Ideas of war, strategies for warfare and its practice, and organizing principles of war all have rich and varied origins which have shaped the minds of those who conceive the next war. From the French defeat at Sedan in 1870 to the contemporary insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan, most claims from military futurists have been wrong, but remain influential nonetheless.

How can we predict new dangers by looking back at prior conflicts? What cunning plans might a future aggressor have in mind?

Sir Lawrence Freedman is emeritus professor of war studies at King's College London. In June 2009, he was appointed to serve as a member of the official inquiry into Britain and the 2003 Iraq War. Freedman has written extensively on nuclear strategy and the Cold War, as well as commenting regularly on contemporary security issues.

Are Americans too deferential to the armed forces, becoming increasingly willing to "outsource" judgement to the military? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev talks with Dr. Kori Schake of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, co-author with James Mattis of "Warriors and Citizens: American Views of Our Military."

Honduras: Hearing the Call for Democracy

Less than 800 miles from our shores, Hondurans protesting against a fraudulent presidential election have been clubbed, shot at, terrorized, and arbitrarily arrested by the hundreds. Yet this crisis has hardly produced a blip on the radar screen of mainstream U.S. news.

Munich Security Conference: Mixed Messages on American Values, Engagement

The United States sent mixed signals at the 2018 Munich Security Conference. On the one hand, a bipartisan group of officials stressed continuity and legislative oversight when it comes to American foreign policy. But on the other, while not in attendance, President Trump undermined this message with tweets and comments signalling a more transactional approach.
