NYTimes: Obama Offers Strategy Based in Diplomacy

leave a comment »

Article here. Counterpoint to the use of soft power and diplomacy is handled nicely by Charles Krauthammer in this article from July 2008.

However, it is tougher to show overt successes in diplomacy whereas military success is easier to see.

From the current failures in Zimbabwe, Burma, Sudan and “other godforsaken places”, one could add North Korea and Iran to the mix.

Krauthammer argues for successes in Kuwait, Bosnia, Kosovo and Afghanistan, but Afghanistan now leaves much to be determined.
