Back in the time immediately following Donald Trump’s election, the more reasonable (i.e. non-MSM) professional commentators predicted that the Donald was and is savvy enough to gather around him a good team.
Well, here’s a new fisk of President’s Trump’s choices for our leadership in foreign policy, which the Right Angle fellows dub “The A Team”.
I am a regular follower of the conversations among the three Bill Whittle.com analysts, the fellows who comprise the weekly program “Right Angle”.
This is a short but detailed and pithy (not an easy combination) critique of America’s current path in foreign policy. For the first moment in a very long time, I am not ashamed of our country’s attempt at foreign policy.
And by the way, we’re finally dropping some big bombs on Afhganistan’s ISIS, too. It’s overdue… what Petraeus and his p.c. COIN rules of engagement would never, ever have agreed to. Should the Right Angle cover the Afghanistan changes, I’ll post that analysis, too.
Meanwhile, it’s good for Western military morale to watch the perfidious Iran kill off the top (and very skilled) Hezbollah leaders, i.e., their own allies. Teamwork has always been an alien idea in Islam.
Great analysis! Those who are paying close attention to world affairs should take note of this short video.
Why would Assad have done such a stupid thing? It just makes no sense.
Maybe he underestimated Trump. A lot of people mistake kindness for weakness. A very common and very human error.
Dropping in only for a few minutes this morning (Good Friday), I’d like to note that the Hezbollah leaders are *not* Iran’s “own allies.” Unless my sustained illness over the past few months has completely deranged me, Iran is and has been for a long time a Shi’a culture; Hezbollat and its ilk are Sunni, and, by now, perhaps even Wahhabyi or–a term we all know and don’t love–Salafist, each of this being a progressively more stringent move to a Puritanical and literal reading of the Q’uran textbook for terror.
Nope. Iran doesn’t want Hezbollah leaders around.
You’re mixed up. Hezbollah is a Shia organization.
