Bill Roggio, Editor for the Long War Journal, joins the show to discuss ISIS and the Middle East
If you fell asleep on Memorial Day and woke up on Labor Day, your head is probably swimming. The situation in the Muslim world from Libya to the Iranian border has turned in to some strange chaos if you have not been paying attention - but when you look at the details and trendlines, the logic is a lot clearer.
The long war has not gone anywhere, like a field untended, the weeds have returned and are prospering.
To help us understand developments over the summer, coming back to Midrats for the full hour to discuss this and more will be Bill Roggio, senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Bill is also the President of Public Multimedia Inc, a non-profit news organization; and the founder and Editor of The Long War Journal, a news site devoted to covering the war on terror. He has embedded with the US and the Iraqi military six times from 2005-08, and with the Canadian Army in Afghanistan in 2006. Bill served in the US Army and New Jersey National Guard from 1991-97.

Bill Roggio, the Managing Editor of The Long War Journal, joins the show to discuss the many conflicts & terror groups out there.
It hasn't gone anywhere, the Long War, that is.
People may be suffering whiplash having to look back to Europe in the middle of a Pacific pivot, and the Arab spring wilted in to extremism and bloodshed - but the war against the West still goes on from lone wolf attacks at home, to drone strikes across the swath of southwest, south, and central Asia.

With the coming of the new year, some things have not changes and the old challenges are still with us; most waxing - only a few waning.
This Sunday we have returning guest Charles J. Dunlap, Jr., Major General, USAF (Ret.), Professor of the Practice of
Law, and Executive Director, Center on Law, Ethics and National Security at Duke University.
We will cover the board spectrum of the evolution of Counter Insurgency, warfare in the cyber domain, and the ever-present impact of law on the conduct of war.
The Islamic State, ISIL/ISIS/Daesh - whatever people may call them - are not a flash in the pan. Not quite insurgency, not quiet terrorist organization, not quite nation state - what they are is a presence that has resilience, trans-national support, and has a long range plan.
What is their background, how have they evolved, and how do they view the world?
Our guest for the full hour to discuss this and more will be Craig Whiteside, LTC USA (Ret.), Associate Professor of Theater Security Decision Making for the Naval War College Monterey at the Naval Postgraduate School. Craig came to the War College from Washington State University, where he was a PhD student in Political Science and taught American Government and National Security Affairs. Prior to returning to school, Professor Whiteside was a career infantry officer in the U.S. Army with service in the airborne infantry. He is an Iraq war veteran and served with the Geronimos of the 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry in Iskandariyah as the battalion executive officer during 2006-7. He finished his military service as the Professor of Military Science at Washington State. Professor Whiteside is currently working on his dissertation investigating the political worldview of the Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham (ISIS). He is a graduate of the United States Military Academy and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.

O Holy Night? Well, it should be . . . except Jim Williams and “Frat House Mike” McShane are breaking down, analyzing, crying, whining, and screaming about this past week’s developments with the Philadelphia Eagles on the latest edition of Inside the WarNest.
Three weeks ago, the Eagles had a 90+% chance of making the playoffs. Today? They’re making vacation plans! How in the world did this happen . . . and HOW did they possibly lose to the Washington Redskins? It really didn’t appear to be a bad game plan; so did penalties and two missed field goals seal their fate?
Chip Kelly says the Birds have to go win a tenth game against the New York Giants this week, but does it really matter? Who cares?

Faith Focused Fridays is just a 15 minute pause at the beginning of your Friday, or at the end of your Friday. It is designed to just to remind you about the power of staying faith focused throughout the day, and week. It is hopeful that it will encourage you and empower you through the simple biblical truths, and connect it to real life moments.
Your Faith Is The Answer will touch on the fact that because we are called to live by faith, operate in it, and to respond to it that we shall have our answer. We can no longer operate as if we don't know what to do, but we must without paralyzing fear let faith be our answer, and the resolve of how we move from one thing to another.
