Morality and foreign policy: Once again, the U.S. is asked, ‘for God’s sake, do something!’

Morality and foreign policy: Once again, the U.S. is asked, ‘for God’s sake, do something!’

Sol W. Sanders [See Archive A perennial American foreign policy debate sets “realism” against “idealism”, national interest versus morality. The dichotomy is often overstated. The two currents divide and merge incessantly in the flow of implementation of any concrete overseas policy and tactics. American statesmen have argued — contemporary politicians still do as did The […]

Revisiting the ‘Revolution’ of 1917 to put the Putin of today in context

Lev Navrozov What’s this? Don’t I know what is going on in Russia? The entire world is watching! And here I am recalling oh, God, those horrible events of 1917! The trouble is that as a result of chasing after what is happening this month, this day, this hour, this minute in a certain country […]

Obama’s October surprise

Obama’s October surprise

Jeffrey T. Kuhner Is President Obama planning to launch military strikes against Iran in order to ensure re-election? Is there an October surprise being hatched by the White House? All the signals are: yes. Recently, Mr. Obama told an audience at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) annual policy conference in Washington, D.C. that […]

Liquidate the World Bank!

Liquidate the World Bank!

Sol W. Sanders [See Archive] An old adage holds bureaucracies may successfully pursue their original goals for only a generation. After that their efforts go to feathering their bureaucratic nest. Freddy Mac and Fannie Mae are examples: outrageous executive compensation and payoffs to Congressional friends, all contributing to a housing bust, now requiring more billions […]

Next president can cope with Putin redux and China’s sinister rise … if his name is not Obama

Lev Navrozov “China Builds the Bomb” is the title of a 327-page book written by two American nuclear scientists and published in 1988. I bought this book as soon as it hit the bookstores. Indeed, the book invited the readers to pay special attention to Chapter “China’s Nuclear Weapons Tests, 1964-1978” (pp. 244-245). Quite a […]

Obama’s overspending ensures Euro-debt will devastate U.S.

Obama’s overspending ensures Euro-debt will devastate U.S.

Jeffrey T. Kuhner President Obama’s budget puts America on the path toward Greece. It is a reckless document, a stunning betrayal of U.S. economic interests. By its own numbers, Obamanomics leads to national bankruptcy. Unless there is a dramatic course correction, we will share the bleak fate of the Greeks: riots, chaos and internationally imposed […]

The choice for Russian voters: Who will uphold freedom?

The choice for Russian voters: Who will uphold freedom?

Lev Navrozov These days we are living in the world in which the future political development of Russia is of great importance to the entire world. Why? Before the “revolution of October 1917,” Russia had been viewed by those most enlightened in the world as a country of great hope. It is beyond an argument […]

Classic showdown for Western civilization: Not in Brussels, but in Greece

Classic showdown for Western civilization: Not in Brussels, but in Greece

Sol W. Sanders There is a terrible poignancy to the current Greek crisis. Its essence does not revolve around Greece’s role in the European Union or the Eurozone, per se. After all, before the fall, Greece contributed only 1.8 percent of the gross national product of the world’s largest trading bloc. Nor, indeed, as time […]
