Hyperbole is not a Strategy

Hyperbole is not a Strategy December 18, 2015 While all the candidates on the Republican debate stage in Las Vegas criticized Democrats on national security issues, very few of them presented anything resembling a clear strategy for tackling the threats facing the United States. Instead, they substituted tough talk, threats,… Read More ›

Imagine, a Good News Story on Pakistan

Imagine, a Good News Story on Pakistan By Tara Sonenshine, Member of the NSN Advisory Board July 27, 2015 | The Hill We are so used to stories about Pakistan that include terrorism, violence, bombs and bullets. Similarly, we are used to stories about failed foreign aid, fraud, waste, abuse, charities that don’t do what they promise and a growing sense that we have so many problems at home, so why bother doing anything abroad? Into that cynical vortex comes a Washington Post story with a very different and welcome message about a part of Pakistan that is using outside money and inside determination to prove the critics wrong and remind us why we should care and why we should support cross-cultural engagement. In a remote part of Pakistan, near the troubled tribal belt, and not far from the disputed territory of Kashmir, there are growing signs that extremism can be rooted out and that overseas engagement combined with local efforts can pay off, not only for the community itself, but for the wider world. Hunza Valley and its capital, Karimabad, were once hotbeds of extremism, violence, poverty, illiteracy and the kind of chaos that spreads and disrupts lives everywhere. Today,… Read More ›

How India Could Benefit From the Iran Nuclear Deal

How India Could Benefit From the Iran Nuclear Deal By Brian Katulis, Chairman of the NSN Board of Directors July 24, 2015 | WSJ The Obama administration took an important step to advance America’s security in completing the comprehensive joint plan of action, or CJPoA. The deal negotiated in Vienna represents the best of the available options for dealing with Iran’s nuclear program. It avoids both the hazards and uncertainties of military action, and provides a strong international framework for stopping Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. If the Iran nuclear deal moves forward without major hitches, India could be one of the few countries to have deepening relations with countries strongly at odds with one another. The evolving geopolitics of the broader Middle East (known to Indians as “West Asia”) could boost India’s regional standing. While Washington gears up for weeks of debate over the accord, Indians are hoping the agreement can advance their country’s energy and trade interests and lead to greater regional integration. India has working relationships with Iran, Israel, and key Gulf Cooperation Council countries–and is looking to strengthen all of those ties. Government officials, foreign policy analysts, and journalists in New Delhi told me in… Read More ›

A Framework for Stopping Iran from Getting Nuclear Weapons

A framework for stopping Iran from getting nuclear weapons By Brian Katulis, Chairman of the NSN Board of Directors July 19, 2015 | Providence Journal The Obama administration took an important step to advance America’s security in completing the comprehensive joint plan of action, or CJPoA. The deal negotiated in Vienna represents the best of the available options for dealing with Iran’s nuclear program. It avoids both the hazards and uncertainties of military action, and provides a strong international framework for stopping Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. One interesting aspect of the debate sparked last week by the Iran deal is that most critics are unclear about what they would propose as an alternative to the current deal – it is not clear that additional sanctions would have motivated Iran to make more concessions, and the prospect of another war in the Middle East is not appealing to many. A key strength of this agreement is that it brings together the world’s leading powers and outlines commitments from Iran. Brian Katulis is a Senior Fellow at American Progress, where his work focuses on U.S. national security policy in the Middle East and South Asia. To continue reading, click here.… Read More ›
