US Senate Wants Stricter Authorization for Use of Military Force in Syria | IJR

Members of the Senate Foreign Relations committee met Tuesday morning to discuss repealing the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Force (AUMF) and replacing it with one that covers U.S. military action against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

“This is one of the most important responsibilities we’ve had,” said the committee’s top Democrat, Ben Cardin (D-Md.), who argued that the 16-year-old authorization “is being used well beyond what Congress intended.”

Autumn of the Black Snake: The Creation of the U.S. Army and the Invasion That Opened the West

Some wars America remembers, some wars we work to forget. William Hogeland gives a dramatic telling of the war that we have never really talked about, despite being the war that made us the global military power we are today. The Shawnee, Miami, and Delaware communities were robbed and devastated by a conflict they in no way provoked―and defeated by an American general named Mad Anthony, conquering land that President George Washington had long coveted.

Just like that, the US Ministry of Truth is officially born.

The Russian Moment | Mark Citadel

The establishment of a natural geopolitical phenomena, a Moscow-Berlin-Paris axis based on sovereignty, identity, realist continentalism, and Traditional Christian values (I say ‘Traditional’ to distinguish these from bourgeois pseudo-Christianity) would provide Russia with its necessary security, but more importantly could be achieved without the evils of occupation and without the threat of nuclear war.
