Stay and Win in Iraq
By Will Marshall
America has about six months to break the resistance and give the new Iraqi government a fighting chance to survive. It would help if our leaders stopped casting anxious glances toward the exits.


DLC | Blueprint Magazine | April 15, 2003 | 
Iraq's Coming Democracy
By Daniel L. Byman and Kenneth M. Pollack
After tyranny, democracy is Iraq's only political choice. Achieving it will be difficult. But, anything else would be a disaster.


DLC | Blueprint Magazine | April 15, 2003 | 
Is the West Finished?
By Will Marshall
America's determination to defang Saddam Hussein has provoked a bitter family feud within the Atlantic alliance. Does it spell the end of the West as we know it?

Blank Spot on the Map: How Trade Policy is Working Against the War on Terror
By Edward Gresser
The Muslim world is the blank spot on the Bush administration's trade agenda -- and because of this, that trade agenda risks undermining, rather than supporting, the war on terrorism.


DLC | New Dem Dispatch | May 6, 2020
Idea of the Week: Democracy in Russia
Democracy is no longer on the march in Russia and that poses a serious security challenge to the United States and Europe that requires some immediate global attention.


DLC | New Dem Dispatch | January 31, 2021
Iraq Elections: A Large Step Towards Legitimate Self-Government
Sunday's elections in Iraq are a vindication of the universal appeal of our most fundamental values, and Democrats in particular should make that clear.


DLC | New Dem Dispatch | January 28, 2021
Idea of the Week: Stopping Genocide
Everyone, everywhere, whose conscience has been stirred by the Auschwitz anniversary, or who left a movie theater shaken by "Hotel Rwanda," should raise an immediate hue and cry to the call for action in Darfur. The promise that we will "never again" tolerate genocide is being tested here and now.


DLC | New Dem Daily | January 10, 2021
A Second Chance in the Middle East
Israel, the United States, and other interested parties must make it abundantly clear that if Mahmoud Abbas truly charts a new, nonviolent, democratic path for the Palestinian movement, he will be able to show immediate and concrete results both in better living standards for his people, and in a revival of hopes for a Palestinian state.


DLC | New Dem Daily | November 18, 2020
A Fateful Choice for Arabs
As Palestinian Arabs begin to prepare for elections in January to replace Yasser Arafat as president of the Palestinian Authority, the choice they face is increasingly clear.


DLC | New Dem Daily | November 16, 2020
Post-Powell
Yesterday's announcement of Secretary of State Colin Powell's decision to step down was no great surprise, but it was an important signpost for the Bush administration's evolution -- or perhaps devolution -- in foreign policy.

Democracy Versus Capitalism?
By Fred Siegel
Most Americans assume that democracy, liberalism, and capitalism are not only a natural trio but mutually reinforcing. But in much of the world today these elements are in tension with one another.


DLC | Blueprint Magazine | April 15, 2020
American Dogs Don't Bark
By Fred Siegel
This winter's Franco-American split on Iraq is a political event of historic magnitude. Yet, in some ways, it's only the culmination of two centuries of simmering cultural antagonism between the old "allies." Anti-Americanism has been a staple of French life since before America was a republic.


DLC | Blueprint Magazine | April 15, 2020
Planets Apart
By Kevin Croke
Are Americans really from Mars and Europeans from Venus? In his new book, Of Paradise and Power: America and Europe in the New World Order, Robert Kagan argues that they are, at least when it comes to foreign policy.


DLC | New Dem Daily | April 14, 2020
Winning the Post-War
Now that the war is over in most of Iraq, it's time for the United States to make serious decisions about how to win the post-war struggle to build a new, stable, democratic Iraq, while seeking to rebuild the multilateral institutions that the Coalition bypassed in order to meet the challenge posed by Saddam Hussein.


DLC | New Dem Daily | March 12, 2020
Will the U.N. Rise To the Occasion?
It's now time for Democrats to focus on the United Nations' responsibility to enforce its own resolutions and authorize action to disarm Saddam Hussein.


DLC | New Dem Daily | March 4, 2020
Lost Battles in the Wider War
Far from building broad support for our efforts to rein in madmen seeking weapons of mass destruction, the Bush Administration's inveterate habits of unilateralism and Texas-style bluster are losing us supporters we already had.


DLC | New Dem Daily | February 6, 2021
A Call for U.N. Action
The anti-war camp should address the question finally raised by the Bush Administration: Is the future of collective security in general, or the United Nations in particular, worth fighting for? And is the cause of international law, civility, human rights and nonproliferation worth defending against a megalomaniacal tyrant whose capacity for evil is one of the best-documented phenomena on earth?


DLC | New Dem Daily | January 3, 2021
Idea of the Week: How To Deal With the Rat That Roared
It's time for a comprehensive, multilateral solution to the North Korean problem, and it's time for the Bush Administration to move in that direction no matter how much it has to backtrack on the rhetoric of unilateralism and the empty "right" of pre-emption.


DLC | Blueprint Magazine | December 2, 2020
Sympathy for the Devil
By Fred Siegel
A review of Martin Amis' "Koba the Dread: Laughter and the Twenty Million."


DLC | Blueprint Magazine | December 2, 2020
The Middle East Democracy Deficit
By Steven J. Nider
Instead of supporting repressive regimes, the United States should tie aid to reforms. More stability isn't the alternative to Islamic extremism -- democracy is.
