If nothing changes, the prospect of millions of deaths is far from unrealistic.
Political fake newsis harder and risker to police than fake news about the coronavirus.
Redundancy, not reshoring, is the key to supply chain security.
Although gteaux and Gauloises were deemed products of the first necessity, other products-or rather, the brick and mortar stores selling them-were not. Among the absentees from the official list were the nation‘s librairies, or bookstores.
The world following the coronavirus pandemic is unlikely to be radically different from the one that preceded it.
The longer Trump stays in office, the harder it will be to safeguard the apolitical traditions of service to the nation, dedication to the rule of law, and loyalty to the Constitution, which are the hallmarks of the American armed forces.
The United States first sent its military to Afghanistan to end the terrorist sanctuary that developed there under the Taliban and culminated in cataclysm. Before it withdraws, Washington must make sure appropriately robust and reliable arrangements are in place to prevent this danger from reemerging.
Taiwan‘s initial success against the novel coronavirusis a model for the rest of the world.
What Washington failed to learn from the National Security Council‘s Ebola report.
The real lessons of the coronavirus pandemic will be political.

Trump‘s ‘America First‘approach to coronavirus overlooks the fact that failing to defeat the pandemic abroad undermines our ability to get it under control-and restore our way of life-at home.
The concepts emerging from the Bush administration‘s war on terrorism form a neoimperial vision in which the United States arrogates to itself the global role of setting standards, determining threats, and using force. These radical ideas could transform today‘s world order in a way that the end of the Cold War did not. The administration‘s approach is fraught with peril and likely to fail. If history is any guide, it will trigg
After the Cold War, the demands on American leadership are no less stern than they were in Dean Acheson‘s day. Present again at the creation, U.S. diplomacy must pass a series of tests -- of vision, pragmatism, spine, and principle -- to build a foundation for a new world. This will mean encouraging democracy, stopping the spread of weapons of mass destruction, working to shore up the international financial system, engaging Beijing, and st

The international order faces illiberal assaults from Russia, China, and, increasingly, populist revolutions among its leading members. Doubling down on U.S. dominance would be the wrong response. It would be better to build a less hegemonic, more diverse system.
The unipolar moment has passed. Even old allies stubbornly resist American demands, while many other nations view U.S. policy and ideals as openly hostile to their own. Washington is blind to the fact that it no longer enjoys the dominance it had at the end of the Cold War. It must relearn the game of international politics as a major power, not a superpower, and make compromises. U.S. policymaking should reflect rational calculations of power ra

It will take wartime spirit-and spending-to keep the global economy afloat.
From the bubonic plague at the end of the nineteenth century to HIV/AIDS in the 1990s to SARS in 20023, China‘s ability to contain diseases has been crucial to internal and external perceptions of the state.
