Saudi Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Turki al-Malki displays pieces of what he said were Iranian cruise missiles and drones recovered from an attack on Saudi oil facilities, during a press conference in Riyadh on Sept. 18, 2019.
Saudi Arabia Considers the Consequences of a Strike on Iran
Two weeks after a devastating attack on Saudi oil facilities at Abqaiq and Khurais, one major question remains up in the air: What are the United States and Saudi Arabia going to do in response? Both are attempting to make a compelling case that Iran was directly culpable for the attacks. With proof of Iran's guilt, they can further isolate Tehran diplomatically, potentially paving the way for an aggressive response. Saudi Arabia, however, is caught between a rock and a hard place. If it does nothing, Iran will likely continue its aggression against the major U.S. partner in a bid to force the United States to ease its sanctions -- after all, Riyadh can hardly attempt to de-escalate tensions with Tehran given that the latter's main target is the U.S. measures that the kingdom has little control over. But if Saudi Arabia strikes back at Iran to reestablish its deterrence, it

Debra and Marc Tice hold a news conference in Beirut on Dec. 4, 2018, as part of their enduring effort to find information about their journalist son, Austin Tice, who disappeared in Syria in August 2012.
The Enduring Search for a Missing American Journalist in Syria
Debra and Marc Tice left Beirut last week without their son. It was a disappointing, if unsurprising, end to their eighth trip to the Lebanese capital in the six years since Austin Tice, a freelance journalist and law student, vanished while covering the war in Syria. The Tices knocked on doors, hosted a press conference and applied for Syrian visas to plead for the Syrian government's assistance in freeing their captive son. Their meetings in Beirut produced little more than sympathy, their dignified presentation to the press corps received minimal coverage and the Syrian government did not grant them visas. Now, they anticipate their sixth Christmas at home in Houston without the eldest of their seven children. Austin Tice's disappearance and prolonged captivity constitute a mystery that cries out for a solution. It began with his decision in 2012, just before the summer vacation preceding his final year at Georgetown University's

Baseball player Nick Hundley and umpire Jeff Kellogg watch a drone flying over Detroit's Comerica Park in 2014.
The Sports World Is Keeping an Eye on Drones
Most observers of geopolitics are well aware of the military importance of unmanned aerial vehicles, to use the military nomenclature for drones. They are famous for their roles as surveillance platforms, used by militaries and intelligence services alike. But they also possess a number of other potential uses. The U.S. Navy, for example, is developing an unmanned tanker that can be deployed on an aircraft carrier. In addition, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is exploring tactics related to the deployment of large numbers of very small drones through its Offensive Swarm-Enabled Tactics program. The qualities that make drones useful in military operations have caught the attention of the sports world.

U.S. President Bill Clinton and Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev shake hands at the White House on Feb. 14, 1994, after Nazarbayev presented Clinton with Kazakhstan's accession to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.
The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty at 50
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman caused a media stir in March when he warned that Saudi Arabia will develop a nuclear weapon if Iran does, raising the troubling possibility of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. "Saudi Arabia does not want to acquire any nuclear bomb," the crown prince told the CBS news program "60 Minutes," "but without a doubt if Iran developed a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible." Salman's remarks came as President Donald Trump is considering pulling the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal and amid tensions over North Korea's nuclear weapons testing. Nuclear proliferation has reentered the heart of the global security discourse.

 The way we use words, consciously and unconsciously, creates realities and reinforces cultural norms.
Reading Between the Lines in International News Coverage
In this age of information, it's easy to forget the enormous power that words carry. I frequently find myself critiquing certain language used in news media: generalizations, analogies, categories. As a graduate of Columbia University's School of Journalism who worked for years in mainstream broadcast newsrooms, including that of CBS Evening News in New York City, I know that most reporters don't intentionally mislead the public. We're under deadline pressure. Necessarily we use shortcuts in terminology. But we must be aware that our words shape societal concepts and public opinion. The way we use words, consciously and unconsciously, creates realities and reinforces cultural norms.

TV can capture the blood, gore and mayhem of a terrorist attack far better than print or audio can, for better or for worse.
TV and Terror: How the Medium Plays Into Terrorist Strategy
The terrorist attack in New York last week hit close to home. My 11-year-old grandson sometimes rides the bike I gave him on that very bike path. You can see why I became glued to the TV. Following the initial wave of feeling -- of relief upon hearing my grandson was safe, of anguish for the victims and their families -- my binge on the TV coverage got me thinking. This is just what they want me to be doing: Dwelling on the damage a single terrorist can do -- becoming terrorized. And TV is the perfect means to that end.

Technology or security personnel are valuable resources for stopping workplace violence. But they function best as supplements to a company's main line of defense: its employees.
A Threat That Knows No Job Description
Violence in the workplace is a fairly rare occurrence in the United States, despite the heavy media coverage such incidents attract. The number of workplace homicides fell from 518 in 2010 to 417 in 2015, the last year for which complete statistics are available. Of these cases, only an average of 12 percent were committed by a current or former co-worker. Relatives or domestic partners were responsible for about 43 percent of workplace homicides involving a female victim, and strangers, too, are frequently to blame for killing employees at work, for example during an armed robbery. Still, episodes of workplace violence are often serious. And in most cases, they are preventable.

The message from the Kremlin is clear: Putin is a strong leader and a man of the people. But the message is beginning to sound stale, and a reckoning may be peeking above the horizon.
For Russia, Putin Power Is Losing Some of Its Shine
Despite a show of strength and a charm offensive, the regime of Vladimir Putin is beginning to show its age. Russia is facing a dangerous protest movement against Putin’s system, and he has responded with heavy-handed crackdowns and winsome public appearances. The message from the Kremlin is clear: Putin is a strong leader and a man of the people. But the message is beginning to sound stale, and a reckoning may be peeking above the horizon.
