The Good and Bad News About The FY2015 Defense Budget

This week, the DOD formally submitted to Congress its proposal of the FY2015 defense budget.

The “Reset” Has ALWAYS Been A Total Failure

As CDN reported earlier, the Democrats are already rushing to defend Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s utterly failed foreign policy record, including the shameful, disastrous “reset” (read: appeasement) policy towards Russia. Some former Clinton State Department officials, such as P. J. Crowley, defend it on the spurious grounds that “the reset worked when Dmitry Medvedev […]

Democrats Already Rush To Defend Hillary’s Disastrous Russia Record

Nobody except Barack Obama himself has been as responsible for the utterly failed “reset” (read: appeasement) policy towards Russia, the disastrous results of which are now available for the entire world to see.

What Western powers should do in response to Russia's aggression

What Western powers should do in response to Russia’s aggression

  The Russian aggression against Ukraine, initiated by President Vladimir Putin, has surprised many but not me, and should have surprised no one. It is simply an inevitable consequence of the West, and especially America’s, shameless appeasement policy towards Russia combined with a long-running policy of unilateral disarmament (while Russia, under Vladimir Putin, has been […]

Rebuttal of lies about US nuclear weapons and ICBMs

Rebuttal of lies about US nuclear weapons and ICBMs

For decades, leftist politicians, media outlets, and “arms control advocates” (read: advocates of America’s unilateral disarmament) have falsely claimed that the US nuclear deterrent is obsolete, unneeded, and unimportant. They have recently been joined by some pseudoconservative, pseudo-pro-military outlets such as the Air Force Magazine, the press organ of the Air Force Association. Concurrently, for […]

Rebuttal of British “analysts” global power delusions

A British blogger has recently published a post on the ConservativeHome website wherein he claims, based on rubbish produced by two British pseudo-analysts, that Britain is a global power and the second most important country in the world.

Rebuttal of leftist lies about US tactical nukes in Europe

This week, a leftist group called the “Peterson Defense Advisory Committee”, an organization that advocates deep unilateral cuts in America’s nuclear deterrent, will hold a meeting on Capitol Hill intended to propagandize members of Congress, their staffers, and the public into believing that US tactical nuclear weapons are no longer needed in Europe. By their […]

Rebuttal of Robert Gates and his BS book

Today,  a book by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates will hit the stores. Already some parts of it have been released to the media, which, depending on their political preferences, have focused on the parts favorable or unfavorable to Obama and the Democrats. But equally (if not more) important is Robert Gates’ disastrous tenure as […]

CNS and Cirincione are lying; America needs a LARGE nuclear deterrent

The leftist, California-based “Center for Nonproliferation Studies” and the also leftist, Democrat-run CBO have recently released rigged “studies” claiming that nuclear weapons modernization and maintenance will cost the US $355 bn over the next decade and$1 trillion over the next 30 years. These figures are wildly exaggerated and not based on any accurate statistics, and their […]

Rebuttal of Robert Burns' blatant lies about ICBMs

Rebuttal of Robert Burns’ blatant lies about ICBMs
