No Defense

By: Robert Kagan and William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Here?s some unsolicited advice for two old friends, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz: Resign. Right now that may be the best service they could perform for their country, for it may be the only way to focus the attention of the American people - and the Bush administration - on the impending evisceration of the American military. If our suggestion sounds extreme, consider the following.

A Cowering Superpower

By: Reuel Marc Gerecht

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: In December 1999, the Clinton administration issued a worldwide terrorist alert to Americans overseas advising them to avoid crowded millennial celebrations. Bomb-toting Islamic militants under the banner of the Saudi terrorist Usama bin Laden had declared war, so Americans were to stay discreetly indoors while other Westerners partied. In Israel and Jordan, American Christians were strongly advised to avoid any public manifestation of their faith. Vexed by the ...

Put Your Money Where Your War Is

By: Gary Schmitt and Tom Donnelly

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: President Bush has made plain from the start that the war on terrorism will be long and large. What he seems reluctant to admit is that it will also be expensive. Since September 11, the United States has routed the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan, committed thousands of troops to assist in the fight against terror groups in the Philippines, Georgia, and elsewhere, and stationed aircraft in Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Bulgaria. The U.S. military presence in ...

The No-Nukes Party

By: Daniel Mckivergan

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Suppose a Few Years from Now, a nation hostile to the United States and its allies is manufacturing biological, chemical, or nuclear weapons in a super-hardened bunker deep underground. And suppose the miscreant nation has ties to terrorist organizations dedicated to killing as many Americans as they can. The U.S. president judges the facility a major national security threat and asks the military to come up with options for taking out the complex should force be necessary.

Less Central, More Intelligent

By: Gary Schmitt

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: When The Senate Intelligence Committee released its report on prewar assessments of Iraq?s WMD programs and Iraq?s ties to terrorism, it generated a host of front-page stories, news commentaries, and political debate - as it should have. Even in its heavily redacted form, the report is well worth reading, providing a rare and detailed depiction of a traditionally very closed intelligence bureaucracy. But the report is also worth reading because not all of its fi...

Why Asia Is Fast Replacing Europe as Americas First Strategic Concern

By: ew American Century

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Next week, a meeting will take place in Riga, Latvia to discuss the pending expansion of the Atlantic alliance to include as many as 10 new members whose citizens were formerly under Soviet dominion. That the meeting is taking place at all is testament to the success of NATO, a welcome reminder as European capitals and Washington worry about their diverging world views and NATO?s future capabilities and mission. As serious as these problems are a profound develo...

A Crisis Made in Beijing

By: Gary Schmitt

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: On January 16, Taiwan?s president, Chen Shui-bian, announced the wording of the referendums he intends to put on the ballot in March, when the people of Taiwan go to the polls to elect a president. The referendums will ask whether, in the face of the missile threat from the mainland, Taiwan should purchase more advanced anti-missile weapons, and whether its government should negotiate with the mainland to create a new framework for peaceful and stable relations.

Clinton's Sorry Excuse for a China Policy

By: Robert Kagan and William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Bill Clinton is great at apologizing to foreign governments for the policies of his predecessors. A year ago, on a trip to Africa, he apologized for past American support for some African dictatorships. Last week in Central America, he apologized for U.S. support of the Guatemalan military during the Cold War. Clinton is not the first American president to engage in this embarrassing and unwarranted self-flagellation. In 1979, after the Sandinistas came to power...

The National Interest

By: obert Kagan

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The war in Kosovo is going badly. The Clinton administration has compounded its initial disastrous misjudgment of Slobodan Milosevic with an inadequate military strategy driven more by fear of negative polls than by the imperative of victory. The Weekly Standard has learned that General Wesley Clark has told senior administration officials that NATO can?t win without ground troops, but the Clinton administration continues to quake at the thought of a ground war.

