The world is becoming increasingly dangerous, but the West seems reluctant to defend its values against barbarism and protect its interests against naked aggression. The borders of Europe were forcibly redrawn when Russia illegally annexed Crimea. Russia continues to bring instability to eastern Ukraine making a fragile ceasefire unlikely to hold much longer. The Islamic State is raining terror across the Middle East, beheading Western captives and establishing a caliphate that threatens to undermine the core values of the West. This is in addition to other challenges including the rise of China, a nuclear armed Iran and continued economic troubles. Even so, the West appears fractured, weak, and slow responding to these challenges. What can the West do to ensure that Russia’s aggression is checked and that the evil forces behind the Islamic State are destroyed? Why has the West been so weak in confronting these challenges?
