When Congress should assert itself and when it shouldn’t. Paul Pillar compares …
The fixation on Warren as the hoped-for progressive challenger to Clinton underscores how few prominent elected doves there are in the Democratic Party today.
Neither party has much incentive to tone down its attacks on the other over foreign policy and national security.
Romney's failing wasn't that he was too vague on foreign policy, but that he demonstrated how little he knew by making detailed criticisms that made no sense.
Future Republican candidates would be foolish to listen to Romney foreign policy advisers.
The impulse to meddle in the affairs of other nations "for their own good" is not limited to just one party or foreign policy tradition.
Endorsing a British exit from the EU won't give the Tories a landslide.
If the GOP falls short of taking control of the Senate next month, the result will be explained away as a fluke.
The 2014 election is shaping up to be an election mostly about nothing.
Hawks need Obama to be some hybrid holdover from the 1970s, because they are still arguing with their old opponents from forty years ago.
Resuming full economic and diplomatic relations with one of our closest neighbors is not a reward to the country's government.

There is less British support for withdrawing from the EU now than there was a few years ago for reasons that have nothing to do with UKIP.
In light of this latest embarrassment, Poland is definitely better off being represented abroad by someone else.
The real problem isn't that Iran doesn't take American threats seriously, but that an attack on Iran would be illegal and unpardonably stupid.
The House of Commons vote is a sign that Israel is losing ground among some of its otherwise reliable supporters in the West.
