    Ukraine in NATO? America Should Reject a Bad Idea That Only Grows Worse with Age

    Doug Bandow The government of Ukraine reaffirmed its desire to join NATO. The alliance said the door is open for Kiev. It’s an idea that only grows worse with age.

    When Trump Met Putin: Is Reconciliation in the Air?

    Doug Bandow The long awaited meeting between America’s and Russia’s presidents finally occurred at the G-20 summit.

    Donald Trump Meets Vladimir Putin: Time for U.S. To Normalize Relations with Russia

    Doug Bandow Perhaps the most important policy initiative suggested by candidate Donald Trump was improving relations with the Russian Federation.

    If Russia Wants the Syria Mess, Let Them Have It

    President Donald Trump Spoiled NATO Party in Brussels and Americans Should Thank Him

    Doug Bandow NATO leaders gathered yesterday. The meeting didn’t go as planned. To his credit, President Donald Trump put America first when he addressed them. That’s certainly not what they expected. There was much scuttlebutt about how the Europeans planned to play President Trump. Push simple ideas, make him think he won something....

    How Kosovo Poisoned America’s Relationship with Russia

    Ted Galen Carpenter For a brief period in April, it appeared that the campaign that Democrats and neo-conservative Republicans were waging for a comprehensive investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russian government to influence the 2016 presidential election had peaked and was beginning to ebb.

    Donald Trump: The ‘Manchurian (Neoconservative) Candidate’?

    Doug Bandow He took barely three months to reveal the truth. Donald Trump is the true Manchurian Candidate, only a tool of Neoconservatives rather than Communists. A new movie is sure to come and undoubtedly will be a smash, the biggest ever with the most Academy Awards ever, at least if President Trump has his way. Donald Trump ran as a...

    Turkey’s Erdogan Plays Dictator in Constitutional Fight: Divides Nation as Popularity

    Doug Bandow Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan secured near dictatorial powers in the recent constitutional referendum. Yet all is not well for the would-be sultan. He predicted that he’d win 60 percent or more of the vote, but barely broke 51 percent after rigging the ballot, destroying a free press, and criminalizing criticism....
