If we would not risk war with a nuclear-armed Russia over Hungary or Czechoslovakia half a century ago, why would we risk it now over Estonia?

This week marks the 75th anniversary of World War II, as last month marked the 100th anniversary of World War I. Thus, it is a good time for Eugene Windchy's "Twelve American Wars: Nine of Them Avoidable."

Where has Hillary Clinton exhibited the acumen to suggest she would be a wise and savvy steward of U.S. foreign policy in a disintegrating world?

George H. W. Bush made an ally of Hafez al-Assad in Desert Storm. Why not make an ally of his son against ISIS?

The recent semi-hysterical talk of an "existential threat" to the "homeland," and the dread specter of "an American city in flames" is vintage war party, designed to panic us into launching a new war.

Obama wants history to rank him among the transformational presidents like Lincoln, FDR and Reagan.
