Epic Epochs Of US Foreign Policy: Part Three

Fri, 30 May 2014 01:37:06 +00002014-05-30T01:37:06Z

Not Your Grandfather's Military Advisers

Wed, 14 May 2014 23:14:45 +00002014-05-14T23:14:45Z

Last week the US announced it was sending some military advisers into Nigeria to help look for the more than 200 girls that Boko Haram kidnapped in April.

Many Americans of a certain age -- 50 and up, I'd say -- cringe at the phrase "military advisers," though. Here's a look at how the phrase got so tarnished, and why it shouldn't hold such bad connotations any longer.

Sun, 27 Apr 2014 22:50:51 +00002014-04-27T22:50:51Z

You might recall last December when China declared the airspace over the Senkaku Islands as its own. Trouble is, Japan also claims it.

Sun, 27 Apr 2014 22:39:51 +00002014-04-27T22:39:51Z

US President Barack Obama's trip to the Asia-Pacific region this month was supposed to solidify his foreign policy "rebalance" to that region, which he began in 2011.
