Krauthammer: Obama vs. Putin has been a total mismatch

"The United States does not view Europe as a battleground between East and West, nor do we see the situation in Ukraine as a zero-sum game. That's the kind of thinking that should have ended with the Cold War." - Barack Obama, March 24

Krauthammer: Only forceful action will hold off Putin

WASHINGTON - The president of the Los Angeles World Affairs Council challenges critics of President Barack Obama's Ukraine policy by saying "What are you going to do, send the 101st Airborne into Crimea?" Not exactly subtle. And rather silly, considering that no one has proposed such a thing.

Con: Were the Afghan and Iraq wars worth it?

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Our withdrawals from Iraq, and now imminently from Afghanistan, are not the reason that we find ourselves dealing with governments in both these countries that are not doing as we think they should.

Pro: Were the Afghan and Iraq wars worth it?

WASHINGTON - Former secretary of state, national security adviser and Nobel Peace Prize winner Henry Kissinger is, by all measures, a foreign policy heavyweight. At a recent black-tie dinner, he stood - stoop-shouldered and peering imperiously over his signature thick, black-frame glasses - and remarked: "Unilateral withdrawal is not victory."

Charles Krauthammer: Want an Iraq hypothetical? Try this one on

Ramadi falls. The Iraqi army flees. The great 60-nation anti-Islamic State coalition so grandly proclaimed by the Obama administration is nowhere to be seen. Instead, it's the defense minister of Iran who flies into Baghdad, an unsubtle demonstration of who's in charge - while the U.S. air campaign proves futile and America's alleged strategy for combating the Islamic State is in freefall.

Jonah Goldberg: Bush stumbling so far on his ‘joyful’ run

By now everyone has had their say about Jeb Bush's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. The consensus is that Bush misheard Megyn Kelly's "knowing what we know now" question about the Iraq war. I'm not convinced.

Ruben Navarrette: Stephanopoulos still linked to Clintons

In 1999, a week after Al Gore claimed that he created the Internet, Bill Clinton appeared at the Gridiron Club's annual dinner. Having recently been stung by a former close adviser who signed a deal with a television network and penned a memoir distancing himself from the 42nd president, Clinton joked that he, too, was an inventor: "I invented George Stephanopoulos."

Charles Krauthammer: Fast track on trade is a win Obama needs

That free trade is advantageous to both sides is the rarest of political propositions - provable, indeed mathematically. David Ricardo did so in 1817. The Law of Comparative Advantage has held up nicely for 198 years.

Jonah Goldberg: Identity politics is always tied to one's views

Imagine it's 2007 and a prominent journalist is interviewing then-Sen. Barack Obama. "Senator, people are really interested in you and your identity. I just wanted to ask you as a historical matter, when you filled out your application to Columbia, to Harvard Law School, did you list yourself as an African-American?"

Kathleen Parker: Political faith wars heat up on campaign trail

It is nearly axiomatic that presidential contests tend to shine a harsh light on conservative Christians, inasmuch as they are viewed as the Republican Party's base and are, therefore, deemed fair game.

Kathleen Parker: Abuse of free speech worth defending, not celebrating

The recent spectacle of Pamela Geller, the erstwhile journalist who organized a provocative Prophet Muhammad cartoon-drawing contest in Texas, gives pause to even the most passionate defenders of the First Amendment.
