Northern Syria: A Small Withdrawal’s ‘Massive’ Effects (Audio)

America’s withdrawal of approximately 1,000 troops from northeast Syria is one of those quantitatively small events that will have a “massive” long-term effect on the Middle East and beyond. So, said Aykan Erdemir, a former member of the Turkish parliament and a senior fellow at the Washington, D.C.-based Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. On an October 24 conference call hosted by the Jewish Policy Center, Dr. Erdemir highlighted four negative consequences of the U.S. pull-out from areas held by Syrian Kurdish allies in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS): From now on, allies and potential partners will be hedging, turning to Russia and beyond. “The United States just lost major credibility and trust”; The Trump administration undercut its one successful, efficient model of a low-cost, small force commitment combined with using local partners—in this case Syrian Kurdish allies—in defeating an enemy. Erdemir said “this model posed the greates...

Is Demography Destiny for Republicans and Democrats? (Audio)

Do the United States’ “enormous demographic shifts” predetermine election results in coming decades? They definitely appear to be changing the playing field to the advantage of Democrats over Republicans, Richard Baehr, co-founder of the American Thinker and the website’s chief political correspondent told a Jewish Policy Center conference call on September 24. But there is “not any straight line” from election to election, Baehr said. So “candidates and messages matter,” meaning savvy Republican candidates still can win. “In 1988, 85 percent of all voters were whites,” Baehr noted. The Republican presidential candidate, Vice President George H. W. Bush, won the white vote by a 20 percent margin. The Democratic presidential hopeful, Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, took 80 percent of ballots cast by minority voters. The result? Bush won the presidency by eight percent of the popular vote over Dukakis. In the 2004 presidential election, Republican President George W. Bus...

A Mysterious Explosion in Russia (Audio)

On August 8 two explosions rocked a Russian weapons testing site on the White Sea near the Arctic Circle and authorities quickly pulled offline four nuclear fallout monitoring stations connected to the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. News sources, however, reported radiation leakage and seven dead. These included five from Rosatom, Russia’s nuclear agency, a senior official among them. Why the mystery? “Most experts think it was a test of a nuclear-propelled hypersonic vehicle,” said Dr. Stephen Bryen, a former deputy undersecretary of defense and an authority on nuclear arms, missile defense and cyberwarfare. Hypersonic weapons, if developed successfully could overcome all existing anti-missile defenses, Bryen told participants in an August 28 Jewish Policy Center conference call. “That’s why it’s a game changer.” The Russians are not alone. China apparently is also working on hypersonic weapons development, and Bryen said that just last week the United States cancell...
