It Wasn’t Supposed To End This Way…

October 22, 2016 by


By LTC Allen West (U.S. Army Ret) ~ There was initial euphoria over the news of a coalition advance against ISIS in Mosul. However, anyone who knows a little bit about tactical operations will tell you a few determined fighters in an urban setting can cause massive chaos. And what’s even more dangerous is an […]

U.S. Must Up Anti-Terror Game

June 16, 2016 by


Dramatic offensives needed to topple ISIS By Dr. Peter Brookes ~ I hate to bring this up as we mourn the innocent victims of the Orlando shooting, but I can’t help but feel that if we’d made greater progress in snuffing out the Islamic State, we might not be talking about another terror attack on […]

Will An Atomic ISIS Finally Get Obama Off The Dance Floor?

April 5, 2016 by


By Deroy Murdock ~ President Obama resembles the airheaded young lady depicted in Don Henley’s 1984 rock hit. As her surroundings grow increasingly perilous, all she wants to do is dance. Obama similarly debased himself and humiliated his country via a tango in Buenos Aires, a baseball game with Cuban despot Raul Castro in Havana […]

After Brussels Attacks, US Must Not Repeat Europe’s Mistakes

March 25, 2016 by


By James Carafano Ph.D.~ The first question security professionals around the world ask after a horrific terrorist attack is: What’s next? The second question is: How to stop it? Americans woke up to news that Europe had been hit again, with reports of two bombs in Brussels that killed and injured scores. The attacks come […]

Broadcasting Reform Is Urgently Needed To Fight ISIS

March 1, 2016 by


By Helle Dale ~ The U.S. government desperately needs new and better tools to fight the information war against the Islamic State (ISIS) and other terrorist networks. One such new tool, The United States International Communications Reform Act (H.R. 2323), which was passed last May by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, remains in waiting mode and […]

The Tribal War With Islam

January 12, 2016 by


By Daniel Greenfield ~ All wars are wars of equals. That’s true in the sense that each side attacks the other in terms of how it defines itself as an entity. States try to destroy other states. Religions fight other religions. Ethnic groups and races engage in genocide. They do this even when the other […]

What The Hell Are We Doing?

December 19, 2015 by


By Tom McLaughlin ~ If America would ask its young men – and now women – to fight a war, the rest of us must be willing to go all-out to win it. If we’re not, it’s immoral to send them. Soldiers and citizens must understand what’s at stake and have confidence in our commander-in-chief […]

Can The Left Learn To Love ISIS?

December 13, 2015 by


By Daniel Greenfield ~ The extremist group carved out territory for its utopian state through ruthless brutality and a steady flow of international recruits who arrived believing that the new terror state represented the fulfillment of their belief system. The world was horrified as the radicals who had seized towns and cities showed off severed […]

What A Commander-In-Chief Should Do

December 11, 2015 by


By Colonel Kenneth Allard (U.S. Army, Ret) ~ There are times when I think Barack Obama understands every word we say; but then, at other times, not so much. His speech from the Oval Office on Sunday night was a classic case in point, a confused muddle from beginning to end. Rather than rallying the […]

This Is A War?

November 26, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ A metric of Barack Obama’s disastrous weakness: Retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney … spent 35 years in uniform and rose to the role of assistant vice chief of staff, the number three position in the Air Force…. He said the first step is for Obama to admit the […]

Take Off The Gloves And Level ISIS HQ

November 24, 2015 by


By Deroy Murdock ~ Let’s be generous and say that President Obama is half-hearted in fighting the ongoing battle against ISIS and the wider War on Radical Islam. “We have a military strategy that is putting enormous pressure on ISIL through airstrikes,” Obama told journalists in Antalya, Turkey, on Monday. He added: “And so we […]

This War On The Islamic State Won’t Work For A Long Time

November 22, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ A good assessment of what’s needed to defeat the Islamic State militarily. The bad news is that it will take a long time, and much more resolve than shown so far: For military planners, destroying the terrorist group’s headquarters and crippling its fighting force is a relatively simple assignment, say strategists: […]

