    Cameron Rightly Draws a Line in the Sand on an EU Army

    The United Kingdom sagely blocked attempts by the European Union to develop an EU army at a recent EU Council meeting in Brussels. Long the dream of EU bureaucrats, an EU Army would undermine NATO, transatlantic cooperation, and, ultimately, European security. British Prime Minister David Cameron made it very clear … More

    Will President Obama Call the London Attack Terrorism?

    President Obama refused to call the London terror attack terrorism yesterday in his major speech on countering terrorism. In fact, he did not even utter the word “London” once.

    Obama Administration Refuses to Label London Attack as Terrorism

    Yesterday’s appalling attack on a London street in the middle of the day, which left a British solider dead, was a barbaric act of terrorism perpetrated by Islamist fundamentalists.

    Benghazi Exposes Failures of Obama Doctrine

    President Obama’s aggressive response to legitimate questions about Benghazi at his news conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron—calling these important investigations a “sideshow” and a “political circus”—exposed an Administration with little substantive argument on its side.

While the European political elites in Brussels are … More

    Obama Disappoints on the Falkland Islands

    This week in 1982, Argentine forces were probably preparing their equipment and checking plans ahead of their invasion of the Falkland Islands, to happen a couple of weeks later. Thirty years on, even after heaping cringe-worthy amounts of lavish praise on the Obama Administration during his recent visit, British Prime … More

    Obama Pays Tribute to Himself During Angela Merkel's White House Visit

    The visit of German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Washington has attracted little attention in the US media, perhaps further proof that Berlin barely ranks as a world power these days, and consistently punches under its weight in international affairs. Compared to both David Cameron and Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel is a … More

    Enduring Alliances Matter in Times of Crisis

    The Franco-American-British coalition leading military intervention in Libya has demonstrated the cardinal rule of international security: enduring alliances matter. Ultimately, when the chips were down and the rebel stronghold in Benghazi was under threat, it was a coalition of long-standing allies that rallied behind one another to enforce a no-fly … More
