Fascinating responses to Robert Pape's essay, "The World Pushes Back" in Sunday's Globe. Andrew Moravcsik comments: "Where many once proclaimed the primacy of 'hard' military power, the post-war world has converted most to the liberal conviction that 'soft' power—public opinion, trade, civilian foreign aid, and international law—matter just as much. When historians look back in a half-century, they may well record this as the enduring lesson of the current crisis." But will American voters buy this idea quickly enough to usher George W. Bush out of office before he embraces the rest of the neo-conservative vision for U.S. foreign policy?
