New Focal Points Blog

Foreign Policy In Focus (FPIF) has just launched a new blog called Focal Points. Edited by long-time foreign policy blogger Russ Wellen, Focal Points is a rapid-response progressive take on what's happening in the world today.

This week, Russ does an extensive round-up of perspectives on the Obama administration's Nuclear Posture Review, and argues that nuclear modernization undercuts the administration's commitment to disarmament. He also throws out three challenges to readers to weigh in with their opinions: on the Middle East peace process, the future of Jerusalem, and the definition of suicide bombers.

You can also read Walden Bello on the situation in Thailand, M. Junaid Levesque-Alam on the Times Square bomber, John Goekler on deterrence, and me on the Okinawa base issue and the sinking of the Cheonan.

Our other bloggers include Antonia Juhasz, Christine Ahn, Ethelbert Miller, and Stephen Zunes. Log on and let's hear your opinion as well.
