by Louis René Beres (October 2015) In world politics, preserving order has an understandably sacramental function. The reason is plain. Without minimum public order, planetary relations would descend rapidly and perhaps irremediably into a “profane” disharmony. It has happened before, since ...Read More...

It has been a long and sad evolution. Once upon a time, especially in the earliest days of our republic, presidents were at least presumptively learned. Arguably, Thomas Jefferson, who had based his Declaration of Independence on a genuinely intimate familiarity with Locke, Vattel, Hobbes, Grotius, ...Read More...

There exist major jurisprudential flaws in the new Iran nuclear agreement, still-hidden legal shortcomings that President Obama and Secretary John Kerry have yet to acknowledge. The associated risks have most to do with permitting Iran to enrich uranium after 15 years. Indeed, this stunningly ironic ...Read More...

In core matters of war and peace, timing is everything. For Israel, now cheerlessly confirmed in its long-held view that U.S.-led diplomacy with Iran was misconceived, future strategic options should be determined with great care. In essence, this means that the beleaguered mini-state’s nuclear policies, ...Read More...

The new Iran agreement has already been widely criticized on military or strategic grounds. For the most part, these critiques have been right on the mark. After all, there is little doubt that the proposed pact — allegedly designed to prevent Iranian nuclearization — would effectively render Iranian ...Read More...

by Louis René Beres with Leon (Bud) Edney To be sure, following careful assessments of the new Iran agreement, Israel's prime minister will need to make an 11th-hour decision on preemption. In principle, at least, considering any such defensive first strike against Iranian nuclear assets and infrastructures ...Read More...

"The safety of the People Shall be the highest law." (Cicero, De Legibus[1])   There is little point to any further discussions about preventing a nuclear Iran by diplomacy. Such a narrowly jurisprudential approach was destined to fail from the start. All that has really happened, in the inherently ...Read More...

Now, facing an effectively unobstructed nuclear threat from Iran, Israel will need to choose prudently from among available strategic options. The most starkly polar of these choices would be (1) a "last minute" preemption using only conventional forces, or (2) a protracted and presumptively stable ...Read More...

To best serve Israel, the country’s strategic studies community should favor more conceptual or “molecular” assessments of expected security perils. Going forward therefore, it will not suffice for this community to operate in ways that are roughly comparable to the purely reportorial activities of ...Read More...

The mere pretense of Iranian compliance with newly codified nuclear curtailment norms will place corollary pressures upon Israel to join the NPT, or a regional nuclear weapons free zone. Somehow, although it has yet to be mentioned, there is a plainly foreseeable connection between the just-completed ...Read More...

The current controversy concerning Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's upcoming speech to the US Congress is immaterial to anything of real importance. What should really matter most to both countries, is whether or not Israeli security can ever coexist meaningfully with a new Arab state of "Palestine." ...Read More...

Defensive warfare does not consist of waiting idly for things to happen. We must wait only if it brings us visible and decisive advantages. That calm before the storm, when the aggressor is gathering new forces for a great blow, is most dangerous for the defender.” –Carl von Clausewitz, Principles of ...Read More...
