A collection of Sarwar’s opinion columns and book reviews since 2002
NATO’s Surreal World
Has the Atlantic alliance outlived its usefulness? The British journalist and writer Geoffrey Wheatcroft raised that question in an opinion article (“Who needs NATO?,” June 16) that drew a strong reaction from Ivo H. Daalder, the U.S. permanent representative to NATO, who argued that the alliance is more needed than ever (Counterpoint, June 18-19). Sarwar Kashmeri, a senior fellow in the Atlantic Council’s International Security Program and the author of “NATO 2.0: Reboot or Delete?,” joins the debate.

The last time a British prime minister endorsed an American president’s plans for military intervention, it resulted in the US invasion of Iraq – one of the worst foreign policy blunders in recent American history. …That is why last week’s endorsement by David Cameron of a warning by Barack Obama that even the threat of chemical weapons by Syria could trigger a military intervention should be viewed with alarm on both sides of the Atlantic… Read this and much more from Sarwar at The Guardian.

Welcome to PolarisLive’s 2nd year. . It is a pleasure for me to announce our September 2021 guest lineup and some programming changes that you will notice during the next year.
First the changes. They are a direct result of feedback from you, our viewers.
Beginning this month you will occasionally see someone else in the host’s chair. This will let us broaden the perspective of the informed and forthright conversation you have come to expect from PolarisLive. In a way this is like the “by invitation” guest columns in forward-thinking media. Another innovative step in PolarisLive’s leadership in exploring the most consequential relationship of our time–that between the United States and China.
We will also move to a bi-weekly format to give more depth to understanding the topic that is being illuminated. But we do this with an entrepreneurial caveat—whenever current events dictate PolarisLive will add an episode between the bi-weekly lineup that is sent to you at the beginning of each month.
We have changed the umbrella title for PolarisLive from “A China Agenda for President Biden,” to “The United States and China in the World.” The former title was a prelude to my report “The Telegram: A China Agenda for President Biden,” for the Foreign Policy Association (FPA)–which you can download from my website. Now we widen the aperture to take in the increasing complexity of the U.S. – China relationship. Think the American departure from Afghanistan and its impact on U.S.-India-Pakistan-China; increased complexity is an understatement, By the way, PolarisLive will explore the Afghan development through U.S., China, India, and Pakistan perspectives during October. Watch out for the announcements.

An interview with Shan Weijian: Is China’s Communist Party jealous of its Capitalists?
On September 14, Shan Weijian, Chairman and CEO of PAG, one of Asia’s most influential private-equity firms, returns to PolarisLive to discuss the apparent turmoil in China’s giant financial-technology marketplace. What’s behind the last minute cancellation of large Chinese IPO’s on Wall Street. Is President Xi Jinping trying to bring China’s red-hot capitalism to heel? Is the Western media reporting these events accurately? Is Wall Street’s position as the world’s financial center in danger?

Prof. Li Xing, on “The Telegram: The United States and China in the World.”
On September 21 (see we’ve broken the bi-weekly format rule already!) Professor Xing Li, of Aalborg University, Denmark, takes over as PolarisLive’s host to question me about my analysis of the FPA report and especially its more controversial recommendations for large joint China-U.S. projects to ease the hostility between them. EG: the U.S. should use Wall Street money, American workers, and China’s expertise to rebuild American infrastructure.
