Did George W. Bush Cause the Current Border Crisis?

In the Daily Signal, AHS speaker James Carafano discusses the recent history of U.S. immigration legislation:

"Blaming the 2008 legislation for the current crisis is more than a bit overblown. But it’s catnip to those seeking to politicize the crisis."



Obama does not accept war for what it is

In the Washington Post, AHS adviser Eliot Cohen explains why the Obama administration simply cannot accept that war is war:

"War is war. We may wish that it could be waged like an 18th-century duel, with exquisite protocols and rules, and scrupulously circumscribed uses of violence, but it stubbornly remains what it became in the 19th and 20th centuries: a ferocious struggle among nations."


Putin’s Treaty Problem

On the Center for Strategic and International Studies website, AHS speaker Thomas Karako reflects on Russia’s international law treaty violations:

"Russia is obligated to honor its international agreements. The now-acknowledged INF violations, however, are the latest in Russia’s long pattern of dishonoring treaties."


Obama needs to work on his foreign policy, not his golf game

In the Los Angeles Times, AHS adviser Max Boot reveals that the president is golfing while his foreign policy is burning:

Why is Obama’s Foreign Policy So Unpopular?

In Ricochet, AHS speaker Colin Dueck explains why the public support of President Obama’s foreign policy has reached new lows:

“The White House isn’t only suffering from coincidentally bad news overseas. Rather, Obama’s foreign policy choices and decisions from the very start helped plant the seeds for numerous international challenges, and while he got away with it through 2012, the consequences are now coming back to haunt him – not just abroad, but politically at home.”


Reassurance and Resolve in East Asia

In Project Syndicate, AHS speaker and Brookings institution fellow Michael O'Hanlon argues for a more balanced US strategy in China:

"As territorial frictions involving China and many of its neighbors persist in the East and South China Seas, the United States needs a clearer regional strategy."



Could Shooting Down Two More Planes Change the Game in Ukraine?

In Foreign Policy, AHS speaker and Duke University faculty adviser Peter Feaver discusses the White House's mismanagement of the crisis in Ukraine:

"The shoot-down of MH17 was a potential game-changer, but so far President Obama has responded with an abundance of caution, and our European allies have been even more restrained."
