  • McManus: A ticking clock on Syria

    McManus: A ticking clock on Syria
    The interventionist liberals of the Obama administration were a doleful bunch last week. It was the 20th anniversary of the siege of Sarajevo, when a Bosnian Serb army battered a city full of civilians with artillery while the United States issued...
  • USOC lifted the bar for Muslim woman

    USOC lifted the bar for Muslim woman
    Next week at the Asian Weightlifting Championships in South Korea, a computer engineer from Atlanta will take another step she hopes could lead to the 2012 London Olympics. That Kulsoom Abdullah has gotten this far is nothing short of a miracle, given...
  • Libya's only a part of Mideast equation

    The eyes of the world are on the battle for Libya. It's undeniably a compelling drama: Spirited but untrained rebels, plus NATO airstrikes, pitted against an eccentric dictator with a cinematic wardrobe. But it's the wrong drama to worry about. The...
  • McManus: Change in Saudi Arabia

    Women in Saudi Arabia won a small but promising victory this year. No, they aren't being allowed to drive; that's still forbidden. Most of the time, they still can't work, travel or even open bank accounts without the approval of a male guardian. But they...

    Jonah Goldberg: Taken in by 'Gay Girl'
    I'd barely followed "A Gay Girl In Damascus" until last week, when Daily Beast columnist Peter Beinart posted something to Twitter: "This is really important — this woman is a hero," with a link to a story about Amina Abdallah Arraf, a Syrian...

    "What the heck went wrong?" That, apparently, is the question roiling the environmental community as it realizes that the fight against climate change has fizzled. As Brad Plumer writes in the New Republic, everything was looking great in 2008 for a...
  • McManus: A Gingrich presidency?

    A couple of weeks ago, I wrote that if Mitt Romney won the South Carolina primary, the Republican presidential race would be over and he would be the nominee. But Romney didn't win, and that means it's time to consider the unthinkable: What would life...
  • McManus: Inching toward Syria

    Military intervention in the Muslim world seems to bring the United States nothing but grief. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya: None looks much like a success story now. Yet the Obama administration is edging reluctantly into a civil war in Syria, aiding rebels...
  • Iran and nuclear proliferation, cont.

    In my Sunday column, I explained why we shouldn't expect a nuclear arms race in the Middle East if Iran manages to acquire the bomb. History indicates proliferation is rare, because most states facing nuclear enemies see no need to match their arsenals....
  • Unifying Syrian Opposition Key

    The Syrian opposition took a big step forward this month by forming a broad political coalition that includes local activists who started the revolution. But the opposition's military command is still a mess, and until it's fixed, jihadist extremists will...
  • Stop Kicking Canada Around On Keystone Pipeline

    Fixated as we Americans are on Canada's three most attention-getting exports — polar vortexes, Alberta clippers and the antics of Toronto's addled mayor — we've somewhat overlooked a major feature of Canada's current relations with the...
