  • China, Russia and the new world disorder

    The seven years since 9/11 reveal an old truth: Problems are usually not solved, they are just overtaken by other problems. Those of 8/8, for example. On Aug. 8, 2008, two mighty nations announced their return. Russia, invading Georgia, did it with tanks....

  • Russian evolution

    Russia has lost an empire and not yet found a role. As we approach the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, we should pay tribute again to the fact that a nuclear-armed superpower surrendered its vast continental empire with scarcely a shot...
  • Sir Salman's plight

    SALMAN RUSHDIE, with a little help from her majesty, has again clarified the battle lines on which we stand. Britain is honoring him for what he has written, and as a result, he is again being threatened with death. An Iranian organization has...

  • Iraq looms large in Tony Blair's legacy

    ALL POLITICAL careers end in failure, but it is not always the same failure. As British Prime Minister Tony Blair departs, he is deeply unpopular at home but rather respected abroad. Only 22% of British respondents in a recent poll think he can be...

    What to do with Gitmo's detainees?
    Today's question: What to do with enemy combatants? Is there no one who should be held indefinitely? Shouldn't there be a difference between prosecuting a war and prosecuting a crime? Previously, Sulmasy and Kaye discussed what President Bush could do...
