 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.

With Kim2’s 2011 death, Kim3 claimed the communist throne at age 28. It was believed, having been educated in the West, Kim3 would prove a “kinder, gentler” leader. He has proven the contrary, becoming worse than either predecessor.

Refusing to think about nuclear weapons and warfare will not make the threat go away. Pretending to abolish nuclear weapons through arms control, as the West has been trying to do since 1945, is just another way of not thinking.

Nobody does it better than President Donald Trump. That is, drive the media crazy. And The Washington Post has gone nuts in reacting to the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

As someone who held high-level security clearances for 25 years — including 19 years with the CIA — I’m very happy President Trump fired James Comey. This should have happened on Mr. Trump’s first day in office.

James Comey was one of the Albatrosses and land mines Obama had left for President Trump. ... Most recently, he seemed to be attempting to even commandeer the power of the United States presidency.

Like his fellow “transies,” France’s new president has a low regard for such concepts as national borders, identity, culture and – inevitably – security. He has embraced continuing immigration and the Sharia-supremacists who are exploiting it to transform France beyond recognition.

Dr. Mark Green – a West Point graduate, retired Army flight surgeon, combat veteran, and TN State Senator – has withdrawn his nomination by Pres. Trump to become the next Secretary of the Army. Though this story has been relatively ignored by the mainstream press, it is important for Americans to understand what happened, and the growing McCarthyism of the Left.