The Present Danger

By: ew American Century

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Last week, while many China experts inside and outside the Clinton administration were confidently predicting that China would not escalate the conflict with Taiwan, we warned that Beijing might well be contemplating an attack. This turned out to be correct. According to the Washington Post and New York Times, Chinese officials have been trying to gauge Washington?s reaction to a possible Chinese attack on one of Taiwan?s offshore islands. Now, the conventional ...

Autocratic Generals and Democratic Armies. Men in Arms

By: Thomas Donnelly

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The relation between a democratic nation and a democratic army is paradoxical. Democratic peoples are reluctant to go to war, and yet, when roused to fight, they often reveal a surprising martial spirit and skill. ?A long war,? as Alexis de Tocqueville put it, ?has the same effect on a democratic army as a revolution has on the people themselves. It breaks down rules and makes outstanding men come forward.? This is the grand theme of the classicist Victor Davis ...

Saddams Impending Victory

By: Robert Kagan

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: ?With dictators, nothing succeeds like success.? That observation, by Adolf Hitler, is not as trite as it sounds. Hitler was referring to his own successful remilitarization of the Rhineland in 1936. Before he moved into the Rhineland, Hitler was securely ?in his box,? as the Clinton administration would say. Pursuant to the Versailles Treaty and the Locarno pact of 1926, Germany had been forced to keep this territory demilitarized as a guarantee against renewed...

Congress Versus Iraq

By: John R. Bolton

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: During The Holiday Season, Iraq all but slipped from public view - doubtless to quiet prayers of thanks from the Clinton administration. Since Saddam Hussein effectively barred United Nations weapons inspectors from carrying out their responsibilities in late October, the administration?s strategy has been to strike a macho pose for domestic consumption but do next to nothing diplomatically, and as little as possible militarily, to end Iraq?s evasion of the Secu...

The Good Fight

By: Robert Kagan

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: President-elect George W. Bush?s aides often compare their boss to Ronald Reagan. Some of the time, this is just a defense against the widespread perception that Bush knows little about foreign policy. Reagan, they suggest, didn?t know the details either, and look how well he did. More recently, they have been suggesting that Bush will have a management style similar to Reagan?s. He will delegate a lot of authority to competent cabinet officers and advisers and ...

Spend More on Defense Now

By: Gary Schmitt and Tom Donnelly

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: To His Credit, George W. Bush made national defense an issue in his campaign. By raising the problem of military preparedness and, now, choosing a forceful defense secretary in Donald Rumsfeld, the incoming president has put himself in a strong position to follow through on an important policy priority and win a significant political victory.

Saddam Winsagain

By: Robert Kagan

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Last Week, Pentagon Officials provided damage assessments of the four-day missile strike against Iraq. But they focused their attention on the wrong country. The most significant damage was not to be found in Iraq, where nearly half a billion dollars worth of U.S. missiles destroyed a handful of empty Republican Guard barracks and may have damaged some missile production facilities. These will be rebuilt in a matter of months. What will not be repaired, however,...

Selling China the Rope

By: Henry Sokolski

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Presidential spokesman Mike McCurry last week justified the Clinton administration policy that allowed the transfer of satellite technology to the Chinese military with the hoary ?they started it? defense. ?This administration,? said McCurry, ?has pursued the exact same policy pursued by the Bush administration.?

Clinton's Foreign Policy Cont

By: ew American Century

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Six weeks into a new administration is, of course, too soon to start making a definitive judgment about its foreign policy. But it is not too soon to start worrying that President Bush may be content to continue walking down dangerous paths in foreign and defense policy laid out over the past eight years by Bill Clinton. Conservative columnists across the country have been crowing about how refreshingly different Bush is from his predecessor. In some important r...

Kofi Hour

By: John R. Bolton

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The reason U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan went to Baghdad is not hard to understand: He believed his job required him to make every effort to avoid the use of force against Iraq. Whether one agrees with his view or not, there is no doubt that Annan reflects the ethos in what many U.N. employees reverently call ?this house of peace.?
