Hillary Clinton's foreign policy: Doing stupid stuff

FILE - In this Sunday, Oct. 23, 2016 file photo, youths ride bicycles next to a burning oil well in Qayara, about 31 miles (50 km) south of Mosul, Iraq.

Last weeks assault on the northern city of Kirkuk offers a glimpse at the kind of asymmetrical response it might mount as Iraqi forces close in on Mosul, its last major urban bastion in the country.

Follow the Constitution to avoid scourge of war

War is the greatest scourge of mankind. Unsentimental Civil War Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman remarked: "I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine.

Although Congress has allowed Sept. 11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia over claims it had a role in the terror attacks, a federal judge has blasted the legal case at the heart of the debate as notoriously weak and full of "largely boilerplate" accusations. And the revised law that passed this week over President Barack Obama's veto gives the Justice Department sweeping authority to put the case on hold and fails to eliminate sovereign immunity from protecting Saudi Arabia assets.
