  • Brave New World

    By Pat Buchanan | October 29, 2013
    At the Cold War's end, the late Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick talked hopefully of America becoming again "a normal country in a normal time." Seems as though the normal times are never coming back.

    By Pat Buchanan | October 16, 2013
    In July, Graham told a cheering conference of Christians United for Israel: "If nothing changes in Iran, come September, October, I will present a resolution that will authorize the use of military force to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb."
  • America Says 'No!' to a Beltway War

    By Pat Buchanan | September 10, 2013
    The American people do not want war on Syria, and such a war makes no sense. Who is trying to stampede Congress into war on Syria, and then on Iran—and why? Therein lies the real question.
  • Dead Souls of a Cultural Revolution

    By Pat Buchanan | August 24, 2013
    Teenagers who can shoot and kill a man out of summertime boredom are moral barbarians, dead souls. But who created these monsters? Where did they come from? Surely one explanation lies in the fact that the old conscience-forming and character-forming institutions—home, church, school, and a moral and healthy culture fortifying basic truths—have collapsed. And the community hardest hit is Black America.
  • Who Owns the Future?

    By Pat Buchanan | August 20, 2013
    In the near term, bet on the men with the guns.
  • Do We Really Want a Cold War II?

    By Pat Buchanan | August 12, 2013
    "There have been times when they slip back into Cold War thinking," said President Obama in his tutorial with Jay Leno. And to show the Russians that such Cold War thinking is antiquated, Obama canceled his September summit with Vladimir Putin. The reason: Putin's grant of asylum to Edward Snowden, who showed up at the Moscow airport, his computers full of secrets that our National Security Agency has been thieving from every country on earth, including Russia.
  • Al Qaida in Perspective

    By Pat Buchanan | August 07, 2013
    Apparently, the threat is both serious and specific. The United States ordered 22 diplomatic missions closed and issued a worldwide travel alert for U.S. citizens. The threat comes from Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, AQAP, the most lethal branch of the terrorist organization.
  • Obama's Moment - A Deal With Iran!

    By Pat Buchanan | July 30, 2013
    Obama's second-term scandals—IRS, Benghazi, wiretapping The Associated Press and Fox—are in the low-kiloton range compared to the resignation of Nixon or the impeachment of Clinton.
  • Leading From Behind Al Sharpton

    By Pat Buchanan | July 22, 2013
    "The First Black President . . . Spoke First as a Black American," ran the banner headline of Sunday's Washington Post. But why, when the fires of anger over the Zimmerman verdict were dying down, did he go into that pressroom and stir them up?
  • Equality: American Idol

    By Pat Buchanan | July 04, 2013
    "They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin is much quoted in today's debate on the trade-off between freedom and security, as we learn about the National Security Agency's easy access to our phone records and emails. Yet we Americans have often sacrificed liberty for safety.
  • The Palin Doctrine

    By Pat Buchanan | June 28, 2013
    On U.S. military intervention in Syria's civil war, where "both sides are slaughtering each other as they scream over an arbitrary red line 'Allahu akbar' ... I say let Allah sort it out." So said Sarah Palin to the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference.
  • A Reluctant Warrior Tiptoes to War

    By Pat Buchanan | June 18, 2013
    Barack Obama has just taken his first baby steps into a war in Syria that may define and destroy his presidency. Thursday, while he was ringing in Gay Pride Month with LGBT revelers, a staffer, Ben Rhodes, informed the White House press that U.S. weapons will be going to the Syrian rebels. For two years Obama has stayed out of this sectarian-civil war that has consumed 90,000 lives. Why is he going in now?
  • Outside Agitators

    By Pat Buchanan | June 07, 2013
    While U.S.-funded democracy promotion is portrayed as benign, the National Endowment for Democracy, the International Republican Institute, DNI and Freedom House have been linked to revolutions that brought down regimes in Serbia, Ukraine, Georgia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, and nearly succeeded in Belarus.
  • Was Iraq Worth It?

    By Pat Buchanan | March 19, 2013
    Never before has America been held in lower esteem by the Arab peoples or the Islamic world. As for the reputation of the U.S. military, how many years will it be before our armed forces are no longer automatically associated with such terms as Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, renditions and waterboarding?
  • Who Speaks Now for the GOP?

