Clinton Should Say More About Syria

by Michelle Dixon, Stephen Miles

U.S.NEWS, Oct-19-2016 |

One of the biggest foreign policy challenges the next president will face is what the United States should do about Syria. By now, we all know the carnage a devastating war has brought to all sides of the conflict and the civilian population there. In addition to the security threat from the so-called Islamic State group, more than 400,000 people have been killed, 9 million have been displaced because of the war, and nearly 5 million of those have fled Syria all together – going mostly to nearby Turkey, Jordan or Lebanon...

The Lies of John McCain

by Stephen Miles

Huffington Post, Jun-20-2016 |

In a disgusting moment of ‘straight talk’ from Senator John McCain (R-AZ) this week, the former Republican Presidential nominee claimed that President Obama was “directly responsible” for the violent and deadly carnage at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. The senior Senator from Arizona quickly backtracked, offering a Washington-style apology in which he clarified that he “misspoke” and didn’t mean to imply that President Obama was “personally” responsible, simply that it was his policies that led to the death of 49 people and the wounding of another 53...

Alternatives to Endless War: A Sustainable, Effective Response to ISIS

by Win Without War

Apr-05-2016 | Press Release

There is no military solution to the ISIS crisis. The U.S. has spent over $8.8 billion conducting 10,000 military strikes in Syria and Iraq over the past 20 months, but the threat from ISIS in the region remains formidable. Instead of pursuing the illusion of military solutions, the U.S. and its allies should prioritize political solutions. Below are examples of the many alternatives available... Read More »

We Can't Bomb Our Way to Peace

by Stephen Miles

USA Today, Jun-11-2015 | Article

It is painfully clear that there is no U.S. military solution to the deepening crisis in Iraq. Deploying 450 more American servicemembers — in addition to the 3,000 already there — will not bring peace to Iraq nor heal the bitter sectarian divide fueling the conflict... Read More »

Arms Industry Ramps Up Lobbying Efforts As Budget Battles Continue

by Stephen Miles, William D. Hartung

Huffington Post, Jun-01-2015 | Article

Nearly four years after budget caps imposed by Congress began to modestly rein in runaway spending at the Pentagon, the sky hasn't fallen. In fact, none of the dire predictions of Pentagon contractors - from mass layoffs to a collapse of the U.S. military - have come true. Instead, weapons makers' profits have soared, employment has increased nationwide, and Congress is busily cooking up budget gimmicks to violate its own spending caps and return to record spending levels...

Peter Kassig's Death: Revenge Is Not the Answer

by Angela Miller

Stars and Stripes, Nov-25-2014 | Article

It takes strength to listen to our better angels instead of giving in to revenge. As a nation, we will benefit from resisting our initial instincts and asking the hard questions about our latest war in Iraq and Syria: What do our desire for vengeance and our revulsion at the barbarism of the Islamic State mean in real policy terms? Will airstrikes and ground troops actually degrade the Islamic State, or will they be counterproductive... Read More »

President Obama and the Rohingya Genocide Threat in Burma

by Tom Andrews

Huffington Post, Nov-11-2014 | Article

The UN Special Adviser for the Prevention of Genocide has expressed deep concern for targeting of the Rohingya and warned of a "considerable risk of further violence." Hardly surprising given Burmese President Thein Sein's statement, two years ago, that the "only solution" for the Rohingya was deportation or camps. Quite surprising, however, was the U.S. announcement, hours later, lifting investment sanctions... Read More »
