Ukraine's Poroshenko asks US, others to send weapons, put pressure on Russia. Could it happen?

September 15, 2017  •  Fox News

Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko called upon the United States and other nations to increase pressure on Russia to withdraw from Crimea and other territory it seized in its 2014 invasion by continuing the economic sanctions against Moscow and sending an international peacekeeping force to stop Russian soldiers and weapons from entering the country.

Speaking at the opening of the 14th annual Yalta European Strategy conference in Kiev, Ukraine's president delivered a hard-hitting speech criticizing Russian president Vladimir Putin and calling upon the U.S. and other Ukrainian allies to supply more advanced weapons to counter Russia's aggression. "History teaches us that Russia cannot be trusted," he said.

Bohemia's Strange Trip

Summer 2017  •  City Journal

San Francisco, that most forward-looking of cities, has looked backward this summer. Half a century after an estimated 100,000 young Americans descended on the 20 blocks surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury Streets to "tune in, turn on, and drop out," the city has commemorated the birth of America's counterculture. A frenzy of nostalgia—exhibitions, concerts, conferences, lectures, installations, street fairs, walking and "magical mystery" bus tours—has celebrated all things "hippie." More than 50 of San Francisco's best-known institutions—the California Historical Society, de Young Fine Arts Museum, University of California at Berkeley, San Francisco State University, San Francisco's ballet and opera companies, dozens of art galleries, and private merchants—paid tribute to 1967's Summer of Love, iconic shorthand for a decade that not only shattered the city's and the nation's cultural and political norms but also gave birth to a countermovement that elected Ronald Reagan as California's governor—and, in 1981, the nation's president. In 1966, Reagan ran explicitly against student activism in Berkeley, which was then merging with the growing youth movement across the bay in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood to create the hippie counterculture.

To defeat North Korea, Trump (and his team) need to quit making empty threats, focus on a coordinated strategy

As expected, members of the United Nations Security Council met in emergency session on Monday to condemn North Korea's test of what it claimed was a hydrogen bomb, its sixth and by far its most powerful ever. Then came the unexpected.

Trump's new bottom line: Don't lose Afghanistan by withdrawing

August 21, 2017  •  Fox News

President Donald Trump has now officially embraced and expanded the 16-year-old war in Afghanistan which candidate Trump denounced as a waste of American blood and treasure.

In his first major foreign policy speech in prime time, Mr. Trump unveiled what he called a new strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia, which he called "principled realism." But many of its key components remain infuriatingly vague, such as the number of additional troops he intends to deploy in Afghanistan and how much more money -- if any -- he intends to spend there. Moreover, some of the goals he espoused Monday night seemed inherently contradictory.

President Trump is on vacation but that won't stop the Twitter storms

August 8, 2017  •  Fox News

Donald Trump is now officially on a working vacation, and not a minute too soon. Above all, he should give his Twitter thumbs a rest.

Although his administration had a significant foreign policy accomplishment this weekend – the United Nations' Security Council's unanimous approval of the toughest-ever economic sanctions against North Korea to punish Pyongyang for its ongoing nuclear weapons program - President Trump distracted press attention from that achievement with a Twitter storm on Monday morning of no less than seven early bird attacks on the press.
