Goodbye, Robert E. Lee

On Monday, I visited an impressive statue in a Dallas, Texas city park. The statue depicts Robert E. Lee and a fellow soldier riding their horses next to each other.

Wednesday of last week, the Dallas city council voted to remove the statue from the park, which is named after Lee and also contains a building modeled after Lee’s Virginia home. The removal process began within an hour after the vote. But, after delays due to a temporary restraining order and a vehicular crash involving the crane intended to aid in removing the statue, the statue was still present in the park on Monday.

Lawrence Wilkerson: Expect New Afghanistan War Policy to ‘Deepen the Failure’

Trump and the War Party: RPI's Daniel McAdams on Mises Weekends

The costs of our wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria—human and economic—keep piling up. How do such deeply unpopular wars go on so long? Why do sensible notions of peace and non-intervention fail to gain a foothold in Congress or the White House? How does the War Party in DC plays both sides? And, how do they silence anti-war voices like Tulsi Gabbard? This is a no-holds-barred discussion of the grim realities behind US foreign policy...

Blowback: Israel Threatens Syria Over Iran

US and allied interventionism in Iraq and Syria has not produced the promised results. An Iraq government close to Iran, a Syria saved from a jihadist takeover by Russia and Iran, and so on. Israel was firmly aboard the "regime change" train but suddenly sees the shake-out not looking in its favor. That is the problem with regime-change and interventionism: it does not work as promised. Now Israel feels threatened by the result. What's next? Threats are flying from Netanyahu over Iranians in Syria. We discuss blowback in today's Liberty Report...
