  • There once was a land named Crimea

    Thanks to some strange alignment of the planets, there were two competing, yet remarkably similar, news stories this week. Both involved the disappearance of things that should never get lost: an entire passenger plane and an entire country. But, at...
  • Tougher Actions Needed To Stop Putin

    The president of the Los Angeles World Affairs Council challenges critics of President Barack Obama's Ukraine policy by saying "What are you going to do, send the 101st Airborne into Crimea?" Not exactly subtle. And rather silly, considering that no one...
  • A real risk of war

    Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea and threat to Ukraine are causing damage he perhaps did not anticipate: disorientation of the United States and profound division in Europe, especially in Germany, and in NATO. A real risk of war. American...
  • The war to end all wars

    "Peace, as we have seen, is not an order natural to mankind: it is artificial, intricate and highly volatile. All kinds of preconditions are necessary." -- Michael Howard, "The Invention of Peace" And here comes World War I, wrapped in World War II,...
  • What Ukraine really needs

    The United States has a recent history of going to war for dubious reasons promoted by interested groups, for which afterwards Americans are sorry. I have in mind the controversial Tonkin Gulf incident that was used to justify large-scale U.S....

  • The dawn of Cold War II

     The dawn of Cold War II
    Here's a chilly thought: We are seeing the dawn of a second Cold War between Russia and the West. But this one should be easier to manage than the first was. The headlines over the last week have echoed the bad old days of the 20th century: Russian...
  • Putin conducts 'Russia Marches On'

     Putin conducts 'Russia Marches On'
    Last week, before Vladimir Putin annexed the Ukrainian region of Crimea to Russia, I asked a leading Putinologist, Fiona Hill of the Brookings Institution, what the Russian president was likely to do. "He's on the offensive," she said. "In his view, he'...
  • What would a Republican president do about Ukraine?

    Here's what the United States has done so far in an attempt to deter further Russian incursions into Ukraine: applied two rounds of economic sanctions and asked Congress to approve $1 billion in loan guarantees for Kiev. Here's what President Obama says...
  • What Americans really want in a foreign policy

    To understand how President Obama feels about the frustrations of foreign policy in an uncooperative world, just look at his testy response to a question from a Fox News reporter last week. Are critics wrong, the reporter asked, to say that America's...
