Is Putin's Invasion of Ukraine All About Oil?

The oil and gas producing region of the Dnieper-Donets basin in Ukraine happens to coincide with the eastern region of the country that has a substantial Russian-speaking population.

As Senator Rand Paul said during last year’s demonstrations that overthrew the Islamist government in Egypt, America has a terrible record of picking winners and losers in the domestic upheavals of foreign countries.

The Administration’s Bad Case for a Bad War in Syria

War is not just another policy option.  The American people and their representatives need to insist that Washington’s chief responsibility is to defend America.  Whatever the state of the Assad regime’s chemical weapons, the U.S. should stay out of Syria’s tragic civil war.
