The US Role In The Middle East In An Era Of Renewed Great Power Competition

by Eric Edelmanvia The Caravan
Tuesday, April 2, 2019

What role should the United States play in the Middle East as its attention shifts to the objectives outlined in the National Security Strategy and the National Defense Strategy of competing with near peers like Russia and China?  Today pundits and observers are posing this question against a backdrop of more than a decade and a half of costly, inconclusive and seemingly “endless” wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the more recent deployment of roughly two thousand Special Forces troops to Syria as part of the counter ISIS campaign.  To President Trump the answer seems clear.  He noted in April 2018 at an Ohio rally “we’ll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon.

Re-Weaving The Fabric Of Character

by Chester E. Finn Jr.via Thomas B. Fordham Institute
Tuesday, April 2, 2019

As I gird my loins for several upcoming events where we will wrangle over the “social and emotional learning” approach to educating-the-whole-child, I benefited—and perhaps you could, too—from a conceptual reset, courtesy of a fine new book by Anne Snyder, who leads the “character initiative” at the Philanthropy Roundtable, of which Fordham is a member and where I once had the honor of serving on the board.

The Greco-Persian Wars, Part Five: The Destruction Of Athens

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia The Daily Wire
Tuesday, April 2, 2019

As Xerxes' victorious legions triumphantly marched into Attica, panic swept the countryside. An estimated quarter million women, children, and elderly fled the region in one of the largest mass migrations of the ancient world. Themistocles decreed Athens must be abandoned. The entire population of the city and its immediate surroundings, some 100,000 souls, evacuated to the rugged island of Salamis where, as historian Victor Davis Hanson writes: “They were gambling that their own seaman, along with the still unconquered Greek allies from the Peloponnese, could wreck the Persian fleet before they all starved—and before the onset of autumn.”