    By Pat Buchanan | March 13, 2013
    To see these new Republicans standing by Rand Paul presented the image of a band of brothers standing up for principle. Rarely has this Republican Party looked better than it did last Wednesday.
  • A Godly Man in an Ungodly Age

    By Pat Buchanan | February 12, 2013
    Pope Benedict XVI restored some of the ancient beauty and majesty to the liturgy. He brought back to the fold separated Anglican brethren. The Church is making converts in sub-Saharan Africa. And in America, new traditionalist colleges and seminaries have begun to flourish.
  • Mitt Wasn't All Wrong About "Gifts"

    By Pat Buchanan | November 19, 2012
    The Republican capacity for self-delusion is truly awesome.
  • Will Obama Paint Mitt as Warmonger?

    By Pat Buchanan | October 19, 2012
    President Obama and Vice President Biden seem intent on appearing before the nation on Election Day as the sole peace party. This fact leaps out of a close read of Biden's debate transcript.
  • Folks, We Have a Brand New Ballgame

    By Pat Buchanan | October 04, 2012
    Mitt was like a contender so keyed up by his title shot that, between rounds, he could not sit on his stool, but stood in his corner to rush out and re-engage the champ the instant the bell sounded for the next round.
  • America's Last Crusade

    By Pat Buchanan | September 24, 2012
    If the Islamic world is so suffused with rage and hatred of us—for our wars, occupations, drone attacks, support of Israel, decadent culture, and tolerance of insults to Islam and the Prophet—why should we call for free elections, when the people will use those elections to vote into power rulers hostile to the United States?
  • Last Recourse of Failed Presidents

    By Pat Buchanan | September 04, 2012
    The Democratic convention will witness one sustained slander of Romney and Ryan as Randian agents of a plutocracy hell-bent on seeing its taxes reduced and the tax cuts paid for by eviscerating programs on which America's poor and the working and middle class depend for survival.
  • The New World Disorder

    By Pat Buchanan | August 23, 2012

    By Pat Buchanan | August 06, 2012

  • Obama's America—and Ours

    By Pat Buchanan | July 25, 2012
    "If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." Mitt Romney fell on this Obama quote like an NFL lineman on an end zone fumble during the Super Bowl.

    By Pat Buchanan | July 17, 2012
    The first criterion in choosing a vice president, it is said, is that he or she must be qualified to be president.
  • John Roberts Makes His Career Move

    By Pat Buchanan | July 02, 2012
    Roberts desperately does not want to seen by history as merely a competent but colorless member of the conservative bloc on the Supreme Court, another reliable vote in the Scalia camp. He does not want Anthony Kennedy, the swing justice, to be making history, while he is seen as a predictable conservative vote.
  • Rating and Ranking Our Presidents

    By Pat Buchanan | June 29, 2012
    Wilson—not Harding, Coolidge or Hoover, all of whom tried to ease the vindictive terms imposed on a defeated but democratic Germany—set the table for Nazism. Adolf Hitler was born at Versailles.
  • Has the Day of the Islamist Arrived?

    By Pat Buchanan | June 26, 2012
    Sixteen months after the United States abandoned its loyal satrap of 30 years, President Hosni Mubarak, to champion democracy in Egypt, the returns are in.
  • Now Korea Is Cleaning Our Clock

    By Pat Buchanan | June 19, 2012
    What do these mammoth and mounting deficits mean? A deepening dependence on foreign nations for the necessities of our national life. A steady erosion of our manufacturing base. A continued stagnation in the real wages of the middle class. And an unending redistribution of America's wealth to foreign lands.
  • The Bell Tolls for the Government Unions

    By Pat Buchanan | June 07, 2012
    With their union dues no longer taken out of their paychecks, tens of thousands of Wisconsin public employees refused to pony up those dues and quit their union, instead. What does this tell us?
  • Ann Romney Asks the Right Question

    By Pat Buchanan | June 01, 2012
    Would a President Romney and Republican Congress roll back benefits for scores of millions of seniors, raise the retirement age for Social Security and Medicare, reduce funds for Medicaid, Head Start, Pell grants, student loans, primary and secondary education, and shed federal employees by the tens of thousands?
  • How Bill Kristol Purged the Arabists

    By Pat Buchanan | May 29, 2012
    Bill Kristol's point: Refuse to toe the neocon line on Israel, and you have no future in the Republican Party.
  • What If Zimmerman Walks Free?

