Counterpoint: Why Should North Korea Believe the United States?

No one knows what President Trump believes about the Koreas. He has made many contradictory comments while Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham have been talking up the likelihood of war.

Hillary Clinton’s NSC Running Trump’s Iran Policy

National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster's guidance to President Trump that he should falsely certify that Iran is in compliance with the Obama nuclear deal amounts to looking the other way on Iran’s violations and is little different than what Hillary Clinton would have done if she had won the 2016 election.

Trump’s Quiet Live-Fire Confrontation With Iran

U.S. forces have opened fire on Iranian-backed forces in Syria at least three times since May. Three of the incidents took place at al-Tanf, a remote desert outpost near the point where the Syrian, Iraqi and Jordanian borders meet.

There is no magic solution to the North Korea Problem. But military action should be a last resort, reserved for preempting a direct and imminent threat that doesn’t presently exist. Washington must avoid triggering the Second Korean War.

Time To Reveal Obama’s Secret Side Deals With Iran

If President Trump and Secretary Tillerson don’t expose the truth about Obama’s secret side deals with Iran, Americans will remain in the dark, not only about what commitments to Iran Obama bound us to, but whether the Trump administration has been honest when they said Iran is complying with the deal and that there would be a break with Obama’s dangerous policy of appeasing the Islamist terrorist state.
