A lame-duck president’s lesson to the world: the picture Obama paints

The world is throbbing all around. Spectators and part-takers alike glance swiftly from one escalation of events to another. Dynamics are intensified. Stakes are perceived as increasingly high. Emotions turn into tensions. Points converge and tend to form coherent sequences. Then, the sequences disrupt; ambiguity sets in and transcends into uncertainty, insecurity. Tensions escalate, so […]

How does Putin do it?

An expected 100 million Americans and probably an equal or greater number of overseas viewers will be watching the first presidential debate tonight between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Expected at the least are fireworks and the likely shedding of a great deal of rhetorical blood, bile and vitriol. But no matter how the debate […]

Don’t let’s start a new Cold War with Russia

Following the latest revelations of email hacking that appear to be Russian inspired (full disclosure: I was party to some of Colin Powell’s emails that were stolen and released), the media was reporting that the United States was increasing its espionage assets against Moscow. Despite the fragile agreement struck with Moscow over a Syrian ceasefire […]

Of hacks, hackers and Russians

Last week’s “Commanders-in-Chief” forum hosted by NBC-TV in prime time sought to probe presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on national security issues. Sadly, the moderator Matt Lauer was ill-prepared and unsuited for the task. Instead, he wasted too much time grilling Hillary on her e-mails and not enough time challenging the elusive and […]

The US Elections, Trump and Hillary, interview with Ron Aledo

Who you think will win? Trump about 60% chances. He is winning the blue collar vote in the swing/purple states. That blue collar vote is key on those states and those states are the ones that decide the general elections in the U.S. This is a phenomenon we did not see since Reagan. White workers […]

Love vs. hate; Clinton vs. Trump

The visit of Donald Trump to Mexico and his extraordinarily clumsy speech on immigration that followed Wednesday evening have pre-empted a column on Russia. While Mr. Trump may have reinforced his base, if elected, he has set in place a non-declared war with Mexico. This is not 1846 and the Mexican-American War we won. Nor […]

Russia from a Russian perspective

NATO’s former Supreme Allied Commander Europe and today the Dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in Medford, Massachusetts, retired Admiral James Stavridis, observes that understanding Russia today can be aided by reading the great Russian writers of the past. A variant of this theme is to view Russia through the lens of […]

Interview with Ron Aledo about the American geopolitical relation with China and Russia?

In dealing with China or Russia, who would be a better candidate, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? And why? Trump. His worldview is more similar to Putin’s one. Trump with his America First view will avoid confrontation with Russia just like Neocons and left-wing interventionist do now. Neocons see Russia as evil and the enemy […]

The 2017 edition of the Strategikon Annual Book – The Year of Challenging Choices

It’s not easy to be a leader, but the solution is closer than people may think and it has to do with returning to some good old fashioned traits that shaped leaders in past decades: will power, values and vision. Launched at the Good Governance Summit, The Year of Challenging Choices strives to understand the fault lines in international relations and the relevant actors, as they are and not how they appear to be.
