The Western Way of War

Jun 25, 2010 — Caroline Glick

General Stanley McChrystal has paid a huge price for his decision to give Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings free access to himself and his staff. But he performed a great service for the rest of us. US President Barack Obama fired McChrystal—his hand-picked choice to command NATO forces in Afghanistan—for the things that he and his aides told Hastings about the problematic nature of the US-led war effort in Afghanistan. But by acting as he did, McChrystal forced the rest of us to contend with the unpleasant truth not only about the US-led campaign against the Taliban in Afghanistan. He told us the unpleasant truth about the problematic nature of the Western way of war at the outset of the 21st century.


Weathering the approaching storm

Jun 18, 2010 — Caroline Glick

Israel is endangered today as it has never been before. The Turkish-Hamas flotilla two weeks ago precipitated a number of dangerous developments.

South Korea, North Korea, Israel and Iran

May 21, 2010 — Caroline Glick

On Thursday the South Korean government did something important. It told the truth about North Korean aggression. On March 26, a North Korean submarine attacked a South Korean naval corvette with a torpedo. Forty-six South Korean sailors were killed in the unprovoked attack.

Israel and the Axis of Evil

May 30, 2009 — Caroline Glick
