    Crashing Obama's Nuclear Wedding

    Raising concerns about a new nuclear arms treaty is considered declasse. It’s about as welcome as a wedding crasher who questions the groom’s choice of a bride. Like weddings, nuclear treaties are supposedly joyous occasions. Posing questions is treated as an affront to the very nobility of the enterprise (although … More

    This Treaty was Over Before it STARTed

    Shortly after Presidents Barack Obama and Dmitri Medvedev signed the New START agreement this morning, the Kremlin released the following statement: The Treaty between the Russian Federation and the United States of America on the Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms signed in Prague on April 8, 2010, can … More

    START and Beyond: Obama Abandons US Power

    The New START Treaty that Presidents Obama and Medvedev are going to sign tomorrow in Prague sets the stage for the big show, the April 12-13 non-proliferation summit in Washington. Both events are deeply flawed. Both are theater productions for Obama to push through his unrealistic agenda of “getting to … More

    Russia: New START Clearly Links Missile Reduction with Missile Defense

    This Thursday President Barack Obama is scheduled to sign a follow on agreement to the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty in Prague with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev. Since the day agreement on the new treaty was leaked by the Kremlin, the White House has been claiming that the treaty “does not … More

    Obama: Still a ways to go in Central and Eastern Europe

    If President Obama thinks that signing his prized arms control treaty with Russia on Czech soil will repair the damage he’s done to relations with Central and Eastern Europe, he’s wrong. Cutting a deal with the Russian bear in Prague is hardly the way to tell your allies that it’s … More

    Foreign Thinking Missing in Foreign Policy

    Treaties are just words. Deeds matter more. We were supposed to have learned that lesson from the fallout after World War I. That global conflict was billed as “the war to end all wars.” The Versailles Treaty was meant to seal the deal. But its words couldn’t stop the German … More

    The Nuclear Counter Summit

    One year after President Obama announced his desire to rid the world of nuclear weapons, his nuclear agenda is taking center-stage in American foreign policy. This week, the president will sign a new arms control agreement with Russia in Prague before he hosts the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, DC. … More

    Chavez to Putin: "I Want to Be Your Friend"

    Almost a year ago, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez told President Obama, “I want to be your friend.”  Today the much-photographed handshake at the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad has become a cold shoulder.   Sadly like much of the Obama Administration’s foreign policy, relations with arch-anti-American Hugo Chavez have fallen … More

    START: How Did We Get Here?

    When the United States and Russia meet in Prague on April 8 to sign the follow-on Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), Presidents Obama and Medvedev will finalize a process that took about a year to complete. Although some claim New START is a monumental step along the “road to zero” … More

    After Moscow: Reject Knee Jerk Security

    Yesterday, a series of bombings in Moscow subway stations killed 39 and injured more than 70. The bombings, conducted by two female suicide bombers, are undoubtedly a horrible tragedy for the families of the victims. What followed, however, was a decision by transit companies across the United States to ramp … More
