Bidding a Fond Farewell ...
As I have settled in to my teaching position at the U.S. Naval War College, however, I have begun to blog far less and in more irregular increments. Now that The National Interest has relaunched its website, with new features and content, and a revamped magazine blog--meaning that TWR is no longer serving as the core blog of the magazine--I do not plan to maintain this site.
I will continue my weekly column at World Politics Review [WPR will return from its summer hiatus the week of August 30] and continue to be a guest blogger at other sites, notably at Global Security.
I thank readers of TWR for their comments and participation in this blog!

This is the type of decision that needs to be insulated from electoral calculation.
