[OP-ED]: The Art of the Bluff

 08/15/2017 - 15:13
Trump has made clear that the United States would respond to North Korean nuclear threats with a massive military strike, possibly involving nuclear weapons. EFE

How did we get here? Why does it appear that we’re on the brink of a war in Asia, one that could involve nuclear weapons? North Korea has had nuclear-weapons capacity for at least 10 years now. Have its recent advances been so dramatic and significant to force the United States to wage a preventive war? No. The crisis we now find ourselves in has been exaggerated and mishandled by the Trump administration to a degree that is deeply worrying and dangerous.

[OP-ED]: El arte del engaño

 08/15/2017 - 15:10
Trump ha dejado claro que Estados Unidos respondería a las amenazas nucleares de Corea del Norte con un ataque militar masivo, y es muy posible que incluya armas nucleares. EFE

Cómo llegamos aquí? ¿Por qué parece que estamos a punto de una guerra en Asia, que podría involucrar armas nucleares? Corea del Norte ha tenido acceso a armas nucleares por al menos 10 años ahora. ¿Acaso sus recientes avances han sido tan dramáticos y significativos para forzar a Estados Unidos a librar una guerra preventiva? No. La crisis en las cual nos encontramos ha sido exagerada y mal manejada por la administración Trump a un nivel que es profundamente preocupante y peligroso.

[OP-ED]: Trump is but the latest politician to serenade Youngstown

 08/04/2017 - 08:03
It’s no surprise that Trump returned to the familiar theme of demonizing Latino immigrants. The surprise is that he chose to do it in Youngstown of all places -- a city with a minuscule immigrant population, located in a state where the Latino population is just 3.7 percent. EFE

Youngstown again? As an avid spectator of politics, I’ve been hearing about that city in the Mahoning Valley of northeast Ohio for decades. Although it’s home to just 64,000 people, Youngstown gets more than its share of attention from politicians, media, filmmakers, and even a poetic singer/songwriter from Freehold, New Jersey.

[OP-ED]: Trump es sólo el último político en darle una serenata a Youngstown

 08/04/2017 - 08:00
No es de sorprender que Trump volviera a su tema familiar de demonizar a los inmigrantes latinos. La sorpresa es que escogiera hacerlo justamente en Youngstown--una ciudad con una población inmigrante minúscula, ubicada en un estado en que la población latina representa sólo un 3,7 por ciento. EFE

¿Otra vez Youngstown? Como ávido espectador político, he oído hablar de esa ciudad en el Valle Mahoning del nordeste de Ohio durante décadas. Aunque allí residen sólo 64.000 personas, Youngstown recibe bastante atención de los políticos, los medios, los cineastas y hasta de un poético cantautor de Freehold, New Jersey.
