Williams: Will the West defend itself?

By Walter E. Williams The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), sometimes called ISIS or IS, is a Sunni extremist group that follows al-Qaida’s anti-West ideology and sees a holy war against the West as a religious duty.

Pruden: A promise to defend America on the cheap

By Wesley Pruden Maybe President Obama is beginning to understand the Islamist threat against America. Maybe. If he does, we’ll owe a debt to the Americans who lost their heads to the barbarians.
