President Barack Obama eroded the U.S.'s superpower status and is leaving behind a far more dangerous world than the one he inherited. A Trump administration gives Israel reason to be optimistic, although we must remember he is a very shrewd businessman.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's speech last week against the settlement enterprise offered a very partial representation of reality. As we all know, half-truths are far worse than a whole lie.

Despite the recent US abstention from a vote on an anti-settlement UN Security Council resolution, and outgoing Secretary of State John Kerry’s subsequent speech in which he assailed settlement construction, there are many areas — particularly the defense field — in which US-Israel ties are “flourishing,” Maj. Gen. (ret.) Yaakov Amidror said in a Jewish Institute for National Security of America conference call.

The fight against the Islamic State terror group is heading underground. As Iraqi forces, with U.S. support, close in on Mosul, the toughest fighting likely will not be in the streets or door-to-door, but in sophisticated miles-long tunnel networks ISIL has constructed under the city. Fighting in this subterranean domain presents unique tactical, operational, technological and even legal challenges, for which the U.S. military must be better prepared. This is far from the first time tunnels have been used by asymmetric and conventional adversaries, and it is unlikely to be the last.

President-elect Donald Trump ran on the promise of ripping up the Iran deal - but then again, he also ran on repealing all of Obamacare. Neither seems possible, but the opportunity to correct course on Iran now exists, provided that Trump's infatuation with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the general lack of expertise among Trump's inner circle do not hinder the effort to put the mullahs back on their heels.

Just as the Barbary pirates of yore impeded safe passage, U.S. vessels today are challenged by new aggressors, Iran foremost. Iranian forces or their proxies have forcibly tried to prevent the U.S. Navy from sailing freely in international waters in the Persian Gulf and, more recently, in the Red Sea.

It is telling, if depressing, that in their just concluded second debate, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton referred to "leadership" just three times. After all, a majority of Americans will distrust the leadership abilities of whoever is elected. To find a paragon of modern leadership, one must look south of our border, to Colombia, at Alvaro Uribe, arguably the greatest leader of 21st century.