Kissinger: Crush The Islamic State

October 19, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger says it is urgent to crush the Islamic State: So long as Islamic State survives and remains in control of a geographically defined territory, it will compound all Middle East tensions. Threatening all sides and projecting its goals beyond the region, it freezes existing […]

Whistleblowers Claim Obama White House Uses ‘Doctored’ Intel Reports

October 10, 2015 by


By Jim Kouri, CPP. ~ Some of the U.S. intelligence community’s top analysts reportedly informed the Pentagon watchdog that their reports have been systematically edited to backup President Barack Obama‘s — and his national security team’s — assertions that the war on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as more successful than it actually is, according to news reports […]

How Obama Lost The Middle East

October 4, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Charles Krauthammer on how Barack Obama threw away American power and prestige in the Middle East: The ruse was transparent from the beginning. Russia is not in Syria to fight the Islamic State… The whole point of Russian intervention is to maintain Assad in power … Consider: When Obama became president, […]

To Defeat ISIS, We Need A Leader Who’s Not Obama

October 3, 2015 by


By Peter Brookes ~ When President Obama said at the United Nations on Tuesday that “defeating ISIL requires—I believe—a new leader,” I thought for a brief moment I’d finally found something on which he and I could agree. Then I realized he wasn’t talking about his own leadership. The president was actually talking about the […]

Cooking The Books

September 14, 2015 by


By Colonel Kenneth Allard (U.S. Army, Ret) ~ Here’s something to think about as we commemorate Sept. 11, 2001, an epic intelligence failure that led directly to the worst American defeat since Pearl Harbor. The current Democratic front-runner in the presidential sweepstakes, described as a liar by many American voters, conceivably faces indictment for mishandling […]

‘War’ On Islamic State A Failure: First Anniversary Of Speech Nothing To Celebrate

September 12, 2015 by


By Dr. Peter Brookes ~ A year ago today in a nationally televised address, President Obama spoke to the nation about his intention to “degrade” and “ultimately destroy” the Islamic State (aka ISIS) in Iraq and Syria. Current U.S. strategy consists of an air campaign against the Islamic State, training the Iraqi army to fight […]

U.S. Has Power To Stop Train Wreck In Iraq, Syria

June 15, 2015 by


By Dr. Peter Brookes ~ The unfolding political, humanitarian and security disaster involving Iraq, Syria and the Islamic State is like watching a slow-motion train wreck. You desperately want to look away, but you can’t. While President Obama has been tagged with not having a “complete strategy” for dealing with the Islamic State, based on […]

De-Islamization Is The Only Way To Fight ISIS

May 27, 2015 by


By Daniel Greenfield ~ Obama can’t defeat ISIS with soft power, though ISIS could beat him with soft power assuming its Caliph ever decided to agree to sit down at a table with John Kerry without beheading him. Iran has picked up billions in sanctions relief and the right to take over Yemen and raid […]

The Self Delusional West

October 20, 2014 by


A Dry Bones Cartoon ~ The fact that the U.S. administration and NATO are surprised by Turkey’s refusal to assist in the battle to stop the Islamic State is shocking! . . . and a sign of how self-delusional Western leadership has become. Read More by Yaakov Kirschen at Dry Bones .

Abandoning Kurds And Jews

October 14, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Watching the events affecting the Kurds in Kobani, Syria, under attack from the Islamic State (ISIS), it occurred to me that they have much in common with Zionists, Jews who established Israel in 1948. Turkey’s president Recep Tyyip Erdogan dislikes Kurds and Jews with equal fervor. The Kurds, estimated to be […]

ISIS Learns From Progressive Trolls To Target U.S. Military Personnel Online

October 11, 2014 by


By LTC Allen West (U.S. Army Ret) ~ We reported previously here about the use by ISIS of social media to threaten our U.S. military personnel and their families, which appears to be a tactic in full force. ISIS has learned the progressive socialist tactic of “trolls” – something about which I’m quite familiar – to flood […]
