    Trump’s New and Misguided Respect for NATO

    President Donald Trump is continuing his foreign odyssey with a stop in Brussels to meet leaders of other NATO members. The visit is primarily a meet-and-greet highlighted by dinner, but it illustrates the president’s apparent capture by Washington’s conventional wisdom. No international institution may better illustrate Public Choice...

    Realism Doesn’t Need to Be ‘Reclaimed’

    Ted Bromund, Michael Auslin, and Colin Dueck want to “reclaim American realism,” and spell out what they mean by that in a new article for American Affairs. The idea that realism needs to be “reclaimed” is the first sign that the foreign policy they have in mind has little in common with the one most realists want: A new foreign policy can be...

    Removing Trump Won’t Solve America’s Crisis

    America is in crisis. It is a crisis of greater magnitude than any the country has faced in its history, with the exception of the Civil War. It is a crisis long in the making—and likely to be with us long into the future. It is a crisis so thoroughly rooted in the American polity that it’s difficult to see how it can be resolved in any...

    Interventionism and Ignorance Revisited

    Kevin Quealy reports on the results of an experiment that tested geographical knowledge and related it to foreign policy preferences: An experiment led by Kyle Dropp of Morning Consult from April 27-29, conducted at the request of The New York Times, shows that respondents who could correctly identify North Korea tended to view diplomatic and...

    What Is America’s Goal in the World?

    For the World War II generation there was clarity. The attack on Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941, united the nation as it had never been before—in the conviction that Japan must be smashed, no matter how long it took or how many lives it cost. After the defeat of the Axis powers in 1945, however, Americans divided. Only with the Berlin Blockade of...

    In Russia, It’s the Realists vs. the Ethno-Nationalists

    Editor’s note: This piece was originally published in Russia in Vzglyad on January 13. It was translated by Paul Grenier under the aegis of the Simone Weil Center for Political Philosophy dialogue project. Dmitry Drobnitsky, in his article “The foreign policy objectives of the party of internal development,” raises a question about the sort...

    Going Off the Rails?

    Four issues got Donald Trump elected president: immigration, free trade, political correctness, and the quest for American world hegemony along with the wars that it spawned. If he is to be reelected, he must deliver on all four. Unfortunately, on the fourth issue, wars of hegemony, it appears his young administration is already going off the...

    Samuel Huntington Was Not Like Steve Bannon

    The late Samuel Huntington’s “clash of civilizations” paradigm has been taking a beating lately. His critics have warned that such a worldview portends a millenarian war between the West and Islam. One reason for the pile-on is that Huntington’s theory has become associated with the views of Steve Bannon, who, as a call-in participant...

    The Rise of the Generals

    Has President Donald Trump outsourced foreign policy to the generals? So it would seem. Candidate Trump held out his hand to Vladimir Putin. He rejected further U.S. intervention in Syria other than to smash ISIS. He spoke of getting out and staying out of the misbegotten Middle East wars into which Presidents Bush II and Obama had plunged the...

    Why Do We Want a Cooperative Relationship With Russia?

    Some months back I organized a dinner on Capitol Hill that brought together some former and current Russian officials with a number of prominent U.S. Republicans and conservatives, including two congressmen, a conservative magazine publisher, some journalists, and others. It didn’t seem like a particularly newsworthy event—just a routine...
