It was Sunday — a day of rest for the American troops at the Marine compound in Beirut. Sgt. Steve Russell stood guard duty early that morning when he heard a yellow flatbed truck rev its engine and head for the entrance. The truck, carrying the equivalent of 21,000 pounds of TNT, exploded. Sgt. Russell survived, but the attack killed 241 America troops, mainly Marines, who had come to Lebanon on a peacekeeping mission. Fifty-eight French soldiers died in another attack across town.
President Felipe Calderon said Monday that he has improved the rule of the law and armored the economy in his six years in office.
By any measure, the 2012 London Games will be considered a booming success for the United States.
When he's eligible — and healthy enough — to run, it's very hard to catch LaShawn Merritt.
Currently enjoying its bicentennial, the War of 1812 occupies a musty, forgotten junk drawer in America's collective cultural consciousness, stuffed somewhere between the liberation of Grenada and the time Will Smith punched that extraterrestrial fighter pilot in the face.
From sun-kissed Caribbean beaches to icy north Atlantic tundra, Queen Elizabeth II's family has begun a celebratory tour to mark her 60th year on the throne - just as questions are raised about dumping the monarchy in the far-flung outposts of Britain's faded empire.
After World War II, the United States veered from one strategic military policy to another. The "mutual assured de- struction" of President Eisenhower and the Dulles brothers gave way to the "graduated escalation" of Robert McNamara during the Vietnam era.
The dramatic rescue of an American aid worker and her Danish colleague in Somalia by Navy commandos was a terrific encore to the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan nine months ago. However, all the White House-driven publicity for both events has helped turn the once-secret SEAL Team 6 into a household term, with likely negative consequences.
Iceland is a small European country famous for its barren Arctic and volcanic terrain. The island nation is also a strategic spot in the North Atlantic that is crucial for European security.
Last week, a statue of Ronald Reagan was erected in London to commemorate the centen- nial of the American president's birth. It would not be overstating the case to say that Reagan and Baroness Margaret Thatcher's relationship defined a remarkable period in history. Neither before nor since has a partnership between two great nations and great leaders carried such ideological cohesion and improved the lot of so many citizens of the world.
Outgoing Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said something that is true for almost every American reading these words: "I spent my entire adult life with the United States as a superpower, and one that had no compunction about spending what it took to sustain that position."
Sen. John McCain, whose life is a continuing exemplar of the American heroic ideal, regretfully has got it quite wrong when he says that growing GOP opposition to the Libyan and Afghan wars is evidence of isolationism.
Guatemala played with nine men in the final 11 minutes, but managed to tie Honduras 0-0 on Monday night in the second game of a Group B doubleheader at the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
In the aftermath of the president's National Defense University speech on Libya, U.S. objectives in Libya are still confusing and confounding to many. Our military, whether under U.S. command or NATO command, is participating in no-fly and humanitarian protection missions, while the administration, the United Nations Security Council and our foreign allies declare that these missions are unrelated to the U.S. policy to see Col. Moammar Gadhafi gone. Regardless, no-fly and humanitarian protection missions are insufficient to topple an entrenched dictator, and even the military leaders acknowledge they could see a post-intervention scenario that leaves Col. Gadhafi in power.
Robert M. Gates is on his farewell lap as secre -tary of defense and is making his final speeches to the service academies. He also seems to be debating himself in the process. He made the following remarks to Army cadets at West Point:
