  • The limits of language

    Can there be a political writer who has not fallen in love with George Orwell's 1946 essay, "Politics and the English Language"? Part of its appeal is what's appealing about all of Orwell -- its directness and honesty, its plain-spokenness, its faith,...
  • War, fear and truth

    Perhaps it would have surprised George Orwell, poet laureate of the Cold War, to find himself so much in our thoughts in this second decade of the post-Cold War age. The Soviet Union is 15 years dead, its imperium in the East long since ended. China has...
  • How does President Bush lie?

    In the face of overwhelming evidence, it's astounding that people such as James Kirchick, in "Bush never lied to us about Iraq," continue to defend the president against accusations that he intentionally misled and outright lied to the American people...
  • Who are you not calling a petro bully?

    I cannot understand why Michael Ross ignored the very best evidence for his contention that the "link between oil riches and bad international behavior is even deeper than it appears." He never mentions President Bush or Vice President Dick Cheney, nor...
  • The right way to withdraw

    Iraq is like a variable-rate mortgage with balloon payments and a stiff withdrawal penalty -- much cheaper to get into than out of. Had we not invaded Iraq, there are any number of better things we could do to fight terror with the billions the...
  • Cheney's delusions

    Cheney's delusions
    We probably shouldn't have been surprised at Vice President Dick Cheney's blustering, obstinate insistence on ABC News on Monday that he's been right all along about virtually everything. But that doesn't mean we have to agree. In the interview,...
  • Smart sanctions vs. dumb bombs

    U.S. foreign policy has its own fads and fashions. They change more slowly than Oscar-night sensations, but get reputations that are harder to shake. At the moment, economic sanctions have a bad rap. And that's a shame, because financial sanctions are...
  • Flip-flop on Darfur

    When it comes to taking action on the atrocities in Darfur, American foreign policy appears to be in meltdown mode. In an Alice-in-Wonderland reversal, Democrats and Republicans have neatly switched sides. The Bush administration is firmly committed to...
  • Mass murderers on notice

    Can monsters be deterred? Or are the people who commit the most unthinkable crimes against humanity mass murder, torture, genocide so hell-bent on evil that the normal considerations of common criminals, such as fear of being caught, don't apply? If...
  • Dead reporters and the information gap

    -------------------- FOR THE RECORD: An earlier version of this article referred to "Western correspondents mainly trapped inside Baghdad's fortified Green Zone." In fact, the majority of U.S. correspondents are based outside the Green Zone. -------------...
  • Choosing wars

    Today, Continetti and Antle determine whether an activist foreign policy has any place in conservative ideology. Previously, they debated the president's fiscal policy. Later in the week, they'll discuss the religious right, social engineering through tax...
  • Iran to the U.S.: Where we go now

    Iran to the U.S.: Where we go now
    On March 20, at the start of the Persian New Year, President Obama delivered a speech offering "the promise of a new beginning" in relations between the U.S. and Iran. But Obama also told Iranian leaders that the right to be part of the world's "community...
