Not the Way to Intervene In the Washington Post, Nixon Center Executive Director Paul J. Saunders argues that the US should use force force deliberately, selectively, sparingly and decisively.

Striking a new realism In the International Herald Tribune, Nixon Center President Dimitri K. Simes writes that despite the Democratic takeover of Congress and the start of the presidential campaign, there appears to be little interest in a serious public dialogue about the direction of U.S. foreign policy.

Play Ball With Russia In the Los Angeles Times, Nixon Center President Dimitri K. Simes writes that The Kremlin softened its position on Iran; now it rightfully expects the U.S. to listen up on Kosovo.

Moderate Muslim Brotherhood Read the article on the Muslim Brotherhood published by Nixon Center staff members Robert S. Leiken and Steven Brooke in the latest issue of Foreign Affairs magazine.

No more Middle East crusades In the Los Angeles Times, Nixon Center President Dimitri K.
