At American Greatness, I outline where the U.S. should go following the Trump Administration’s attack on Syria and how it applies to the China-North Korea dynamic.
The old adage, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” should not be the basis of foreign policy. What’s more, not all autocracies are created equally. Read more to find out why
