The West should bring Russia inside the tent with an anti-ISIS entente. Whilst our waffling wimps are wringing their hands and wondering what to do next, Putin is putting a bit of stick about. Just what we need
Don't get too excited about the new Russian empire. It's going to be a moth eaten bunch of corrupt dictatorships who are only good at oppressing and impoverishing their people
We are close to a quarter century after the fall of the Berlin Wall, but brave Ukrainians are out in the squares, being beaten by Putin-inspired fascists, to say that they count just as much as you do
Putin understands the utility of flexing muscle in international affairs, as he's shown over Ukraine and Syria. Obama does not, as he has shown over Syria and Iran. Is there a lesson here?
As a former Moscow Bureau chief (for the Times of London) my two cents on the Greenpeace activists is this: Grow up and get out. Don't hold me to it though!
The US economy is almost 8 times bigger than Russia's, the US spends $682 billion on defence to Russia's $91 billion. So what kind of a loser can Barack Obama be to have been eclipsed by Putin?
Just try and put all this together: Russia rules; America lost in space; BBC in love with a totalitarian nun; Harvard University offers idiot prize to mad dictator; Greek Nazis in ascendancy
The West may be in retreat over global security and the "democracy agenda". Here's the bad news. The enemies of global security and the democracy agenda are not in retreat at all
Obama's language of "disappointment" and "impatience" on both gay rights and Snowden will be received in Russia with amused contempt. He will look and sound oddly desperate
America’s “unipolar moment” won’t end on Mr. Obama’s watch, but a lack of influence abroad doesn’t seem to bother this president all that much anyway
Defining Obama's unifying doctrine has, to date, been a difficult task. As he approaches a likely second term, the picture is becoming more clear - Obama is pursuing a 'Flexibility Doctrine'
