Breaking: Report of Russian Troops In Moldova and Near Romania

An anonymous source in Moldova has reached out to inform me that, beyond current reports that Russia might be taking Moldova, in point of fact Russian troops are already there, near the city of Cahul, and only about 3 kilometers from the Romanian border. I can only release these photos asking that readers believe me when I say my source is reliable. It very much appears that these are legitimate, folks, although I have no current...

“Crimea has always been a part of Russia.”

Holy crap. When Walter Russell Mead wrote that Vladimir Putin has been working right out of the Hitler playbook, I found the point provocative but perhaps overstated.

The Israelis were always the convenient whipping boys of authoritarian regimes...

To our Veterans: you honored us and you deserve better

Unlike my good friend Paul Elam, who is himself a US Army veteran, I do not believe the majority of wars America has fought in the last 75 or so years (the real ones, not the phony ones like the War On Drugs) have been fought for commerce or imperialism or any of those other things we commonly hear asserted in “liberal” and libertarian circles. Indeed, I find it incredibly naive to believe that any dictatorship anywhere in...
