Glad to see Biden visiting 2 allies in Asia. Those who think we are "distracted" in Europe are wrong. We are still a great power, with ambitious intentions and enough capabilities to have robust strategies in Asia & Europe at the same time.

Ukraine’s stronger hand and Putin’s missed opportunity

I remember those good old days.

Hoping, but not expecting, that Schroeder will now donate some of the millions he made from Russian companies to a Ukrainian reconstruction fund.

Too many fouls being called. C’mon guys. Get out of the way and let them play.

After Bucha, I hope American CEOs still operating in Russia have a good explanation for that immoral decision to their shareholders. Because I dont.

I think our @FSIStanford  speaker today, Suho from EXO may have more security than Obama did e few weeks ago!

LePen in France and Jansa in Slovenia losing on the same day is a giant victory for the renewal of democratic values in Europe and a huge setback for populist nationalism! Maybe the global tide is turning?

For those of us who study autocracies, including elections in autocracies, there were a lot of familiar messages, symbols, and methods on display this week at the #RNCConvention . THREAD

Serious question. I am not an expert. In international law, why is the Al Qaeda killing of innocents in NY and DC on September 11, 2001 considered an act of terrorism, but Putin's slaughter of innocents in Bucha, Kramatorsk, Chernihiv, or Mariupol is not terrorism?
