    Vajpayee's Nuclear Diplomacy

    • September 14, 2000

    Indian Prime Minister, Atal Behari Vajpayee reaffirmed that "subject to its supreme national interests" India "will continue its voluntary moratorium until the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) comes into effect." The joint statement with President Clinton also reiterated that the Indian government would "continue efforts" to create a national consensus on the CTBT, in order to bring the discussions "to a successful conclusion." India also stated its commitment "not to block entry into force of the Treaty." The statement echoed the Prime Minister's assertion in a speech to a joint session of Congress on September 14, that India did not wish to "unravel" Washington's non-proliferation efforts. Mr. Vajpayee has attempted to shift Washington's focus on dangers emanating from South Asia, from non-proliferation to terrorism.

    Reinventing Japan: Immigration's Role in Shaping Japan's Future

    Much attention has been given to Japan's need to restructure its economy and its bureaucracy, but little critical analysis has addressed the necessary role of immigration policy in Japan's reform process. A series of economic, demographic, and political factors are converging to require that Japan adopt a more open policy toward immigration if it is to ensure its place as a global leader.

    Message to the US Congress: It's the World, Stupid

    Time and again, US officials have stated that they do not want America to become the policeman of the world. Yet the one institution that can help the United States from being placed in that role-the United Nations-has been treated shabbily by the United States. The United States must re-affirm the UN’s mission with concrete action, beginning with the payment of long-overdue UN dues.

    Lost at Sea: The Problems with Sea-based Missile Defense

    • September 02, 2000

    <span class="gray">Sea-based national missile defense systems have become the most discussed and least understood of all proposed missile defense projects. Proponents assert that Aegis destroyers and cruisers can quickly and inexpensively provide a highly-effective defense against both intermediate- and intercontinental-range ballistic missiles. In fact, sea-based national defense systems face major technological uncertainties, cannot be deployed for at least a decade and could prove prohibitively expensive.</span>

    Lessons From the Kursk

    • September 01, 2000

    <span class="gray">The Kursk submarine disaster has grabbed world attention, but there is one question no one is asking: Why are these ships going to sea at all?" Jon Wolfsthal of the Carnegie Non-Proliferation Project explores this question in an editorial published in the Christian Science Monitor on August 28, 2000. He argues that "[w]ith the Cold War over, the rationale for keeping such systems at sea is gone, and the risk that the next accident will involve a ship carrying nuclear weapons is unacceptably high." </span>
