    History as a Weapon of Mass Deception

    Leading up to the seventieth anniversary of Russia’s victory over Nazi Germany on May 9, seemingly every Russian media outlet buzzed about the unveiling of the country’s new premier tank, the Armata T-14. Outfitted with an advanced remote-controlled armed turret, a new 125-mm 2A82-1M smoothbore cannon, the new tank was rumored to come...

    ISIS Makes the British Lion a De-Clawed and Shabby Cat

    The recent and rapid successes of the Islamic State (IS) in seizing Palmyra in Syria and Ramadi in Iraq, together with its three successful same-day strikes on 26 June 2015 in Kuwait, France, and Tunisia seem to have left British Prime Minister David Cameron rather panicky — like a twitchy kitten experiencing its first thunder-and lightning...

    The bear and the beaver: Russia and European energy security

    Winter is long over, and with it the worry, for a few months at least, that a Russian gas cut-off could leave Europe in the cold. This year, however, the fading threat has the appearance of being more than merely an annual phenomenon. While Europe’s energy security will be a challenge for decades to come, three recent developments provide...

    Defence: solidarity, trust and threat perception

    A common defence policy requires mutual solidarity and trust, as well as a shared threat perception. Over the past year, the armed conflict in Ukraine has heavily tested all three in Europe and the US. So far, transatlantic solidarity, trust and shared threat perception seem to be holding. Reacting to Russian aggression in Ukraine and its...

    Remarks by Thomas Donnelly: Sustaining American security, freedom, and prosperity will require a greater assertion of geopolitical leadership and military power

    Read the PDF. “Governments are instituted among men,” our Founders declared two and a half centuries ago, to secure the rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”—that is, to ensure public safety and security, defend political freedom, and foster economic prosperity.

    Europe’s populists: A present and rising danger

    Although there is a strong element of grievance in the politics of populism, one factor which is common to almost all of the continent’s populist parties is an anti-EU sentiment. It is the degree of this – and fundamentally its effect on governments – which is causing most concern among mainstream parties. A fanciful book, Apocalypse 2000,...

    The tough lessons of the EU-Russia crisis

    Relations between Russia and the European Union are in deep crisis – perhaps the most serious crisis since the end of the Cold War. As the Russian Federation’s former foreign minister, I particularly regret this bleak state of affairs as along with my European counterparts I myself invested much time and effort in building a stronger...

    Still no good news for the “make-or-break” EU Juncker promised

    From the challenge of Russia to the on-going tragedy unfolding in the Mediterranean to the persistent sense of economic drift, Europe finds itself at an inflection point. The disaffection of European citizens looms large, and institutions in Brussels are perceived as uninspiring and directionless. This leads to an uncomfortable but urgently...
