The Peculiar Stability of Instability

...impressive racism of the piece....the continuity of concerns. Arab/Israeli conflict? Check! Rising China causing problems with U.S. allies? Check! Worries about European burden sharing (and their worrying about U.S. policy)? Double check! Other governments using U.S. policies to justify their own actions (anti-terrorism now, anti-Communism then)? Triple check! And, behind it all, the idea of the United States as a shriveled, retreating power--an idea that definitely has currency today

Robert Lieber's new book about declinism is useful for its able recapping of previous generations' declinism debates even if you're skeptical about the book's central hypothesis 

Although the Cold War is almost uncritically presented in most intro IR courses as a period of bipolarity, the similarity of today's declinism debates (during a period usually described as unipolar) to those that took place more than forty years ago should raise questions about whether we've misclassified one, or both, of those periods.

'No Safe Passage Out Of UK For Assange'

Britain says it is determined to extradite the WikiLeaks founder to Sweden despite Ecuador granting him asylum amid protests.

The Foreign Secretary told a news conference: "We will not allow Mr Assange safe passage out of the UK, nor is there any legal basis for us to do so.
"The UK does not accept the principle of diplomatic asylum."

( Pretty heavy for an extraordinary request involving international relations between four nations and the inviolability of embassies - no formal charges having been laid . Sounds like a precedent recommending the withdrawing of embassies from the UK en mass - property rights regarding security having been withdrawn wholesale. )