    By Pat Buchanan | May 24, 2012
    The public mind has been so poisoned that an acquittal of George Zimmerman could ignite a reaction similar to that, 20 years ago, when the Simi Valley jury acquitted the LAPD cops in the Rodney King beating case.
  • Has the Bell Begun to Toll for the GOP?

    By Pat Buchanan | May 18, 2012
    White America is a dying tribe. What do these statistics mean politically? Almost surely the end of the Republican Party as a national governing institution.
  • As the Boomers Head for the Barn

    By Pat Buchanan | May 14, 2012
    Here is a major cause of the economic malaise of the 21st century, a condition over which a president has little control. A shrinking share of our population is carrying an ever-expanding army of dependents.
  • The Antietam of the Culture War

    By Pat Buchanan | May 11, 2012
    Obama needs one more justice. If elected, he will get it, and same-sex marriage will be forced on all of America.
  • Something Rotten in the State

    By Pat Buchanan | April 26, 2012
    As the Secret Service travel and work in close contact with the White House Advance Office and White House Communications Agency, was the Obama staff oblivious to this misconduct? If they were aware of it, did no one report it to the White House chief of staff?
  • Bibi's Dilemma—and Barack's

    By Pat Buchanan | April 19, 2012
    Netanyahu believes Israel's security and survival mandate the nuclear castration of Iran.
  • Douse the Flames, Mr. President!

    By Pat Buchanan | March 27, 2012

    By Pat Buchanan | March 13, 2012

    By Pat Buchanan | March 08, 2012

  • For What, All These Wars?

    By Pat Buchanan | February 27, 2012
    The savage sanctions we imposed on a defeated Iraq and the planting of U.S. bases on Saudi soil that is home to Mecca was a casus belli for Osama bin Laden. Ten years after the triumph of Bush I, he brought down the twin towers.
  • The New Blacklist

    By Pat Buchanan | February 16, 2012
    My days as a political analyst at MSNBC have come to an end. After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing, after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.
  • Obama's Trampling on God's Turf Now

    By Pat Buchanan | February 10, 2012
    Yes, Virginia, there is a religious war going on. It is for the soul of America. And traditional Christianity is besieged.
  • Who Commissioned Us to Remake the World?

    By Pat Buchanan | January 29, 2012
    In the United States, all religions—Santeria, Wicca, Islam, Christianity—are to be treated equally and all kept out of the public square and the pubic schools. In a Muslim world that contains a fifth of mankind, Islam is the one true faith. Rival faiths have few or no rights. Are we going to push the Islamic world to treat all religions equally?
  • Vulture Capitalism or Populist Demagoguery?

    By Pat Buchanan | January 17, 2012
    Should Mitt Romney be nominated, he will need to make a national address defending his career at Bain Capital with the same conviction and passion with which he defended his faith in the campaign of 2008.
  • Four More Years—of This?

    By Pat Buchanan | January 05, 2012
    Resolving our fiscal crisis seems today beyond the capacity of the U.S. government, as currently constituted. We appear to be in a crisis of the regime rooted in an irreconcilable ideological conflict between two parties of relatively equal strength.
  • Whose Country Is It, Anyway?

    By Pat Buchanan | December 27, 2011
    The question for Christians is a simple one: Do they have what it takes to take America back?

    By Pat Buchanan | December 16, 2011
    For the Army and Marines who lost 4,500 dead and more than 30,000 wounded, many of them amputees, the second-longest war in U.S. history is over. America is coming home from Iraq.
  • David Cameron's Finest Hour

    By Pat Buchanan | December 13, 2011
    Prime Minister David Cameron's decision to veto Germany's demand for a new European fiscal union will define his premiership. More than that, Cameron has raised a banner for patriots everywhere fighting to retain their national independence.
  • Did FDR Provoke Pearl Harbor?

    By Pat Buchanan | December 06, 2011
    On Dec. 8, 1941, Franklin Roosevelt took the rostrum before a joint session of Congress to ask for a declaration of war on Japan. A day earlier, at dawn, carrier-based Japanese aircraft had launched a sneak attack devastating the U.S. battle fleet at Pearl Harbor.
  • Return of the War Party?

