Kosovo, Russia, and the Last Grasps of American Unipolarity

Kosovo, Russia, and the Last Grasps of American Unipolarity

Kosovo is the latest irritant in what was already a deteriorating U.S.-Russia relationship. Disagreements over energy policy, Iran, a U.S. missile-defense system in central Europe, a further round of NATO expansion, as well as Russia’s own domestic political and economic evolution have all contributed to a growing chill in the air. Although few in Washington recognize it, the Kosovo affair might also represent the twilight of the U.S. worldview of the 1990s—the so-called "unipolar moment." Dealing with its aftermath, especially in the U.S.-Russia relationship, will test whether American politicians and policymakers are prepared to adapt to the realities of a much more multipolar 21st century. So far, the jury is out.

Islamo-Foosball Awareness Week

Islamo-Foosball Awareness Week

Although I admit to having given my vote last fall to Rick Santorum in his unsuccessful campaign to hold on to his U.S. Senate seat, I have been appalled by his recent harping on the menace of "Islamofascism." Santorum has lent himself to a largely neoconservative-funded campaign, headed by journalist David Horowitz and Washington lobbyist Frank Gaffney, to make us aware, in Horowitz's words, that "Islamofascism is the greatest danger America has ever faced."
