Dan Senor

Former Iraq war spokesman Dan Senor, an adviser to the Romney campaign who has been heavily covered in the news of late because of his high-profile efforts to shape the campaign’s Middle East message, has said that if the former governor is elected, he would support a decision by Israel to preemptively attack Iran.

Frederick Fleitz

A former CIA officer who now works as an editor for a right-wing news group, Fleitz argues that diplomacy on Iran is no longer an option, worries that Syria might transfer nuclear weapons-related material to terrorists, and appears none too happy about Right Web’s efforts to publicize his advocacy of militarist foreign policies or his alleged role in the “PlameGate” affair.

Nina Rosenwald

An heir to the Sears Roebuck fortune, Nina Rosenwald has been dubbed “the sugar mama of anti-Muslim hate” for her philanthropy supporting right-wing and anti-Islamic groups in the United States.

Richard Williamson

Romney surrogate Richard Williamson, a former UN ambassador, claims that a President Romney would put military force on “on the table” to prevent and Iranian “nuclear breakout.”

FreedomWorks

FreedomWorks, one of several establishment Republican Party groups that have endeavored to claim the mantle of the Tea Party, has warned GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney that he has to move further right.

Dan Quayle

Was Mitt Romney’s overseas misadventure his “potatoe” moment? Former VP Quayle’s most enduring legacy, besides having had William Kristol as his “brain,” is his record of verbal gaffes, against which numerous successive political figures have been compared.

Spurred by anti-internationalist sentiment among conservative Republicans in Congress and the Trump administration, the US is headed for a new confrontation with the UN over who decides how much the US should pay for peacekeeping.

Decent developments in the Trump administration indicate that the neoconservatives, at one point on the margins of Washington’s new power alignments, are now on the ascendent?

As the end of Donald Trump’s first 100 days as president approaches, it seems that his version of an “America-first” foreign policy is in effect a military-first policy aimed at achieving global hegemony, which means it’s a potential doomsday machine.

Hopeful that Donald Trump may actually be their kind of guy, neoconservatives are full of praise for the cruise-missile strike against Syria and are pressing for more.

Steve Bannon’s removal from the NSC’s Principals Committee doesn’t mean that he’s gone from the White House or no longer exerts a powerful influence on Trump. His office is still located very close to the Oval Office, and there’s nothing to indicate that his dark and messianic worldview has changed.

Promoting sanctions that could undermine the Iran nuclear deal, pushing security assistance for Israel, combatting BDS, and more.

Contrary to some wishful thinking following the Trump administration’s decision to “put Iran on notice” and seemingly restore U.S.-Saudi ties, there are little signs of apprehension in Tehran.
