An excellent find.A little off topic, but I think I will post a term paper I wrote on Afghanistan, and the strategic problems the US is facing there. Maybe this weekend.
Hi John! Thanks for the link!International-relations realism has its problems, IMHO. But theorists like Dr Walt really are doing an admirable job of articulating a realism which is heading in an appropriate direction and reclaiming the language of the national interest for a serious anti-war position.Great stuff! I look forward to your next post.Best,M
Hello CA, Sounds very interesting, I am looking forward to reading it!
Hello Matthew, I agree with you regarding foreign policy realism. Realism can often lead to a rather nasty form of amoralism. I believe foreign policy, like other aspects of politics, must include a moral component. However, I also agree with you regarding Dr. Walt. I think realism may often be preferable to an aggressive, expansionist idealism as showcased by the neocons and others.Thanks for the comments!