    By Pat Buchanan | November 15, 2011
    Is a vote for the Republican Party in 2012 a vote for war?
  • It Can't Happen Here!

    By Pat Buchanan | November 07, 2011
    Ethnic nationalism, what Albert Einstein dismissed as "the measles of mankind," and religious fanaticism are making headlines and history. Welcome to the new world disorder.

    By Pat Buchanan | October 21, 2011

  • What 9/11 Wrought: The Bush Legacy

    By Pat Buchanan | September 09, 2011
    Of George W. Bush, it will be said that, after 9/11, he led his country on a utopian crusade for democracy in the Muslim world—and all but ignored the rise of a rival with a potential that Stalin never had to surpass and eclipse the United States as first power on earth.
  • The Fire This Time

    By Pat Buchanan | August 12, 2011
    "You've damaged your own race," said Mayor Michael Nutter to the black youths of Philadelphia whose flash mobs have been beating and robbing shoppers in the fashionable district of downtown.
  • Who's Really Downgrading America?

    By Pat Buchanan | August 09, 2011
    This downgrade is deeply deserved. For no one really believes the United States is going to pay its creditors back the $14 trillion it owes them, or the $21 trillion it will owe them at decade's end, with dollars of the same value as those that the United States is borrowing today.
  • Fiscal Hawks vs. Security Hawks

    By Pat Buchanan | August 08, 2011
    The Republican Party is a stool that stands on three legs: social conservatives, economic conservatives and foreign policy conservatives. Yet since Ronald Reagan departed and George W. Bush arrived, that coalition has been under a growing strain that may yet pull it apart and redefine what conservatism means in 21st century America.
  • A Fire Bell in the Night for Norway

    By Pat Buchanan | July 28, 2011
    That massacre in Oslo, where a terrorist detonated a fertilizer bomb to decapitate the government and proceeded to a youth camp to kill 68 children of Norway's ruling elite, is a fire bell in the night for Europe. For Anders Behring Breivik is no Islamic terrorist.
  • What "Big Deals" Did to America

    By Pat Buchanan | July 28, 2011
    Because of Tea Party intransigence and threats against their own leader John Boehner, the speaker had to reject Obama's "grand bargain," the "big deal" of $3 trillion in budget cuts for $1 trillion in "revenue enhancement."
  • An Establishment in Panic

    By Pat Buchanan | July 08, 2011
    By refusing to accept tax increases in a deal to raise the debt ceiling, Republicans are behaving like "fanatics," writes David Brooks of The New York Times. Anti-tax Republicans "have no sense of moral decency," he adds.
  • The Death of Moral Community

    By Pat Buchanan | June 30, 2011
    "The opponents (of same-sex marriage) have no case other than ignorance and misconception and prejudice." So writes Richard Cohen in his celebratory column about Gov. Andrew Cuomo's role in legalizing gay marriage in New York state.
  • Say Goodbye to Los Angeles

    By Pat Buchanan | June 28, 2011
    Centuries before William James coined the phrase, men have sought a "moral equivalent of war," some human endeavor to satisfy the jingoistic lust of man, without the carnage of war.
  • Is Obama Only Postponing the Inevitable?

    By Pat Buchanan | June 24, 2011
    In deciding to pull all of the 30,000 troops from the surge out of Afghanistan, six weeks before Election Day 2012, but only 10,000 by year's end, President Obama has satisfied neither the generals nor the doves.
  • Fed Up With Freeloaders

    By Pat Buchanan | June 17, 2011
    Michele Bachmann, who emerged as the star of the debate and favorite for the backing of the social conservative and Tea Party right, called Libya a strategic mistake. No vital U.S. interests were imperiled. That debate was a fire bell in the night for the neoconservatives. The days when Republicans stood up and saluted a commander in chief as soon as he starting bombing a country appear to be over.
  • Return of the Anti-Interventionist Right

    By Pat Buchanan | June 07, 2011
    Late last month, when U.S. air strikes caused civilian casualties in Afghanistan, an angry Hamid Karzai issued an ultimatum. If future U.S. strikes are not restricted, we will take "unilateral action" and America may be treated like an "occupying power."
  • "Bibi" Votes Republican

