    The Missed Opportunity of the June NATO Summit

    To the extent NATO’s new Strategic Concept mentions commitments at all, they are couched in elastic language devoid of benchmarks specifying what members will do, how much they will spend to do it, and when.

    How Georgia Stumbled on the Road to Europe

    Unlike Ukraine and Moldova who have been given candidate status, Georgia has been offered a much weaker offer of EU membership perspective. Despite the best efforts of the country’s protestors, the Georgian dream government is unlikely to back down and meet these demands any time soon.

    Indian Military Dependence on Russia

    Moscow has created a trust-based relation with India in the military domain. Since the Cold War, it has been supplying India with high tech material it denies to other countries. Both the S-400 and the Su-35 fighter jet are cases in point. This is not a new development.
