Introduction to The Failure of America’s Foreign Wars

by
(Excerpted from The Failure of America’s Foreign Wars, published by The Future of Freedom Foundation in 1996) America, too, had its global calling, according to the social engineers.

More Mideast Bills

by
Surveying the history of England in The Rights of Man , Thomas Paine noted that "a bystander, not blinded by prejudice nor warped by interest, would declare that taxes were not raised to carry on wars, but that wars were raised to carry on taxes."

Terrorism … or War?

by
As U.S. government officials never tire of telling us, we live in a dangerous world. Terrorism especially is an ever-constant threat, even on American soil.

Breeding Terrorism

by
If 2000 comes in with a terrorist's bang, the blame must be squarely placed at the feet of our foreign-policy makers.

Clinton’s Quagmire

by
"The man of system ... seems to imagine that he can arrange the different members of a great society with as much ease as the hand arranges the different pieces upon a chess-board; he does not consider that the pieces upon a chess-board have no other principle of motion besides that which the hand impresses upon them; but that, ...

Bill Clinton: World Cop

In a major foreign-policy address delivered a few months back in San Francisco, President Bill Clinton solemnly affirmed that everything everywhere in the world is the business of the United States.

In Whose Interest Is This War?

by
It has been fascinating to watch the Clinton administration defend its war against Yugoslavia. Those folks really can't make up their minds, can they? The confusion and ambivalence reveals much about their own ethical philosophy. The need to go to war against Yugoslavia was at first presented as a selfless matter. President Clinton told the American ... [click for more]
