Live by the Sword and Die by the Drone

Uncle Sam did not raise the sword. Uncle Mohammed did, more years ago than anyone can count, and the sword has never been lowered since. As long as Mohammed is at the gates, Sam cannot put down the sword and spend all his time discussing monetary theory or social justice. Not if he expects to still be wearing his head by morning.

Obama runs war on his own for politics – no military input

Obama is so infallible he doesn’t need to consult the military about the war. It’s the politics that matter to Obama, not the troops, not America, just Obama. Can we afford four more years of his DUHplomacy?

Obama’s “Arab spring” turns ugly – “One Nation for New Holocaust”

Obama’s peace through weakness, appeasement and capitulation may please the leftists who hand out Nobel prizes for hope and change but left the world on the brink of another war.

Send in the military equivalent of Dog the Bounty Hunter. Let Blackwater do the job, and see what free enterprise can accomplish.

“To Declare [Kinetic Military Action]”

The president certainly can’t derive the authority to bomb Libya from the commander-in-chief clause. As Hamilton explained in Federalist 69, that provision merely indicates that the president is the “first General and admiral” of US military forces. Important as they are, generals and admirals don’t get to decide whether and with whom we go to war.

Celebrating James Madison

For Madison, the whole point was to bind government through a Constitution, enumerated powers, and ambition pitted against ambition. His was a noble vision of politics in service to individual liberty. Let us hope that we are not living “after the Madisonian Republic.”

Troops chafe at restrictive rules of engagement, talks with Taliban

The restrictive rules of engagement that they have to fight under have made serving in combat far more dangerous for them, while allowing the Taliban to return to a position of strength.

Blow WikiLeaks Off The Internet

It’s not a matter of free speech, but life and death. If not done quickly, people will die. People we’ve promised to protect. People who will be the future of their country.
