Editorial Cartoons of the Week


Digital discourse and the scourge of anonymity

It is discouraging that a major media outlet would excuse cowardice — that is the right word — under the cloak of anonymity.

Poland’s ‘Fort Trump’ offer sets dangerous precedent

Polish President Andrzej Duda’s offer to call a military base “Fort Trump” if the U.S. agrees to set one up in his country was, of course, a joke — but not entirely.


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.

OPINION

US must modernize the way it fights wars

We need to be prepared to leave expensive platforms that don’t fit the new priorities on the cutting-room floor, no matter their proud history or political constituencies.


OPINION

Manafort’s deal with Mueller: Too little, too late?

What’s clear is that Manafort was out of cards to play.


OPINION

4-year colleges not doing the job for all

In many ways, this behavior in education mimics that of the broader economy, with consumers increasingly seeking alternatives to legacy businesses — take Uber and Airbnb as examples of this phenomenon.

OPINION

Trump voters notice swamp isn’t drained

Make no mistake. These voters don’t blame mysterious forces swirling around Trump, frustrating a well-meaning agenda. They know where the buck stops.


OPINION

Controlling presidents with in-house watchdogs

There are lots of Democrats, including past presidents, whose need for surrounding watchdogs at least equal Trump's, and look, in the meantime, at the good he has done.


OPINION

Did liberal groups’ Collins strategy cross a line?

Americans should not have to consult a lawyer before engaging in political advocacy but, too often, they do, and even then, the answers are not always clear.


OPINION

Obama is great for (GOP) voter turnout

If Obama and the Democrats want to fight about who or what is dividing the country the most, don’t be surprised when voters turn that blue wave into a blue trickle.
