Editorial Cartoons of the Week


It’s not a great time to be a Russian spy in Europe

Russia’s spies in Europe, at least those with the GRU military agency, might be well advised to look for new passports.

Bad idea to declare peace on Korean Peninsula

President Donald Trump looks eager to overrule his top advisers who warn of the risks of declaring peace before North Korea gets serious about eliminating its nuclear arsenal.

More lows in high court confirmations

The confirmation process has followed the crumbling, descending path the rest of American politics has taken into the depths of cynicism, faux outrage and pandering to the parties’ hysterical bases.


OPINION

Tech platforms are in an existential crisis

It turns out more people in more places seeing more things isn’t an unequivocal good. And because it isn’t, platforms can’t pretend they’re neutral overseers any longer — no matter how many haphazard rules they put in place.


OPINION

Accusing a powerful man brings difficult consequences

In at least some quarters, you are ridiculed, dismissed and labeled a liar, a lunatic — or both. Even some friends, family and colleagues are not supportive and instead question why you needed to stick your head out at all.


OPINION

Is Korea denuclearization process for real?

Many hard-line U.S. military and national-security officials remain skeptical.

OPINION

OPINION

Military Update

‘Blue Water Navy’ supporters target VA secretary’s hardline

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, met with Robert Wilkie to try to coax the new VA secretary out of his department’s newly stiffened opposition to a House-passed bill that would extend VA health care and compensation to tens of thousands of former sailors and Marines with Agent Orange-associated ailments. “We haven’t convinced him yet,” Brown said.


OPINION

Afghanistan and Syria: Twin failures of US policy

American policymakers can’t seem to say no to the use of lethal military power — even when it is painfully evident the use of force will likely fail to attain the strategic aims for which it is intended.


OPINION

US must protect Idlib’s 3 million Syrians

Washington should start by vowing to retaliate in the event of any indiscriminate use of violence by Assad against his own people, in a manner of our choosing. That could be done without dramatically escalating U.S. involvement in the war.


OPINION

China doesn’t assert itself in same way USSR did

The Chinese geopolitical dream is not revolution or conquest; it is simply a much weaker America.
