France's Election Proves It—America Is Now an Example of What Not to Do

Mon, 08 May 2017 17:35:23 -0400

Americans have a long and ignoble tradition of telling jokes about the French. Old chestnuts such as “I'm selling a French rifle: Never shot, dropped only once” became popular again in 2003 when the French — wisely as it turns out — refused to join their U.S. allies in the invasion of Iraq. The House of Representatives cafeteria even renamed French fries, “freedom fries.” Turns out the joke’s on us.

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 10:34:25 -0400

Turkey, as well as Egypt and Pakistan, are places where belief in the existence of a deep state is prominent, writes CFR’s Steven A. Cook.

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 16:46:59 -0400
