    Are the BRICS Trying to Form a One World Currency?

    May 30, 2023 | By Will Hurd

    The United States of America has built a global order following World War II that has benefitted America because every other country on Earth wanted to participate in it. This international order has led to America becoming the sole global superpower. It has enabled the economic success we call the American Dream to be the envy of the world. Unfortunately, this world order that has been beneficial to every American is now unraveling. If we don’t stop this unraveling, it will significantly erode our quality of life.

    Would China & Russia Attack Hawaii?

    Feb 7, 2023 | By Will Hurd

    The short answer is: Not in the near future. The long answer is: It’s something we should be actively gameplanning for. Both China and Russia have been expanding their military capabilities in the broader Indo-Pacific region. U.S. military leaders have repeatedly warned about the potential for Chinese Communist Party (CCP)-directed aggression in the Indo-Pacific and our Japanese allies have warned of an attack on Hawaii.

    Preventing Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine from Becoming a Long, Protracted War

    Apr 11, 2022 | By Will Hurd

    A long, protracted invasion of Ukraine is a win for Russian President Vladimir Putin. The longer Putin continues his invasion the more innocent people will be massacred, and the more likely it will be that Eastern European Countries that border Ukraine will become less supportive of the broader objectives of the European-American coalition in support of Ukraine.

    Why Does Russia Want Ukraine, and What Does It Mean for the Future?

    Mar 1, 2022 | By Will Hurd

    With Russian troops conducting a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, citizens of the United States and European Union concerned about the possibility of a world war have been asking why does Russia want Ukraine? The current crisis has roots going back to 2014 when Russian President Vladimir Putin first violated the Ukrainian border by invading two parts of the country – Crimea in the south and the Donbas region in Eastern Ukraine. Early Thursday morning on February 24, 2022, Russian forces began a military action to assault the Ukrainian capital Kyiv and remove Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy from power in an effort to topple the Ukrainian government.

    What USA Foreign Policy Should Be

    Feb 1, 2022 | By Will Hurd

    Most people would be shocked to learn that Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Donald Trump and Joe Biden have something in common. The thing they have in common is that when the National Security Council of each of these presidents were required to submit to Congress a National Security Strategy for the United States — a document which defined USA foreign policy – they were all based on the same national interests.

    What If The Cuban Missile Crisis Went Hot?

    Oct 25, 2021 | By Will Hurd

    In 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis the world came the closest in human history to a nuclear war. There are useful lessons from this Cold War period, when nuclear missiles were being transported on Soviet ships to support Fidel Castro’s Cuban revolution, that aren’t being applied to relevant situations in the world right now. During those 13+ days beginning on 27 October 1962 when the U.S. became aware of the presence in Cuba of Soviet missiles that could strike any city in America:

    Foreign Policy is Not Foreign

    Sep 27, 2021 | By Will Hurd

    The Haitian Immigrant Crisis on our Southern border is a reminder that foreign policy is not foreign. This current crisis is a bit different from previous ones originating from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, because in this case you have nationals from one country (the Haitians) attempting to come to the United States from another country (Chile, Columbia, Panama), where they have been living for many years.
