America's Coming Disunion?
Is the United States on the brink of a new civil war? October's awful events -- pipe bombs sent to leading Democratic politicians and supporters, the mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh -- have only amplified fears that such a conflict could break out within the next few years. "We are now nearing a point comparable to 1860," Stanford University's Victor Davis Hanson recently wrote in the National Review. The historian Niall Ferguson suggested in The Sunday Times of London that if someone were to design a "Civil War Clock" comparable to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists' "Doomsday Clock," the designer would probably now be announcing that it is "two minutes to Fort Sumter." Ferguson himself is more upbeat, thinking that "the time on the civil war Doomsday Clock looks more like 11.08 than 11.58." It seems to me, though, that all these speculations are deeply misleading -- so

The 'Fairway Theory of History' Appears to Hit the Mark
Beyond its value as entertainment and exercise, golf can provide geopolitical insight, at least according to a theory advanced by Richard Haass, the long-serving president of the venerable Council on Foreign Relations. In an article titled "What Golf Teaches Us About Geopolitics" and published in Newsweek magazine in September 2009, Haass argued that the links game offered a useful lens through which to think about the world. His thesis was that a country's relationship with the game to a large degree matched the degree of its economic and political openness. Growth in the former, he asserted, usually occurred alongside growth in the latter; and the reverse was also true. As for what lay behind this relationship, Haass wrote: "It is not just that the game tends to flourish in countries that welcome tourists, who can bring new ideas along with their bags of clubs. Large numbers of golf courses reflect

Waning public interest in foreign news has driven a crisis in the media industry.
Covering Conflict Zones for the Modern Media
My parents' stories about being foreign correspondents during the 1980s make me long for a very different time in journalism. Back then, most major national news outlets, including the Chicago Tribune and The Boston Globe, had well-staffed bureaus in the Middle East. And because the internet, hailed in its infancy as the savior of the news media, had not yet devastated a business model built around lucrative print advertising, there was enough money to ensure that foreign correspondents were paid a living wage. Without the echo chamber and feedback loop of social media, news companies didn't have to factor in the number of clicks a well-written, long-form piece on some depressing but important topic might get -- they could just publish the piece with the understanding that their relatively stable readership would survive.

Unlocking the Secrets of MOMINT
The old cliche goes that there's no substitute for a mother's love. But for Chinese intelligence officers, her access to classified information comes close. On March 29, the U.S. Department of Justice announced the arrest of Candace Claiborne, an office management specialist (or administrative assistant) with the State Department, for failing to disclose thousands of dollars in gifts and payments from Chinese officials.Some of the gifts that Claiborne accepted, which included thousands of dollars in cash and items such as an iPhone and MacBook computer, were for her personal use. Many of them, however, went to a person identified in the complaint against her as "Co-conspirator A." The media initially ran with stories that the figure was a man deployed by Chinese intelligence to steal Claiborne's heart -- and any privileged information she had access to -- in a so-called "honey-trap" operation. After all, female administrators are frequent targets of

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's rationalizers claim he is a foreign policy realist, but realism is not simply a matter of being unsentimental.
A Thoughtful Response to Trump?
In 1848, British Foreign Secretary Lord Palmerston famously said, "We have no eternal allies and we have no perpetual friends … [only] our interests are eternal and perpetual." Similarly, Donald Trump's supporters argue that the billionaire businessman is simply a foreign policy realist taking a cold, hard look at the geopolitical facts -- much as Stratfor tries to do -- and consistently putting American interests first. Realism, though, is not simply a matter of being unsentimental. It is about knowing when an appeal to tradition, values and loyalty will advance a nation's interests and when it will not.

How Americans Define Their Place in the World
There is a saying, regularly but probably wrongly attributed to Henry Kissinger, that academic politics are so vicious because the stakes are so small. Political scientist Dwight Waldo summed things up much better when he observed in 1970 that academics "can no longer use our little joke that campus politics are so nasty because the stakes are so small. They are now so nasty because the stakes are so large." Waldo was right. The arguments that have taken place before and are happening again over how to teach history are not matters of counting angels on pinheads; universities are not, and have never been, ivory towers. What is at stake here is how Americans define their place in the world.
