To change a military: U.S. approaching a crossroads of failure or great accomplishment

The history of the U.S. military does not follow a straight line of organizational well-being or even success. Our military has been forged in battles that resulted in both successes and failures. Its most cherished victory came in our Revolutionary War, when George Washington’s bedraggled, undernourished and battered army crossed the Delaware River on a cold December night and routed the Hessian forces encamped at Trenton. That battle changed the trajectory of our Revolutionary War, which ended at Yorktown with the defeat of the mighty British Empire. It changed the course of history. We should use it as a marker for the future. We are approaching a crossroads of failure or great accomplishment.

Zelenskyy and the U.S. military-industrial complex

Ukrainian President Zelenskyy’s recent visit to Washington to secure further financial aid from Congress garnered notable criticism from the American public. The justifiable criticism was twofold. First, the plea for more taxpayer dollars magnified the growing unease among many Americans over how much the U.S. has spent on this war without a clear plan for ending it.

What Donald Trump’s Ukraine Strategy Could Look Like

Donald Trump has vowed that in a second presidential term, he would end the war in Ukraine “in twenty-four hours.” Mainstream analysts have dismissed the president’s statements as hyperbole, but there is a strong possibility that Trump will be back in the Oval Office in just over a year’s time. Foreign policy experts, therefore, should take the former President’s statements seriously and assess how a Trump administration might deal with the largest conflict in Europe since World War II.
