China’s recent tests of a novel nuclear-weapon delivery system may not actually be a new threat to the United States. But they should jump-start a new diplomatic strategy to prevent a dangerous arms race.
The mirage of a Mideast superpower. Russia has repeatedly played the spoiler in the Middle East, especially with its interventions in Syria and Libya, but Moscow’s regional influence is heavily constrained. How should the United States respond to the Kremlin’s adventurism in the region?

The U.S. drawdown in Iraq. As the end-of-year deadline for the latest U.S. withdrawal from Iraq approaches, how will this exit affect Iraq’s political and security environment? Learning the lessons of its past failures, the United States should focus on its relationships with local actors.
