Who exactly is in charge of American foreign policy? President Obama or Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? Any middle-school aged student would easily be able to answer this, but the Republican Congress seems to think differently.
I remember when cop cars were all big, white Chevy sedans. And police officers dressed in light blue uniforms. They wore innocent enough black, cabbie looking hats, and I was never afraid to approach them with a question, or a problem. And then I grew up. Now they drive midnight black, stealth vehicles, usually equipped with mean grill guards.
This is the truth that President of the United States is bringing a real change in the shape of world politics through his truth and this is the reason that now people of tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border are fully supporting him. Actually corrupt rulers of Pakistan are still using the menace of terrorism for earning dollars.
ISIS, the Qur’an and the Bible: Fundamentalists versus Modernists“ISIS is No. 1 enemy of Islam” -- Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-SheikhAs of this writing every notable Islamic organization in the world has condemned ISIS, not only for the attacks in Paris, but also the ISIS inspired San Bernardino mass killing by husband and wife, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.
We go to war because it’s so easy. It’s as simple as that.
Benjamin Netanyahu's reelection left many of those who desperately want a peaceful solution to the decades old Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a sense of despair. The Prime Minister's victory, in many peoples eyes, virtually closes the door on any resolution between the two sides for the foreseeable future with no way of knowing when or if talks between the two sides will start again.
"The first time you shoot someone, you get a little nervous. You think, can I really shoot this guy? Is it really okay? But after you kill your enemy, you see it’s okay. You say, Great. You do it again. And again. You do it so the enemy won’t kill you or your countrymen. You do it until there’s no one left for you to kill. That’s what war is.
Cuba may soon be open again! After five decades of a failed policy that few could justify by any reasonable means, President Obama announced that it was time to move America in a new direction and begin to normalize relations with the island state. The bombshell announcement was made after months of secret negotiations between the Obama and Castro Administrations.
Donald Trump upended years of American foreign policy concerning nuclear weapons development by calling for a new arms race. Trump started the controversy by tweeting that "the United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes." When asked to clarify his comments he doubled down and said "[l]et it be an arms race. We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all."
Senator John McCain, one of the most ardent and vocal supporters of a United States military strike in Syria, was caught playing video poker on his phone during a Senate hearing on President Obama's request to use military force in Syria. Senator McCain has been front and center calling for the US to respond with force to send Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a strong message after it was determined that his government used chemical weapons against its own citizens, but seems to have been unconcerned about the witness testimony from Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, along with Secretaries Kerry and Hagel.

“I want to create every opportunity for women to be able to serve this country .?.?. but I do have concerns about women in front-line combat. I think that could be a very compromising situation, where people naturally may do things that may not be in the interest of the mission because of other types of emotions that are involved. It already happens, of course, with the camaraderie of men in combat, but I think it would be even more unique if women were in combat. And I think that’s not in the best interests of men, women or the mission.”
