As long as Russian bombs fall on Chechnya, we should give no aid and no assistance to Russia - not one ruble.

UN is useful but cannot replace US world leadership

The UN can never be an adequate substitute for American leadership. It has its uses, but to confer on that diverse organization, the leading responsibility for international stability, freedom and justice, will quickly render it incapable of any task whatsoever.

China: Advocate for political reforms, and guard Taiwan

Political reforms are the best assurance that China will emerge as a non-threatening great power. We may argue over whether economic engagement and rising prosperity further or hinder those reforms, but they should be the objective of both camps. We need not shrink from a strong advocacy of religious and political freedom. Guarding against Chinese threats to our strategic interests in Asia is a sound rationale for helping reduce the growing threat to Taiwan from a mainland missile attack.
