In Brandon J. Weichert’s recent Asia Times column, he argues that COVID-19 highlighted the strengths and weaknesses of the authoritarians and democrats…innovation will be key to beating the authoritarians and America’s successful creation of vaccines shows how to do innovation right.
As Eurasia Rises, America Declines
Brandon J. Weichert’s latest Asia Times op-ed: A Eurasian superstate would have the resources, manpower, technological capabilities, and political will to make war upon the American superstate. It is unlikely that the United States could either survive or thrive in such a world.

Obama Broke NATO
In 2013, the Turks, a NATO partner, wanted access to U.S. Patriot missile defenses to protect against any spillover from the Syrian Civil War. The Obama Administration refused.

Netanyahu’s Missed Opportunity
“Turkey’s arrival on-scene will likely cause tensions between themselves, Iran, and Russia to escalate, meaning that Russia will be unable to consolidate its newfound position in the region on its own. Russia will need Israel. Therefore, when the opportunity next arises — and this will likely be the last chance before the shooting starts in the region — for Israel to act as the broker between the United States and Russia, it shouldn’t shirk from this strategic opportunity.”
