About Our Goals

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

–Edmund Burke

“The Trenchant Observer” blog seeks to provide incisive analysis and commentary on developments related to U.S. foreign policy, international affairs, and other matters of interest to global citizens throughout the world.

The target audience consists of readers who are interested in U.S. foreign policy and foreign affairs, including those who already have a sense of recent developments. Our goal is not to read the headlines or repeat what has already widely been reported. Rather, we seek to interpret developments, to draw readers into a collective effort to “connect the dots”, and to provide insights and commentary that will stimulate interest, discussion, and motivation for individuals to act to help create a better world.
