked for the Ministry of State Security (MSS) Communications Department before joining...

    On Monday, President Biden announced that U.S. troops in Iraq would be out of the combat business at the end of the year, but said the troops would “continue to train, to assist” Iraqi Security Forces starting in January 2022. This represents the latest in a multi-generational unwillingness on Washington’s part to acknowledge reality and get our troops completely out of Iraq – and keep them out.

    Although it may seem unbelievable today, the Iraq War was initially very popular. In March of 2003, on the eve of the invasion, as many as 76 percent of Americans supported the war, and the tide of public opinion did not turn against it for several years.Those of us old enough to remember that period can attest to the pervasive atmosphere of groupthink. Americans had been deeply shaken by the 9/11 attacks a year and a half earlier, and the national spirit was hawkish. Dissenters risked being called unpatriotic, even treasonous – as the band formerly known as the Dixie...

    With the election of Joe Biden, Democrats and their supposedly anti-war base now own the war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, and any other military conflicts which suddenly appear in the near future. President Trump spent the last four years trying to end those wars while successfully keeping the United States out of new conflicts. For his efforts, he was called a fascist, an asset of Russia, and a traitor to America. Trump brokered historic peace deals throughout the Middle East, yet Democrats and their agents in the media repeatedly called him a threat to democracy. As a United...

    When news broke that Mohammed Kinani's son’s killers, Blackwater private military contractors hired by the U.S. government in Baghdad, were pardoned Wednesday by President Trump, Kinani said it was like losing his 9-year-old boy all over again. "I don't know what I did to Blackwater,” Kinani told ABC News. "Did I know Blackwater before? No. Why did this happen to me?" President Donald Trump pardoned four private military contractors who were found guilty for murdering 17 Iraqi citizens, including two children, in an attack that also left over 20 injured. The decision was praised by the contractors' lawyers but has...

    A reprioritization of America’s strategic interests would cement the legacy of the first president in the era of great-power rivalry.n a recent memo advocating a swift U.S. drawdown from Afghanistan, Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller gave shape to the fundamental political stand of the Trump administration—realism and restraint. “We are not a people of perpetual war — it is the antithesis of everything for which we stand and for which our ancestors fought. All wars must end,” the memo read. This comes after a rapid purge in the last couple of weeks, in which President Trump dismissed Defense Secretary Mark...
