Pressuring Taiwan, Appeasing Beijing

By: William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: ?We?ve apologized, we?ve expressed our regret, we?ve offered compensation, we?re talking about compensation, we?ve provided a report? - so said State Department spokesman Jamie Rubin last week describing the U.S. response to the accidental bombing of China?s embassy in Belgrade. But his plaintive words just about sum up the Clinton administration?s current policy toward China. The official posture of prostration before Beijing - the China hands call it ?engageme...

Lessons of a Nuclear North Korea

By: William Kristol and Gary Schmitt

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Last week, the White House announced that North Korea has admitted what critics of the Clinton ?engagement? ruefully predicted eight years ago: Pyongyang retains a secret nuclear weapons program, in defiance of its 1994 pledge to forswear nukes. Since the disclosure became public, the Bush administration has been properly stern and sober, indicating that North Korea?s behavior must stop and must not be rewarded. But the administration has also felt the need to r...

Silence of the Lambs

By: William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: It is curious indeed when a president can review the state of our nation for nearly 90 minutes, propose dozens of new ways for the government to spend billions of dollars, yet fail to utter a single word about the need for an increase in defense spending. Thursday night, the president again revealed himself the master of the minutiae of domestic policy, doling out small sums to develop the Delta in Mississippi and to discourage deadbeat dads in Minnesota. Americ...

A Distinctly American Internationalism

By: William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: George W. Bush?s November 19 speech at the Reagan Library represents the strongest and clearest articulation of a policy of American global leadership by a major political figure since the collapse of the Soviet Empire. In his call for renewed American strength, confidence, and leadership, Bush stakes a claim to the legacy of Ronald Reagan. Like the other major Republican presidential candidates, Bush unequivocally rejects isolationism. More important may be Bus...

$87 Billion Well Spent

By: William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The Bush administration is asking Congress for an $87 billion appropriation to cover near-term troop deployment and reconstruction costs in Iraq. Let?s stipulate a few things about that request right off the bat: One: Foreign aid is politically unpopular. Two: Any large appropriation request, foreign or domestic, contains individual line items that can easily be made to look extravagant or outright ridiculous. Three: Occupation and reconstruction efforts in Iraq...

By: Charles Krauthammer

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: There Are Few Museums as powerful as the Holocaust Museum in Washington, but it contains what appears to be a structural oddity. The exhibit fills three floors. The middle floor covers the Holocaust itself; the last, the rescue and aftermath. But the entire first floor, which can take hours to go through, consists of the prelude, the 1930s and the relentless Nazi campaign to delegitimize the very existence of Jews.

Win It

By: Robert Kagan and William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: According to the polls, a majority of the American people support sending U.S. and NATO ground troops into Yugoslavia to defeat Serb forces and stop the slaughter and ethnic cleansing of the Kosovar Albanians. Or, to put it another way: to win this war against Slobodan Milosevic and his army of butchers by whatever means necessary. No doubt much of this popular sentiment comes from Americans watching the daily horrors of Kosovo unfold before their eyes, while th...

Democracy Now

By: Robert Kagan and William Kristol

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: We do not know how close the American effort in Iraq may be to irrecoverable failure. We are inclined to believe, however, that the current Washington wisdom - that the United States has already failed and there is nothing to do now but find a not-too damaging way to extricate ourselves - is far too pessimistic, a panicked reaction to the difficulties in Falluja and with Moktada al-Sadr, as well as to the disaster of Abu Ghraib. We are also appalled at the caval...

Selling China the Rope

By: Henry Sokolski

Government Reference Publication

State of Terror

By: Gary Schmitt

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: In spite of the fact that virtually every major act of terrorism over the past thirty years has been state-supported or state-directed, Americans and their elected officials continue to interpret the phenomenon as the violent, random deeds of the world?s lunatic fringe. It?s as though we would rather see terrorism as akin to natural disasters than to policy made in an adversary?s war room.

Why Iraq If Saddam Stays in Power, The War on Terrorism Will Have ...

By: Gary Schmitt

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Shortly Before getting on a plane to fly to New Jersey from Europe in June 2000, Mohamed Atta, the lead hijacker of the first jet airliner to slam into the World Trade Center and, apparently, the lead conspirator in the attacks of September 11, met with a senior Iraqi intelligence official. This was no chance encounter. Rather than take a flight from Germany, where he had been living, Atta traveled to Prague, almost certainly for the purpose of meeting there wit...

Reagans Ray Gun How the Cold War Was Won

By: Gary Schmitt

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Frances Fitzgerald?s thesis is not subtle. The title of her book, Way Out There in the Blue, is taken from Arthur Miller?s Death of a Salesman: ?He?s a man way out there in the blue, riding on a smile and a shoeshine.? This account of the birth of the Strategic Defense Initiative and its role in bringing down the Soviet Empire makes Ronald Reagan out to be the Willy Loman of the Cold War. He was a salesman-politician without peer, capable of peddling to the nati...

A War with a Purpose

By: Gary Schmitt

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: President Bush was right Wednesday morning when he looked up from his cabinet meeting to announce: ?The deliberate and deadly attacks which were carried out yesterday against our country were more than acts of terror. They were acts of war.? But war to what end? What do the initiators of this war seek to achieve? What must we accomplish in response?

Baghdad Is Not Mogadishu

By: Gary Schmitt and Tom Donnelly

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: In a Flurry of recent articles speculating on the nature of a potential U.S. invasion of Iraq, reporters and commentators have raised a ?nightmare? scenario: that a battle for Baghdad would turn into a second Mogadishu. With virtually no chance to survive - let alone win - a force-on-force conflict outside of Iraq?s capital, Saddam would retreat to the close quarters of the streets of Baghdad, the thinking goes. There, the Iraqi army would exact a tremendous pri...

Spend More on Defense Now

By: Gary Schmitt and Tom Donnelly

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: To His Credit, George W. Bush made national defense an issue in his campaign. By raising the problem of military preparedness and, now, choosing a forceful defense secretary in Donald Rumsfeld, the incoming president has put himself in a strong position to follow through on an important policy priority and win a significant political victory.
