John J. Metzler UNITED NATIONS — Despite the persistent economic headwinds which are expected to slow economic expansion this year, “growth in the Asia and the Pacific area remains better than in any other region; continuing as an anchor of stability and a new growth pole for the world economy.” That’s the guardedly optimistic prognosis […]

Lev Navrozov It seems that quite recently things looked so promising in Russia.

France’s pendulum swing to the left jolts a continent’s fault lines

John J. Metzler UNITED NATIONS — Tone, tenor, and style separate Nicolas Sarkozy from Francois Hollande as much as clear political ideology divided the two contenders for the French presidency.

Selling priceless freedom, for a modest profit, to the enemy

Twilight for two once-great civilizations

Twilight for two once-great civilizations

Jeffrey T. Kuhner France’s decay serves as a warning to America. For centuries, Paris was the cradle of Western civilization. The French, however, have hit hard times. Their country is dying, and most French citizens don’t seem to care. This threatens to be our fate as well. France’s first-round presidential elections were held on Sunday. […]

Sarko, the waffle and the future of France

Wesley Pruden Nothing focuses a politician’s mind like staring at oblivion, and reluctantly contemplating himself at the center of that dark and dreary place.
