Those who remember Washington's cold war culture in the 1980s will recall the shocked reactions to Reagan's intervention.

Strategic thinkers were naturally rattled to find this outsider fooling around with their work.

The generation which lived through the Second World War is disappearing. Post-war generations see Europe's great achievements - liberty, peace and prosperity - as a given.

Tags: Great, Peace  ✍ Author: Jan Peter Balkenende

The surrealists, and the modern movement in painting as a whole, seemed to offer a key to the strange postwar world with its threat of nuclear war. The dislocations and ambiguities, in cubism and abstract art as well as the surrealists, reminded me of my childhood in Shanghai.

It was a mistake. On the information we had, we shouldn't have prosecuted the war. We shouldn't have changed our argument from international law to regime change in a non-transparent way. It was an error for which we as a country paid a heavy price, and for which many people paid with their lives.

Tags: Change, Law  ✍ Author: Ed Balls
