The Strategic Coalition of Jerusalem and Riyadh Against Iran

The Strategic Coalition of Jerusalem and Riyadh Against Iran

From now on the Iranian regime will have to face hard facts as they continue to threaten the region. U.S. sanctions and worldwide pressures on the regime have been made possible because of calm, resolute diplomatic and political action coming from a strategic alliance between Israel and Saudi Arabia. This alliance can put an end […]

Will the 2020s be the Decade of Regions?

Will the 2020s be the Decade of Regions?

There is little doubt that the protesters in Hong Kong have changed the world. With such a small population pushing for their freedoms against a large and wealthy Beijing government, our democratic cousins in Hong Kong have shown the world that democracy should not just be cherished, but needs to be fought for in the […]

The Myth of Beijing’s “Ecological Civilization”

Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a massive transcontinental infrastructural investment project focused across Eurasia, stretching from Asia to Europe to Africa. According to a 2019 World Bank report on the BRI, the project has created economic opportunities for 71 “corridor economies” that account for 35% of global foreign direct investments and 40% of […]

Op-Ed: US media ignores ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Bangladesh

In recent days, Trump’s impeachment hearings and the US president reversing US policy on the Israeli settlements have dominated headlines in the American media.  It does not matter whether you are reading the Washington Post or watching CNN.   For the American media, it does not matter what happens in the rest of the world.  Anything […]

Macron, Europe, NATO, and Maybe Us?

Macron, Europe, NATO, and Maybe Us?

  Brain Dead or Not, What’s its value to America? Emmanuel Macron’s views, as voiced in an interview with the Economist,  suggest that America needs to clarify what America is.  Americans will note Macron’s reference to the “brain death of NATO,” but the issue runs deeper than that one alliance.  Unaddressed, the sentiment Macron voices could […]

Trump, Iran, and the Foreign Policy of Bluster

Trump, Iran, and the Foreign Policy of Bluster

Referring to the latest crisis between Iran and Saudi Arabia, President Trump said that he is not interested in going to war with Iran. I believe him. He has not shown an interest in starting new wars (although he has been quite willing to escalate ongoing ones on occasion). The real problem here, I believe, […]

In that defining period, Egyptians have deposed a corrupt despot- Hosni Mubarak. They elected their first president—Mohamed Morsi—in a fair and internationally monitored election. And within 365 days, they […]

Op-ed: Turn Putin Inward

Op-ed: Turn Putin Inward

Seeking to merely “contain” Putin is not enough.  We have been outplayed, outsmarted and outmaneuvered in Europe, the Middle East, Venezuela, Africa and the Arctic. And at home. Point by point “cost imposing” measures against Russia have not worked. And simply repeating the pattern of reacting, deterring, responding, defending will not work.  Moscow–minimally as a […]
