Brian Hook on a stable and prosperous Middle East

The Middle East has been the hottest spot for continual conflict since the dawn of man. Countless wars and constant tension have been part of life for those living in the region. Many have tried to bring peace, but rarely has it been sustainable.

The biggest challenge in the modern Middle East is Iran. Whether interfering in Iraq, threatening Israel, or stoking violence across the region, the Islamic regime has been a constant thorn in the side of peacemakers. The most recent attempt to bring stability to the region is being made by envoy Brian Hook. He wants an actual treaty with the nation that passes the United States Senate, not a fragile executive action by the United Nations Security Council as we got in 2015.

His hopes are slim, but he’s sticking to his guns by calling out the problem they pose in stark terms.

European and Asian countries have been trying to salvage the nuclear deal despite new U.S. sanctions against Tehran.

As Israel destroys Hezbollah's terror tunnels, Benjamin Netanyahu issues a warning

Hezbollah was caught red-handed building tunnels from Lebanon to Israel for the sole purpose of transporting soldiers, terrorists, and weapons across the border for future attacks on Israel. This isn’t disputed, but there still seems to be a false sense of outrage towards Israel for destroying them.

There’s no way to tell how Hezbollah expected Israel to react, but they have grown increasingly threatening as the fruits of their labors are being systematically demolished. Some fear retaliation for Israel’s efforts to protect itself. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it crystal clear any actions taken against the demolition process will be met by extreme force.

“If Hezbollah makes the mistake, and decides, in any way, to attack us or to oppose our operation, they will be hit with unimaginable blows.”

Thomas Sowell on #FakeNews

One of the great conservative thinkers of our time (or any time for that matter) is Thomas Sowell. He has been dishing out dimes of wisdom for decades, and though he is getting on in years he is still quite capable of breaking down the current status of geopolitics, economics, and cultural differences.

In other words, he’s the left’s greatest nightmare.

On the topic of fake news, which is near and dear to our hearts as a news outlet opposed to the machinations of mainstream media, Sowell breaks it down into a few simple choices. Either people in the media do their jobs or announce that they’ve stopped doing their jobs, in which case it’s up to the people to be discerning.

“If people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.”

This quote from Emmanuel Macron didn't age well

In light of all that’s happening in France right now, President Emmanuel Macron is under fire from all sides. Left, right, center – all are protesting the embattled leader and calling for him to step down.

It makes this quote from his election 18-months ago a bit more interesting.

“I will fight with all my power against the divisions that undermine us and which are tearing us apart.”

Since Macron currently represents the division that is undermining France and tearing the French apart, is he now against himself?
