  • When Wings Fail and Accountability Follows
    by Richard Basas on April 12, 2019 at 3:24 pm

    One of the first jetliners after the Second World War was the British made Comet. It was a symbol of the post war era, and a new way of seeing the world after the Blitz and over a decade of an economy that focused purely on need as opposed to any sort of luxury. The […] The post When Wings Fail and Accountability Follows appeared first on Foreign Policy Blogs. […]

  • Foreign Policy and the Green New Deal
    by Jim Quirk on April 3, 2019 at 5:19 pm

    In their support of the Green New Deal, did some Democrats call for a return to American global leadership – or even endorse American Exceptionalism? First-term Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D.-NY) and forty-year veteran Senator Ed Markey (D.- Mass.) put forth a dramatic re-imagining of the approach the U.S. government should take toward climate change and […] The post Foreign Policy and the Green New Deal appeared first […]

    by Rachel Avraham on April 2, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    After ISIS was forced out of Baghouz, Syria, the murderous terror group is starting to move its forces to Africa and Asia.   After the last ISIS-held area in Syria fell in Baghouz, many people in the West are under the impression that the murderous terror group notorious for beheading Westerners, raping Yezidis and Christians en […] The post Is ISIS terror spreading its tentacles to other parts of the world? appeared first on […]

  • So You’ve Been Fined Again by the EU
    by Richard Basas on March 28, 2019 at 4:24 pm

    It is remarkable that large corporations do not employ many people in their organisations that have the foresight to warn their Directors that what they might be doing will not only subject them to record breaking fines by the EU, but will also cost them billions. I had time to ponder this while going through […] The post So You’ve Been Fined Again by the EU appeared first on Foreign Policy Blogs. […]

  • Will Ukraine’s Far Right Parties Fail Again in 2019?
    by Andreas Umland on March 27, 2019 at 4:31 pm

    Ever since the beginning of its armed struggle against Moscow during World War II, the Ukrainian far right has been used by the Kremlin as a bogeyman. The political radicalism, war-time mass crimes, fascist leanings, and manifest militancy of historic Ukrainian ultra-nationalism has been employed by Soviet and post-Soviet Russian agitation among Russian and Western […] The post Will Ukraine’s Far Right Parties Fail Again in 2019?

  • Ukraine’s 2019 Presidential Elections: The Yuri Tymoshenko Risk
    by Andreas Umland on March 26, 2019 at 6:30 pm

Cynical puppet masters are prepared to risk the outbreak of a major domestic civil conflict for the sake of securing re-election of Ukraine’s incumbent president. The relatively pluralistic political competition that emerged after the […] The post […]

  • The Dangers of a Future Mission
    by Richard Basas on March 21, 2019 at 8:38 pm

    A few short weeks ago, a shipment of S-400 missiles from Russia to China were lost at sea. While the shipment was replaced and likely covered by some type of insurance, the notable issue should be that S-400 missiles are now being exported outside of Russia. The export of the older S-300 system was always […] The post The Dangers of a Future Mission appeared first on Foreign Policy Blogs. […]

    by Rachel Avraham on March 15, 2019 at 6:24 pm
