LT. GEN. JERRY BOYKIN, former US Deputy Undersecretary of  Defense for Intelligence, explains why he doesn't support Chuck Hagel and John Brennan's nominations. Hagel does not take a firm enough line on Iran, and Brennan fails to understand that fundamentalist ideology is what motivates terrorists. Boykin also forecasts the "hollowing out" of the military from sequestration, and talks about the death of the American ethos that no soldier, dead or alive, is left behind.

From the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, SEBASTIAN GORKA critiques the lack of understanding that we have about the ideology that drives our enemies in the war on terror, and references the Cold War ideological battle as a frame work for how to win a war of ideas.

ADAM KREDO, a senior writer for the Washington Free Beacon, explains how sequestration will "hollow out the military," and illuminates the reasons why the vote on Hagel's nomination was delayed.

From forbes.com, GORDON CHANG takes a tour through Asia explaining how the weakening Chinese economy and disarray in the political system is creating a formula for war, how many countries in Asia are devaluing their currencies, and how Chinese cyber-warfare is costing America millions every year.

Former Army officer LT. GEN. JERRY BOYKIN gives his take on the Benghazi attacks and how the Obama Administration is purposefully deceiving the nation.

AMBASSADOR YORAM ETTINGER analyzes the Israeli Prime Ministers’ speech in which he clearly defined a red line for Iran’s nuclear program. He explains how Israel and the US must be united against Iran otherwise they will achieve a nuclear weapon and it will be too late to respond.

DR. ROBERT ZUBRIN talks about Obama’s unwillingness to go after Iran’s nuclear facilities or the facilities that power the nuclear reactors. This hesitation could lead to Iran achieving a nuclear weapon and the Middle East thrown into chaos.

Asian analyst GORDON CHANG explains China’s cyber attacks on the US, and most recently their attack on the White House military office.

Victor David Hanson weighs in on the President’s State of the Union speech, specifically focusing on the question of whether or not the U.S.  is really on a decline, or as the President put it “anyone who thinks that the United States is on a decline knows nothing.” Hanson then evaluates the current defense budget cuts by the current administration. Is it really a wise way to reduce the deficit? Can the U.S. maintain its military superiority? Can our allies trust and depend on us? Do we owe them any responsibilities?

Walter Pincus sits with Frank to evaluate and analyze the reliability and dependability of the Predator,Reaper and other unmanned vehicles that the government is spending billions on. Are they really reliable and dependable? Who is responsible for the lack of quality control of such important vehicles used to fight one of the most important wars for America? How does China play a role in this issue?

Retired Lt. Genral Jerry Boykin talks about the recent raid in Somalia by the Navy Seals. Should the United States troops be involved in such missions; and how would the recent defense budget cuts affect such operations? Is lily pad strategy the right solution to these dilemmas?

According to President Obama’s State of the Union address, “our ties to the Americas are deeper… anyone who tells you that America is in decline or that our influence has waned, doesn’t know what they’re talking about. ” In 2011 Iran has enjoyed more influence in Latin America than ever. In recent years (since 2005) Iran has expanded and intensified the relations and mainly their cooperation among some Latin American countries, such as Venezuela, Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Bolivia and Brazil. Roger Noriega addresses these situations and provides a deeper analysis about the situation in Latin America, the influence of Iran with special concern in Venezuela and Brazil, and the United States role as in all of these.

Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin (USA Ret.) spends a full hour with Frank to give his analysis on a nuclear Iran and the future of America’s armed forces after staggering cuts to the defense budget. Lt. Gen. Boykin feels that a nuclear Iran would not only be detrimental to Middle Eastern security, but security in a global context. Can America meet this possible threat considering the cuts that the Obama Administration has inflicted on our military?
