After ISIL, How Likely is Another 9/11?

| July 03, 2018

Many Americans wonder: Why has there been no mega-terrorist attack on the United States since Sept. 11, 2001? In the wake of that attack, which killed 3,000, anyone who had offered to bet that 17 years on there would be no terrorist attack on the United States that killed more than 100 people could have gotten 1,000:1 odds.

Grading the Singapore Summit: Compared to What?

| June 15, 2018

In the hyperpolarized state of American politics and policy debate, both critics and supporters of the Trump administration have become so predictable that they are now background noise. If required to summarize my assessment of the Trump-Kim summit in one line, it would be: oversold and undervalued. Despite their best efforts, his critics haven’t come close to matching Trump’s preposterous claim that “There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.”

The Myth of the Liberal Order

| July/August 2018

Among the debates that have swept the U.S. foreign policy community since the beginning of the Trump administration, alarm about the fate of the liberal international rules-based order has emerged as one of the few fixed points. From the international relations scholar G. John Ikenberry’s claim that “for seven decades the world has been dominated by a western liberal order” to U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s call in the final days of the Obama administration to “act urgently to defend the liberal international order,” this banner waves atop most discussions of the United States’ role in the world.

On Monday night at 9 p.m. Eastern—9 a.m. Tuesday morning in Singapore—Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un will finally meet face to face.

If this were a heavyweight boxing match, we’d need a bettor’s guide before wagering on the outcome.
