  • The Syria dilemma: Can global atrocities be ranked?

  • Chuck Hagel's nuclear exemption

    Chuck Hagel's nuclear exemption
    The headlines on the Pentagon budget unveiled by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel this week were all about austerity: the smallest U.S. Army since 1940; fewer aircraft, ships and armored vehicles; even some modest belt-tightening on future military pay and...
  • Doyle McManus: The West is still waiting for its Libya gamble to pay off

    Hope isn't a strategy. But it was a major part of NATO's decision to launch an air war against Libya's Moammar Kadafi almost three months ago. Back in March, when the bombing began, the leaders of France, Britain and the United States hoped Kadafi's...

  • Vladimir Putin, master player

    Vladimir Putin, master player
    Let us now praise Vladimir Putin. Yes, Russia's president is a cold-hearted autocrat. And yes, he rules through a network of nasty oligarchs bent on squeezing profit from their country's oil riches. If he covets a piece of territory, he's liable to...
  • Obama's fading dream of a foreign policy legacy

    President Barack Obama envisioned building a foreign-policy legacy in his second term: a nuclear deal with sanction-strapped Iran, an end to U.S. involvement in conflicts overseas, and a successful pivot to Asia, including a trans-Pacific trade pact....
  • A third Obama disappointment seems imminent

    The first Obama administration was distinguished by eloquent promises and high expectations, especially in Norway where the jury of the Nobel Peace Prize awarded their annual distinction to Barack Obama even before he had settled down into the chair...
  • Rachel Marsden: Obama's Iran deal vaporizes an outdated red line

    PARIS -- Remember when you were a kid and you would open a full refrigerator right after mom's latest grocery-shopping trip, only to complain that there was nothing to eat and that she was starving you to death? Well, that's Iran right now. Iran has...
  • Obama's bailout for the despots

    It's President Obama's worst bailout so far. He's going to rescue the U.N. Human Rights Council. Now admittedly, the council wasn't on the verge of going out of business. Heck, if there were a nuclear war, the pinstriped thugs of the United Nations'...
