    Trump's foreign policy often gets discussed as isolationist for its skepticism of allies and foreign entanglements, or as realist for its obsession with self-interest and with cold cost-benefit. In either case, the theory is meant to explain why Trump so disdains virtually every facet of America's international role, from its alliance networks to its foreign military bases and security guarantees. But the more you hear from Trump, the clearer it becomes that something else is going on: He either does not believe in or simply does not understand the international order that has governed the world since the end of...

    I am sure that when John Cameron Swayze began anchoring the Camel News Caravan at NBC in 1949 he never in his wildest imagination would have thought that there ever could be a day when a flag covered with dildos and butt plugs at a gay pride parade would become the focus of a television news broadcast. However such was the case on Saturday when a CNN reporter confused a parody ISIS flag with the real deal at a London gay pride parade and "treated" the audience to a detailed analysis, including an interview with a national security analyst, for over six minutes....

    The United States comes up constantly when you talk to Russians about their country's place in the world. But the conversations tend to go a lot differently than many Americans might expect. In the US, the common view is that Russians feel aggrieved by the loss of the Soviet Union and all the respect that came with being a global superpower. Russia's acts of aggression in Europe, in this telling, are all about challenging the American-led order as a way to prove Russia's might and importance. This aggression is wildly popular among Russians, many Americans believe, because it makes them...

    The General Electric-sponsored explanatory website is again facing criticism for biased and hostile reporting about Israel following a Wednesday article that accused the Jewish state of committing war crimes against the Palestinians following the murder by Hamas of three kidnapped Israeli teenagers earlier this week. Vox writer Max Fisher accused Israel of waging “collective punishment” against the Palestinians and preferring war to peace following Israel’s targeted military strikes on Hamas terrorists responsible for murdering the children and launching rocket attacks on citizens. Fisher argued that air strikes against Hamas are not justified because the killings were carried out by...
