In an era that has embraced unseriousness as a virtue, America needs the leadership of serious people all the more.
In a world largely inhabited by foreign policy ideologues with no sense of history, one can only hope George H.W. Bush’s prudence, restraint, and realist statecraft makes a comeback.
Yesterday, President Trump resisted public pressure and declined to significantly reorient American foreign policy in light of Saudi Arabia’s brutal killing of its political opponent Jamal Khashoggi.
Sen. Rand Paul has the right idea about entertaining diplomatic talks with Russian officials. His colleagues should take note.
In a situation with no good answers, let’s attempt to work toward freeing the other political prisoners held captive by Saudi Arabia.
It is not too strong to say Saudi Arabia is our most important strategic partner in mitigating and rolling back Iran’s power and malign activities.
Looking away from Saudi perfidy is an embarrassment to the thesis of a rule-based order, but be careful about ditching Riyadh for the sake of idealism.
President Trump is facing an international crisis with no obvious good fix. So his slow, measured approach is the right one.
It is better to be a conservative realist and nationalist than to be a utopian internationalist and be slapped in the face by reality.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s patient approach may be politically risky, but it is strategically safe. An unprovoked attack from the Kim regime is deeply implausible.
The newly visible balancing China approach could be the Trump administration’s legacy foreign policy move, if the president can stay away from needless interventionism in the next two years.
Former president of Russian target Georgia: After a lifetime of firsthand experience with Russian aggression, I must evaluate Trump’s actions against the historical context. In doing so, I find Trump’s actions speak for themselves.
Trump’s supporters will forgive the president’s blunders if his actions bear the results he’s promising. In the meantime, Trump’s critics don’t need to make up or exaggerate the mistakes he’s made.
Today the president let Vladimir Putin save too much face, which could delay improvement in U.S.-Russia relations.
The old willingness to ‘pay any price, bear any burden’ is waning. There is no reason we should subsidize others’ luxuries, let alone when we have so many problems at home.
If you don’t like the messenger or how he messages, fine, but don’t miss the real issue: Does NATO as it is functioning require a bit of scrutiny and reform? Obviously so.
We’ve seen the cycle happen too many times. Every administration thinks they know how to deal with North Korea — yet they too end up fooled.
President Trump’s grievances about the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are not his, not new, and definitely not influenced by the 2016 election or Russia.
This habit of seeing Islam through a narrow lens reinforces the likelihood that the Washington memo pushing for Islamic reformation is a significant strategy. It won’t work as planned.
