For his initiative and leadership McMaster was later awarded a Silver Star for valor. “I first heard about McMaster from a friend of mine in his unit, who told me about this badass commander who took out an entire Iraqi tank battalion in a matter of minutes,” said Nagl, who also fought in Desert Storm as an armor officer. The historian in McMaster was already evident. On his return from covering the Persian Gulf War, for instance, UPI war correspondent and author Joseph Galloway found a large envelope in his pile of mail. In it was a hand-written description of the Battle of 73 Easting that ran more than 30 pages long. “I could just picture H.R. sitting on the tailgate of his command vehicle in the rain while scribbling this detailed description, which he then sent to his mother, who forwarded it to me,” said Galloway. Years later Galloway heard again from McMaster, who wanted advice on possibly turning into a book his doctoral dissertation on the decision-making that led to defeat in Vietnam.

The beginning of Trump’s presidency has included numerous drastic policy initiatives, most in the form of executive orders. The orders come with little warning and with each comes an indication of another. The suspense has put the community of interest groups, who fight for progressive causes, on high alert. And the seemingly constant barrage of orders enacted rapidly with expansive implications has created yet another obstacle for activistsexhaustion. VICE News Correspondent Evan McMorris-Santoro checked in with some of the sleep deprived advocates prepared to mobilize at a moment’s notice to challenge what they consider unjust orders.

The war on drugs waged by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has taken more than 7,000 lives since its inception. It took the killing of a South Korean businessman by police to prompt President Duterte to formally apologize. And while he suspended the offensive, the killings have continued. Now, the Catholic church and other faith groups have recently begun to fight back. The initiative, collectively referred to as Rise Up, intends to stand up for human rights, give financial aid to victims, and document the killings. “What we need is a cure and love. Not condemnation. Not execution,” Carmelite Father Gilbert Billena, a spokesman for the Rise Up group, told VICE News Correspondent Seb Walker. The church has a great deal of influence in the Philippines and it has been questioned why it took so long to mount its official opposition. Some clergy members, such as Reverend Jerry Bongcawii, do not object to President Duterte’s initiative.

The average person has little exposure to the criminalization of everyday enterprise in America via over-regulation and outsized penalties for even accidental violations of rules and regulations. One field that continues to be burdened with excessive/counter-productive regulations and outsized penalties is the practice of medicine. I received the following email from a physician correspondent: As you will see, physicians have to deal with the federal government's increasingly crazy and copious rules (like which patients they can screen for disease and how often). The following is an email ad I received for an expensive service that provides no benefit to the ill and injured of America. It's bureaucratic nonsense. Here is the email ad: Can you afford a $1.1 million penalty and a 50-year exclusion from Medicare? That's what one New Jersey provider is facing.
