  • 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...
  • The axe vs. the icon

    . . . "I care not who writes a nation's laws," a sage once remarked, "but who writes its songs." . . . On one of the last nights their country was still whole, well aware that it would soon be cleaved, and the conqueror would begin to pick up the...
  • The Cossacks are back

    My mother was puzzled. As she regularly was by this strange country and haven, where they did things differently from the old country, thank God. So she asked my older brother to explain something to her. "Irving," she was saying, "I know the Army...
  • Obama in denial on Russia

    Things are moving far too fast in Kiev, Moscow and Crimea to write about events there. But the past isn't going anywhere. Though you wouldn't know that from the way the Obama administration talks about it. Throughout this crisis -- indeed, throughout all...

  • To achieve peace, past must not be forgotten

    The Ukraine crisis has slowed to a temporary halt as none of the significant actors will speak directly to anyone else in a position to break the stalemate. John Kerry has cancelled his proposed visit to Moscow because he wanted Vladimir Putin to talk to...
  • 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...
  • Back by popular demand: Tyranny

    Ham and eggs, dictators and plebiscites, tyranny and sham elections, they all go together. So it was wholly to be expected, which means it was wholly a surprise to our ever-alert administration, when the latest tsar decided Crimea was ripe for the picking...
  • U.S., West have moral authority to criticize Putin over Crimea

    In one of those peculiar ironies of our self-involvement in the aftermath of the Russian invasion of Crimea, it is the moral authority of the United States that is evidently in play. "U.S. Lacks Moral Authority to Criticize Russia for Intervening in...
