This is equivalent to "God bless America", if this article in Prospect is to be believed. The article is proposing a valid strategy change to the democrats and has some good arguments in support. It would be interesting, though, to have the author expand some more on how he sees Switzerland and France to be the most republican continental countries in Europe. FYI: I used to subscribe to Prospect before I returned to the more profane Economist.
More to the point re Force is this gap analysis of the Bush administrations foreign policy after 9/11 in Foreign Affairs. Very insightful analysis with a lot of good advice - we'll see whether it will be acted upon. I doubt it, somehow.
