  • The election of a new European parliament

    The coming weekend will see the election of a new European parliament. These elections traditionally are unsatisfactory because of the lack of a true and informed European electorate. This year they may provide an unprecedented shock. In France -- the...
  • 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...
  • Ownership of personal data still appears up for grabs

    Your personal information is yours. I'll repeat that: Your personal information is yours. Yet that simple idea, which should serve as the basis of all privacy-related laws and regulations in the United States, seems to have eluded those who profess to...
  • What do Washington and the West now want?

    Here again in the Ukrainian affair we see the Manichean habits of mind of the Cold War, still the most powerful precedent in the last 50 years of American and Western political history and policy studies. Among commentators and officials the tendency...

  • The tea party lives -- in Europe

    BELFAST, Northern Ireland -- While Tea Party candidates underperformed against establishment Republican incumbents in recent U.S. primary elections, in Europe their conservative cousins have just scored some spectacular victories. Commentators are...
  • Obama could spare Israel terrible outcome

    The merciful death that has, at last, been administered to Secretary of State John Kerry's foredoomed Israel-Palestinian settlement talks has been greeted by little beyond silence in the international community. Anyone possessing a modicum of reason knew...
  • Russian saber-rattling has Eastern Europe craving NATO protection

     Russian saber-rattling has Eastern Europe craving NATO protection
    Red lines haven't been kind to President Obama. When he warned Syria's Bashar Assad against using chemical weapons, Assad used them anyway. When he warned Russia against seizing Crimea, Vladimir Putin went ahead and annexed the place. But there was...

    The neo-conservative commentator, Robert Kagan, co-founder in 1997 of the Project for a New American Century, and after that institution crashed amidst the ruins of Iraq, founder of its 2009 successor, the Foreign Policy Initiative, is continuing his...
