 How do we fight terrorism abroad?
At the same time that we are working to secure and defend the American homeland, the United States must also be aggressively waging the war on terrorism abroad. The United States is safer if terrorists never reach our borders and the whole world is safer if they never turn to terrorism at all. Understanding these facts, the United States has developed a two-pronged approach to winning the war on terrorism overseas. First, we must identify and neutralize those individuals who represent threats to American interests. Naturally, some of these people are actual terrorists, with the intention of traveling to the United States or our foreign installations and causing death and destruction. Others are terrorist supporters, including governments, financiers, religious leaders, and instructors, all of whom are essential to the continued implementation and success of terrorism. Their work is as deadly as that of their operational allies and must be stopped if we hope to prevent further attacks.

At the same time that the United States is fighting terrorism where it already exists, it also has developed and implemented a multidimensional approach to preventing the spread of radicalism and the education of new terrorists. Certain conditions generally accompany the decision of an individual to turn to terrorism, including socioeconomic status, integration into the community, level and type of education, and exposure to foreign cultures. While these are not foolproof predictors of potential radical sympathies, they so frequently accompany a susceptibility to radicalization and a willingness to use violence that their association is generally accepted by most analysts. If the United States can reduce the pervasiveness and potency of these factors, it may also be able to control the spread of terrorism worldwide.

President Obama made no secret of his displeasure that Benjamin Netanyahu was reelected to be Israel’s Prime Minister

In fact, Obama supported the Islamic radicals who destabilized states throughout the Middle East, including Tunisia, Libya and Egypt, and did little to prevent Iranian-backed Shiites from overthrowing Yemen—a key ally in the War on Terror.

Admittedly, it has to be pretty bad in Yemen when the world’s most talented, capable and toughest special operations forces are getting the heck out of Dodge — on orders from above, of course.

Following 9/11, the U.S. moved to wartime footing. But the wartime footing did not include the decision to make any significant troop increases.

DACA is Obama’s 2012 executive action which granted protection from deportation to so-called DREAMers — aliens brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.

For thousands of years the Jews dreamed of reclaiming their country. The left had another dream.

While the U.S. government has failed to take action against both these incubators of terrorism for their past transgressions, the families of the Beirut bombing and 9/11 victims have.

When Netanyahu became clear that he would not cave to pressure from Washington to support a Palestinian state, Israelis said "thank you" and swept him back to power.

Unconditional surrender is what the United States should demand whenever we go to war with anyone. Soldiers we send to fight and die deserve nothing less.

The only thing standing in the way of developing them is feverish environmental fear.

To circumvent sequestration, the Budget resolution recreates a Global War on Terrorism fund to escape (but not remove) the sequester caps on the base defense budget.

Obama’s clumsy attempts to interfere may have helped more than hurt Netanyahu.

On Tuesday, the people of Israel spoke. They gave a clear mandate to the nationalist camp, led by the Likud and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, to lead the country.

“The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic.”

Liberals and the community leaders they favor continue to make martyrs out of thugs with criminal records who assault police officers.
