    For Donald Trump to Succeed With North Korea, He’ll Need a Pragmatic Definition of “Denuclearization”

    The summit on Friday between South Korean president Moon Jae-in and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-Un was about far, far more than North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

    With Latest Syria Threats, Trump Continues to Be More Confrontational Toward Russia Than Obama Was

    The civil war in Syria began in 2011 and escalated for five years during the Obama presidency, yet President Obama – despite demands from leaders of both parties and think tanks across the spectrum – never once bombed Syrian government targets.
