    Poland’s problem with this Pope

    Pope Francis will be received by the usual ecstatic crowds when he touches down in Krakow, Poland, this week for a four-day Catholic youth celebration.

    Europeans should brace for a post-American world

    I remember spending a fair portion of the 2000s, during the presidency of George W. Bush, fighting the casual anti-Americanism that existed in Europe at the time. I used to explain to my friends on the old continent that Republicans were not the dumb party. Their commitment to a hawkish foreign policy, including two controversial wars in...
