The Bucks Stop Here

By: Robert Kagan

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: A couple of months ago, House majority whip Tom DeLay gave a powerful speech decrying the Clinton administration?s appeasement of China, and making a strong case for a much tougher policy toward Beijing. Now, the same Tom DeLay is working night and day to help Clinton cement his ?legacy? by passing permanent trade status for China. DeLay, of course, insists there is no contradiction. Borrowing the woolly-headed, utopian arguments usually deployed by Clinton and ...

Newt Gingrichs Last Boondoggle

By: Thomas Donnelly

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: During the decade since the Cold War ended, the United States has searched in vain for a new national strategy. The Pentagon has undergone a Base Force review, a Bottom- Up review, a review of service roles and missions, and an independent National Defense Panel review. At the moment it is readying itself for a second Quadrennial Defense Review, whose main virtue appears to be that it comes around every four years; it?s the strategic equivalent of Bill Murray?s ...

The Senate Republicans Finest Hour

By: Robert Kagan

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Last week?s rejection by the Senate of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty was the most responsible and courageous action by that body since the 1991 vote authorizing the Gulf War. In the face of a hostile media, a well-organized and well-funded international ?arms control? industry, polls showing majority support for the treaty, and explicit threats by Democrats and the White House to use the vote against Republicans in the 2000 elections, Republican senators cas...

America at War What the Attack on the Uss Cole Tells Us.

By: Thomas Donnelly

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The Dust from the Rubble of the Berlin Wall had barely settled when, in December 1989, George Bush inaugurated the post-Cold War era by sending thousands of American Rangers and paratroopers to Panama to arrest a petty tyrant and drug dealer whose thugs had threatened U.S. soldiers? lives. In the decade since, the frequency and duration of scattered U.S. constabulary missions abroad has increased dramatically - threefold, by Pentagon reckoning. But as the respon...

Testing Time in Bosnia

By: ew American Century

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: For the first time in more than a year, the prospects for a successful, lasting and even a relatively just peace in Bosnia have improved. In recent weeks, one indicted war criminal was captured by NATO troops, and another was killed trying to resist capture. Meanwhile, the Bosnian Serbs, hitherto united in their opposition to the Dayton peace plan and NATO?s efforts to enforce it, have sharply divided under pressure from the United States and its allies. Last we...

Permanent Normal Appeasement

By: Robert Kagan

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: This week the Senate will vote on granting China permanent most-favored-nation trade status. The vote comes a lot later than the Clinton administration and China?s friends in the Senate wanted. Too close to the elections, you see, and therefore too likely to be infected by election-year ?politics,? i.e., the actual views of the American people. In poll after poll, Americans express keen distrust of China and skepticism about the benefits of extending permanent normal trade relations.

Remember the Bush Doctrine

By: Robert Kagan and William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: U.N. secretary general Kofi Annan is happy with President Bush?s apparent Middle East policy switch. So is European Union president Romano Prodi, French president Jacques Chirac, and the British foreign ministry. The New York Times editorial page is very happy. And, really, that?s what American foreign policy is all about, isn?t it? Until now, that?s not how George W. Bush saw things. One of Bush?s most admirable and most important qualities as president has bee...

A War to Win

By: Robert Kagan and William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The first thing that must be said is this: The nation has reacted magnificently to the horrific events of September 11. True, there has been some of the usual hand-wringing, on editorial pages and in Congress. To listen to some commentators, you?d think the Bush administration was about to embark on a mad orgy of international bloodletting, spraying bombs in all directions without rhyme or reason, save the lust for vengeance. Retired general Charles G. Boyd, for...

The Coalition Trap

By: Robert Kagan and William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Can the United States win a war on terrorism while winking at some terrorists and cozying up to nations that support them? Can the United States effectively fight terrorism and reward terrorism at the same time? You shouldn?t have to ponder those questions very long. The certain answer is no. But the Bush administration isn?t certain. In its effort to build the broadest possible coalition of nations in support of the narrow objective of destroying Osama bin Lade...

The Gathering Storm

By: Robert Kagan and William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Here?s a prediction. When all is said and done, the conflict in Afghanistan will be to the war on terrorism what the North Africa campaign was to World War II: an essential beginning on the path to victory. But compared with what looms over the horizon - a wide-ranging war in locales from Central Asia to the Middle East and, unfortunately, back again to the United States - Afghanistan will prove but an opening battle.

Getting Serious

By: Robert Kagan and William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Is the Bush administration really getting serious about fighting the war on terrorism? On the one hand, there was still plenty of happy-talk flying fast and furious this past week. President Bush?s speech Thursday night was upbeat and spared him media attacks for not addressing the nation on homeland security. But the American people don?t really need to be told how to lead their lives. They need to see their government doing its job, both at home and abroad. Wh...

New American Century and U.S. Committee for Hong Kong

By: R. James Woolsey

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: No population has expressed a greater desire for democracy than have the people of Hong Kong, through elections, opinion polls and peaceful demonstrations. No population is more prepared to enjoy the rights and undertake the responsibilities of democracy than the people of Hong Kong. Far from leading to chaos, as the Chinese government has suggested, democracy will provide Hong Kong with the good governance needed for stability and economic prosperity. Democracy...

Regime Change in Iran

By: Reuel Marc Gerecht

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Though Osama bin Laden, Afghanistan, Israel, and Iraq have commanded our attention since September 11, it is always good to remind ourselves that the most consequential country in the Muslim Middle East is Iran. This has been true, with a few intermissions, for a thousand years. And since the victory of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and his revolution in 1979, Iran has held center stage in the current Muslim drama: How will God and man interact in a modern theocra...

Going Soft on Iran

By: Reuel Marc Gerecht

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: According to the newspapers and the CIA, Iranian ?hard-liners? dealt their country?s reform movement and fledgling democracy a heavy, perhaps lethal, blow on February 20. With over 2,000 candidates ?disqualified? before the parliamentary elections even took place, the ruling clerical elite ensured that the reformers, who?ve won office and national attention since the presidential election of Mohammad Khatami in May 1997, would no longer dominate the parliament, ...

Foreign Affairs

By: ew American Century

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: It is wrong to dismiss criticism of America?s current Iraq policy as partisan just as it would have been wrong to dismiss opposition to the gulf war as mere politics (the rollback fantasy January / February 1999).

Going Wobbly

By: Robert Kagan

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Is the Bush administration going wobbly? Is the president preparing to back off the bold pledges he made to the American people four months ago in his State of the Union address? The president warned us then that the clock was ticking in Iraq. Saddam Hussein was working hard to acquire weapons of mass destruction. Bin Laden, al Qaeda, and other terrorists were eager to get their hands on such weapons. And it was only a matter of time before the ultimate horror o...

The Coming War with Saddam

By: Stephen F. Hayes

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: A curious thing seems to have happened on the way to the war against Saddam Hussein. Despite President Bush?s oft-stated commitment to ?regime change? in Iraq, media reports have been rife with speculation that military action is unlikely, maybe even off the table. These reports continued to appear last week even as the second-ranking Pentagon official was dispatched to Turkey - a critical ally in any military offensive against Saddam Hussein - and spoke openly ...
