I understand that it is difficult for the United States to continue to […]

20/20 Hindsight in the Middle East

By COLTON CALANDRELLA “By idly standing by as the chaos in Syria worsens, the United States is allowing the proliferation of dangerous extremist groups.” Two years ago, I argued these words in a Public Forum debate, positing that the United States’ lack of involvement in the Syrian civil war undermined our national security by allowing the development and expansion of […]

The United Nations Stagnation Council

The United Nations Stagnation Council

America the Avenger

America the Avenger

BY MARGAUX BAVILSIK Who’s your favorite superhero? The childishly egotistical, but somehow endearing Iron Man/Tony Stark? The misunderstood billionaire troglodyte, Batman-Bruce Wayne? Pubescent Peter Parker-Spiderman? Or maybe you’re more of an X-Men person—pick a power, any power. Or you could be traditional, partial to Superman–the man with every power except that of being interesting. Regarding foreign policy, it is not […]

Rivals Wanted, Apply Within: Is NATO Still Relevant?

BY CONOR HAMMOND On April 4th, 1949, twelve nations—including France, Great Britain, Italy, and the United States—bound themselves together that they might “safeguard the freedom, common heritage and civilization of their peoples” and, of course, counter the growing threat of Soviet aggression. 65 years later and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s bold rival is gone; leaving the world’s most influential […]
