As the Obama administration issues predictable declarations of support for Egyptian democracy, it is quietly longing for a return to the Mubarak era of an obedient military dictatorship that submissively conforms to U.S. demands.

Nonintervention must be part of a ‘libertarian populist’ agenda

There are fissures simmering in the conservative movement that reveal hints of a future war for the Republican Party.