    By Pat Buchanan | May 23, 2011
    Not since Nikita Khrushchev berated Dwight Eisenhower over Gary Powers' U-2 spy flight over Russia only weeks earlier has an American president been subjected to a dressing down like the one Barack Obama received from Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday.
  • Israel in a Post-American Era

    By Pat Buchanan | May 19, 2011
    Given the coordination of the Palestinian actions, we may be on the verge either of a Facebook revolution or a "third intifada," an uprising by Palestinians in Israel, the occupied territories, and Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt, where hundreds of thousands of descendants of the original exiles still live.
  • The Persecution of John Demjanjuk

    By Pat Buchanan | May 13, 2011
    The critical evidence that put John Demjanjuk at Sobibor came—from the KGB.
  • Vanishing American Footprint

    By Pat Buchanan | May 09, 2011
    With his order to effect the execution of Osama bin Laden by Navy SEALs, 40 miles from Islamabad, without asking permission of the government, Barack Obama made a bold and courageous decision. Its success, and the accolades he has received, have given him a credibility as commander in chief that he never had before.
  • Hate Speech Makes a Comeback

    By Pat Buchanan | April 28, 2011
    After Donald Trump called on Obama to release his original birth certificate and produce the academic records and test scores that put him on a bullet train from being a "terrible student" at Occidental College to Columbia, Harvard Law and Harvard Law Review editor, charges of "racism" have saturated the airwaves.
  • When Dictators Fall, Who Rises?

    By Pat Buchanan | April 26, 2011
    One month before the invasion of Iraq, Riah Abu el-Assal, a Palestinian and the Anglican bishop of Jerusalem at the time, warned Tony Blair, "You will be responsible for emptying Iraq, the homeland of Abraham, of Christians." The bishop proved a prophet.
  • Are We Allied to a Corpse?

    By Pat Buchanan | April 19, 2011
    Of our Libyan intervention, one thing may be safely said, and another safely predicted. When he launched his strikes on the Libyan army and regime, Barack Obama did not think it through. And this nation is now likely to be drawn even deeper into that war.
  • Who Are We Fighting For?

    By Pat Buchanan | April 06, 2011
    On March 20, Pastor Terry Jones, who heads a congregation of 30 at his Dove World Outreach Center church in Gainesville, Fla., conducted a mock trial of the Quran "for crimes against humanity." Pronouncing Islam's sacred book guilty, Jones soaked a Quran in kerosene and set it ablaze in a portable fire pit. Few noticed. But Hamid Karzai did.
  • How Killing Libyans Became a Moral Imperative

    By Pat Buchanan | March 24, 2011
    When Greek patriots sought America's assistance, Daniel Webster took up their cause but was admonished by John Randolph. Intervention would breach every "bulwark and barrier of the Constitution."
  • The Rising Irrelevance of Obama

    By Pat Buchanan | March 18, 2011
    "This will not stand!" declared George H.W. Bush. He was speaking of Saddam Hussein's invasion, occupation and annexation of the emirate of Kuwait as his "19th province." Seven months later, the Iraqi army was fleeing up the "Highway of Death" back into a country devastated by five weeks of U.S. bombing. When Bush spoke, the world sat up and listened.
  • Can Japan Rise Again?

    By Pat Buchanan | March 15, 2011
    We can thank Providence that the earthquake was not 150 miles closer to Tokyo, else Japan's dead might number in the millions.
  • Robert Gates, Neo-Isolationist?

    By Pat Buchanan | March 03, 2011
    the "neo-isolationists" who opposed invading Iraq and a "long war" in Afghanistan were right, in Gates' eyes. Quite an admission from a defense secretary who presided over the surge in Iraq and the surge in Afghanistan.
  • Bush's New "Axis of Evil"

    By Pat Buchanan | February 11, 2011
    George W. Bush must have been the despair of the history department of every school his daddy managed to get him into. Consider his latest excursion into the history of the republic, at Southern Methodist, where the Great Man's papers are to be housed.
  • Who Lost the Middle East?

