It would be wonderful if the U.S. could create a liberal future for Afghans who desire to escape the past. But that task is beyond Washington’s capabilities and cannot justify expending more American lives and monies.
The Axis of nuclear weapons and missile technology proliferation between North Korea, Iran and Pakistan represents one of the great undiscussed strategic challenges facing the incoming Trump administration. We here at CHQ believe it has gone undiscussed long enough. It is time that Americans know the truth about the threat and that American policymakers deal with it.
We urge CHQ readers to call Congress (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell your Senators and Representative to oppose funding Obama’s plan to import more jihad to America through the “refugee” resettlement program.
A society in which life and dignity of the human person is not respected is more likely to become a hothouse for hostile ideas and beliefs. Although Americans cannot control policy in Pakistan, they can help highlight a problem that threatens people in that nation and ultimately others around the world.
Military robots and drones are becoming “smarter” and more autonomous. Until the scientific and technical geniuses behind the idea of autonomous armed drones also equip them with a foolproof “Constitution chip” Americans should oppose the deployment of such technology.
Americans should thank Afghanistan's ungrateful President Hamid Karzai for giving Washington a shove.
