    It’s possible that you could soon be flying into, out of or through Donald J. Trump International Airport. H.R.7845 — “To designate the Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia as the ‘Donald J. Trump International Airport'” — was introduced in the Republican-controlled House on Friday. The bill was immediately referred to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, which is chaired by Missouri Republican Rep. Sam Graves.
  • U.S. announces policy of “massive retaliation” against Communist aggressors (January 12, 1954)

    In a speech at a Council on Foreign Relations dinner in his honor, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles announces that the United States will protect its allies through the “deterrent of massive retaliatory power.” The policy announcement was further evidence of the Eisenhower administration’s decision to rely heavily on the nation’s nuclear arsenal as the primary means of defense against communist aggression. Dulles began his speech by examining communist strategy that, he concluded, had as its goal the “bankruptcy” of the United States through overextension of its military power. Both strategically and economically, the secretary explained, it was unwise...

    Commentary ^ | February 2013 | Elliott Abrams
    As the civil war in Syria enters its third year, there is much discussion of the regimeÂ’s chemical weapons and whether SyriaÂ’s Bashar al-Assad will unleash them against Syrian rebels, or whether a power vacuum after AssadÂ’s fall might make those horrific tools available to the highest bidder. The conversation centers on SyriaÂ’s chemical weaponry, not on something vastly more serious: its nuclear weaponry. It well might have. This is the inside story of why it does not. Relations between the United States and Israel had grown rocky after IsraelÂ’s incursion into Lebanon in 2006, for Secretary of State Condoleezza...

    Israeli Chief of Staff Moshe Dayan arrived in Paris on September 29th, 1956. Four staff officers joined him and would remain in France to plan the pre-emptive attack on Egypt. British Prime Minister Anthony Eden wanted the French to get assurances from Israel that they would not attack Jordan. He was worried that a Nasser-like coup might occur and about pro-Nasser forces winning an upcoming election. Another member of the Israeli delegation, defense official Shimon Peres told the French there would be no attack but strong reprisal raids for the terror attacks coming across the Israeli border from Jordan. A...

    Department of State Bulletin ^ | 1954 | John Foster Dulles
    Fifty-one years ago today, in a speech before the Council on Foreign Relations, an influentual New York-based think tank, US Secretary of State John Foster Dulles outlined what became known as the policy of massive retaliation. He explained to his listeners that the US would no longer allow itself to be drawn into conventional regional conflicts such as the Korean War--or, for that matter, Vietnam--but would reserve the right to respond to Communist aggression with "massive rataliatory poser" applied at places and with means of its own choosing--or, in other words, nuclear weapons might be used directly against the Soviet...
  • John Bolton and the Termites - (libs opposing strong Republican foreign policy goes way back)

    The unholy alliance of leftist groups seeking to keep John Bolton from winning Senate confirmation to be the new U.S. ambassador consists of Democrats, globalist worshippers at the altar of the sacred United Nations, a motley crew of demented liberals huddling in the sanctuary of, and a nest of bureaucratic termites eating away at the innards of the CIA and the Department of State. Democrat senators are leading the charge against Bolton, aided by the one-worlders and the members of the deranged left, all employing the kind of distorted rhetoric which is their stock in trade, but the ammunition...
