“Today’s neocons are nothing more than new age Progressives of the sort that existed in both the Republican and Democratic Parties until the rise of Woodrow Wilson’s presidency.”
“America faces a world of severe threats with rapidly growing capabilities to threaten the United States—from space. A succession of American administrations have watched the threat grow over the last 30 years and done little to deter it. Now the threats are metastasizing. The solution, as Donald Trump has shown since 2016, is in nationalism—that is, space nationalism.”
“Investing in space-based missile defense will be the leapfrog that the United States needs to maintain its dominance and secure itself from a world gone haywire.”
“By placing a reliable missile defense system in orbit; by potentially placing non-nuclear offensive weapons in orbit, American deterrence would be assured, and our competitors would be put on their heels. A missile defense system in space would neuter the threat that nuclear weapons pose, and offensive strategic weapons in orbit would hold our rivals hostage, in much the same way that nuclear weapons held the world hostage in the Cold War—minus the risks to our people.”
It’s time that America take a backseat in European geopolitics. We’ve got bigger fish to fry. By stepping back and encouraging states like Poland to build their own nuclear arsenals and ABM systems, America can trust that our friends will be protected–without having the American taxpayers shoulder the brunt of the burden.
Many in the West have trouble understanding Vladimir Putin. Part of the problem is that Mr. Putin’s background is murky. Yet, I believe that if one wants to have a window into his worldview, one should look to former KGB head and Soviet Premier Yuri Andropov. Both Andropov and Putin are more similar than many realize and that should worry us.
