    WARSAW — NATO leaders on Saturday agreed to face Russia with a mix of deterrence and dialogue, achieving a difficult consensus under U.S. leadership after a two-day summit, characterized by backroom compromise rather than bold conviction. “NATO is sending a clear message that we will defend every ally,” President Barack Obama said at the...

    Central and Eastern Europeans feel less like 2nd class NATO allies

    WARSAW — NATO opened its doors to members from Central Europe in 1999, but the alliance’s military footprint made only the tiniest of toeholds in the region. The headquarters of a multinational Polish-Danish-German corps is located on the outskirts of the city of Szczecin, just 10 kilometers from Poland’s border with Germany. Since...

    How the world fell out of love with Obama

    The rest of the world fell as hard for Barack Obama as Americans did. Back in 2008, the same qualities in the 47-year-old senator from Illinois that excited U.S. voters enthralled people around the globe. He was a fresh face and a compelling orator. He had spent his childhood in the Asia-Pacific, and his skin color alone made billions of people...

    Russian state media: NATO like a ‘kindergarten teacher’

    As leaders from the 28-member NATO alliance gather in Poland, Russian state media has pounced on comments by German Chancellor Angela Merkel that security in Europe can only be ensured by keeping Moscow on-side.

    NATO’s Germany problem

    BERLIN — When NATO’s faithful gather to discuss the Alliance’s latest challenge, a flurry of adjectives fills the air — mercurial, unpredictable, self-righteous.

    Poland’s ‘powerholic’

    ARSAW — Jarosław Kaczyński’s office is located on the first floor of a ramshackle building in central Warsaw. There’s a pool hall in the basement and a Japanese restaurant around the corner. The simple sign on the glass door reads only, “The office of member of parliament Jarosław Kaczyński.” Everyone knows not to knock without prior...
