Stephen M. Walt On FP: Top 10 warning signs of ‘liberal imperialism’


Are you a liberal imperialist? Liberal imperialists are like kinder, gentler neoconservatives: Like neocons, they believe it’s America’s responsibility to right political and humanitarian wrongs around the world, and they’re comfortable with the idea of the United States deciding who will run countries such as Libya, Syria, or Afghanistan.

The Dictator & Sacha Baron Cohen: Telling It As it Is (The Truth about Contemporary Politics, Society and Economics). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


Yesterday we watched The Dictator, and I was not disappointed, the general film is the usual Cohenasque satirical silliness, but it is the essence of the story that was interesting.

Welcome To The BRICS World (To Your Left You Can See The Old Western-UN World & To Your Right The Contested Areas/the future of conflicts. Invest-Wisely and Have A Nice Transformation. Thank You)
