What Happened to the War on Terror?

What Happened to the War on Terror?

From the invasion of Iraq in 2003 until the economy took a turn for the worse during the election, the “War on Terror” was the defining issue of the Republican Party. Standard conservative priorities like smaller government and fiscal responsibility and even social issues like abortion, gay marriage and gun rights, all took a backseat to support for the war in Iraq. So what happened? Listen to virtually any Republican politician or conservative talk show today and you won’t hear much about Al-Quada, terrorism or 9/11. You will hear one thing and thing only – how Obama’s massive spending must be stopped. It’s as if the War on Terror never even existed.

Blacklisted By NR

Nothing I have read in National Review during my over 30 years as a subscriber shocked and angered me more than Ron Radosh’s nasty review of M. Stanton Evans’s Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies. Why did the NR editors publish such a vicious and spiteful piece that irresponsibly slanders a respected former contributor? Were the editors ignorant of the magazine’s history and who Evans was? Or, were they trying to disassociate themselves from their pro-McCarthy past?

Chained to a Corpse: John Howard and George Bush

Chained to a Corpse: John Howard and George Bush

Thanks to his tin ear on Iraq, Mr. Howard—a thoroughly competent and genuinely conservative public servant—has been forced into early retirement, and he’s not alone. Howard now joins league with other conservative foreign leaders given the boot because they chose to play along with America’s war games. To greet him on the lucrative lecture circuit for yesterday’s man will be his fellow COWs , Jose Maria Aznar Lopez (Spain’s former President, whose centre-right People’s Party was voted out in 2004) and Silvio Berlusconi (Italy’s past Prime Minister, whose centre-right Forza Italia party was voted out in 2006). The results for social conservatives in each country (for instance, opponents of gay “marriage” in Spain) have been catastrophic.
