South Korea Falls for the Trap

“Be ready, friends: in the coming months and year the North will continue to walk softly until it believes it has separated the South from the United States fully (and/or until the Americans become distracted with something else). One way or the other, war is all but assured at this point, as it is unlikely that President Trump will favor the humiliation of America at the hands of either North Korea or China (or South Korea for that matter). The amount of military equipment and resources that have been deployed (and continue to be deployed) to South Korea indicate that the Trump administration is going to enforce de-nuclearization at all costs–even if it must go it alone.”

Balancing the Equation with China by Arming Taiwan

“My recommendation would be to give Taiwan scores of cruise missiles (or to encourage the Taiwanese to build massive amounts of their own cruise missiles), coupled with the EA-18 Growlers (as well as the E-2D Hawkeyes that support the Growlers) that would be needed to suppress and overcome the Chinese S-400 threat. Taiwan has a handful of Hawkeyes and would need considerable amounts of Growlers to make their S-400 countermeasures fully effective. The United States must make selling Taiwan these upgraded systems a major priority in its relations with Taiwan.”

U.S.-Russia Counterterrorism Ties On the Mend; Western Media Doesn’t Notice

“Don’t listen to the Western press or the Left: Trump’s move just saved us. The administration now needs to build on this and work toward bringing Russia back to the Western camp, to help us stand opposed to not only Islamic extremism, but to form a united front against rising China, a country that threatens Russia even more than it does the United States. The United States and Russia will never see eye-to-eye on every issue. But, we can work to ensure that our differences are mitigated as we are linked together by a larger degree of shared interests. What’s more, together, the two greatest nuclear, Christian powers can–and must–defeat our shared enemies.”

How War with Iran Strengthens Russia

In this lecture, geopolitical analyst, Brandon J. Weichert, details how the increases in volatility in the global energy market (thanks to greater tensions with Iran) will disproportionately benefit the Russian Federation, which is almost entirely dependent on the price of fossil fuels being high, in order to make Russia strong.

How War with Iran Benefits Russia

“The Islamic Republic of Iran wants nuclear weapons to solidify its growing regional hegemony in the Middle East. Such an event will destabilize the already precarious regional order. The Trump Administration is committed to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear arms at all costs–even potentially risking war with the Islamic Republic. If conflict with Iran were to erupt, Iran’s long-time strategic partner, the Russian Federation, would disproportionately benefit.”

How Hercules’ Victory Over Antaeus Should Inspire American Relations With China

“This is a long game that must be played with élan and forcefulness. We should seek to further enmesh China in a global economic system that surrounds them by American allies. American policymakers should reread the 11th labor of the old Greek myth of “The Twelve Labors,” with Hercules in mind to formulate better policies regarding China going forward.”

Free Kurdistan Now

“Failure to recognize Kurdistan is not only an abdication of moral leadership, it is a geostrategic error for the United States. Without Kurdistan as a buffer state between Iran’s expansion into the Levant, as well as a check against Turkish and Russian consolidation of the region’s energy sources, we will permanently lose the region to our adversaries. Backing the Kurds to the fullest is in America’s best interest.”

In 2020, China Comes For Taiwan

“Otherwise, in a few short years, the United States might wake up to a surprise attack more devastating than Pearl Harbor over Taiwan–and the United States just might lose such an engagement. Whoever wins, the resulting conflict would be costly and devastating on an order not experienced since the Second World War.”
