As the nation’s top diplomat, Madeleine Albright did not really do diplomacy. She proclaimed America’s power and right to do as it pleased.
The Biden Administration’s lies, errors, and miscalculations over Russia will probably hurt the American people more than Putin.
You don’t have to be a Putin apologist to find fault with Western narratives on Ukraine. American interests depend on appreciating the bigger picture.
Though we have the might to meet force with force, Ukraine’s fight is not our own. We have no land to conquer and no victory to attain.
The solution to the Ukraine mess is not sending jets and establishing no-fly zones that guarantee our participation in a devastating worldwide war. The solution is the negotiating table and peace.
America First means keeping America out of unnecessary wars promoted by the liberal elite for nation-building in which we have no strategic interests.
If history is any guide, we will look back at this moment with regret once the passion of the hour has passed.
Hope to God the imbecile-in-chief doesn’t blunder us into World War III.
We have given Moscow the tools to galvanize its population and further deepen the dividing lines between East and West, significantly exacerbating tensions and increasing the likelihood of war.
America cannot defeat Russia and China without the help of other nations. And America cannot defeat the Left without the help of liberals.
They would much rather shout “Slava Ukraini” than “God Bless America.”
Biden’s return to the long-standing aggressive neoliberal/neocon foreign policy promises to keep our focus tuned to a foreign channel while our own signal devolves to static.
If conservatism means "America First," count me a conservative. But if conservatism means "America Only," count me out.
American foreign policy is buckling under its own contradictions. We no longer have the luxury of decadence.
Vladimir Putin is certainly worthy of condemnation. But that does not mean Donald Trump was wrong when he observed it would be “a good thing, not a bad thing” if America got on well with Russia.
Biden’s war of choice against Russia is not justified by America’s most fundamental laws.
The first step to take in returning to peaceful and normal relations with Russia will be to reject the Wyoming Republican’s warmongering.
The onus is on the United States, the only so-called responsible superpower, to calmly negotiate with Putin on behalf of his innocent, weak victims.
People of goodwill should be thinking about how to let Russia and Ukraine both save face, end the war, and reach an agreement that accommodates each side’s core interests.
After the current hysteria dies down, we may find the machinations of history still have a way of surprising us.
