War in Context

... with attention to the unseen
  1. If Trump pulls out of the Paris accord he will be serving Putin and turning the U.S. into a rogue nation
    Joe Romm writes: President Donald Trump has privately told “confidants” he intends to leave the Paris accord on climate change, “according to three sources with direct knowledge,” Axios reported Saturday.

  2. McMaster should step down and stop lending credibility to Trump’s fake presidency
    Tom Ricks writes: I worry that having people like [national security adviser, H.R.] McMaster around Trump simply enables Trump. Mature national security specialists seasoned in the ways of Washington simply lend an air of occasional competence to an otherwise shambolic White House. By appearing before the cameras, looking serious and speaking rationally, they add a […]

  7. The thoughts of a spiderweb
    Joshua Sokol writes: Millions of years ago, a few spiders abandoned the kind of round webs that the word “spiderweb” calls to mind and started to focus on a new strategy. Before, they would wait for prey to become ensnared in their webs and then walk out to retrieve it. Then they began building horizontal […]