    By Pat Buchanan | January 18, 2011
    Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown, especially today in the Maghreb and Middle East. For the ouster of Tunisia's Zine El Abidine Ben Ali has sent shock waves from Rabat to Riyadh. Autocrats, emirs and kings have to be asking themselves: If rioters can bring down Ben Ali with his ruthless security forces, what prevents this from happening here?
  • Requiem for a Patriot

    By Pat Buchanan | January 04, 2011
    "Conservative Tycoon ... Dies at 95," said the New York Times headline on New Year's Eve about the death of Roger Milliken. Clearly, the headline writer did not know the man.
  • Is a Bond Crisis Inevitable?

    By Pat Buchanan | December 31, 2010
    With Christmas shoppers out in force and the stock market surging to a two-year high, talk is spreading that the long-awaited recovery is at hand. Perhaps. But gleaning the news from Europe and Asia as U.S. cities, states and the federal government sink into debt, it is difficult to believe a worldwide financial crisis that hammers governments, banks and bondholders alike can be long averted.
  • Christian Rout in the Culture War

    By Pat Buchanan | December 20, 2010
    A Democratic Congress, discharged by the voters on Nov. 2, has as one of its last official acts, imposed its San Francisco values on the armed forces of the United States. "Don't ask, don't tell" is to be repealed. Open homosexuals are to be welcomed with open arms in all branches of the armed services. Let us hope this works out better for the Marine Corps than it did for the Catholic Church.
  • Naked Men in National Museums

    By Pat Buchanan | December 09, 2010
    What in the name of Gilbert Stuart is going on at the National Portrait Gallery?
  • European Union: R.I.P.?

    By Pat Buchanan | December 01, 2010
    Economic nationalism is now resurgent across Europe. And it is hard to see how a transnational institution like the European Union, run by faceless bureaucrats, and the 16-nation eurozone it created long survive.
  • Is the GOP Risking a New Cold War?

    By Pat Buchanan | November 23, 2010
    Before Republican senators vote down the strategic arms reduction treaty negotiated by the Obama administration, they should think long and hard about the consequences.
  • Who Fed the Tiger?

    By Pat Buchanan | November 18, 2010
    Missiles fired from the Chinese mainland could destroy five of the six major U.S. air bases in the Far East.
  • The Murderers of Christianity

    By Pat Buchanan | November 10, 2010
    Sunday, on the eve of All Saints' Day, Nov. 1, 2010, the faithful gathered at the Assyrian Catholic Church of Our Lady of Salvation in Baghdad. As Father Wassim Sabih finished the mass, eight al-Qaida stormed in, began shooting and forced him to the floor. As the priest pleaded that his parishioners be spared, they executed him and began their mission of mass murder.
  • Has History Passed Obama By?

    By Pat Buchanan | November 05, 2010
    Barack Obama's dream of being a transformational president who alters the course of his country died 48 hours ago. The message America sent Obama and the men and women America sent to Congress to replace his allies impel one to ask: Why would he want a second term?
  • Tea Party Tory

    By Pat Buchanan | October 22, 2010
    Before the Tea Party philosophy is ever even tested in America, it will have succeeded, or it will have failed, in Great Britain. For in David Cameron the Brits have a prime minister who can fairly be described as a Tea Party Tory.
  • Tribalism Returns to Europe

    By Pat Buchanan | October 18, 2010
    Is Europe's adventure in international living about to end? At Potsdam, Germany, this weekend, Chancellor Angela Merkel told the young conservatives of her Christian Democratic Union that Germany's attempt to create a multicultural society where people "live side by side and enjoy each other" has "failed, utterly failed."
  • Food Stamp Nation

    By Pat Buchanan | October 08, 2010
    What we have accepted today is a vast permanent underclass of scores of millions who cannot cope and must be carried by the rest of society—fed, clothed, housed, tutored, medicated at taxpayer's expense for their entire lives. We have a new division in America: those who pay a double fare, and those who forever ride free.
  • The Message of Tokyo's Kowtow

    By Pat Buchanan | September 28, 2010
    The Chinese have just made a serious strategic blunder. They dropped the mask and showed their scowling face to Asia, exposing how the Middle Kingdom intends to deal with smaller powers, now that she is the largest military and economic force in Asia and second largest on earth.
  • Guess Who's Not Coming to Dinner
