At a Tipping Point

Daniel Henninger explains the great jeopardy posed to the Bush Doctrine by the reintroduction of foreign policy "realists" -- who believe in nothing more than "working" the worlds problems.

Many of them are the same people who sneered at Ronald Reagan's belief that the USSR could be defeated, and whose "realpolitik" created a Middle East stocked to the gills with angry, hopeless young jihadis.

Many of them are well meaning and honorable. But their approach to the war on terror is going to bear careful watching.

"working the world's problems" means they will have a job in perpetuity.

I like to think of it as "Mired in Diplomacy". (h/t Mark Steyn)

Rather than raiding his dad's cabinet, I'd rather see GWB attract former Reaganites: people used to fighting in a hostile Congressional environment... and who managed to do it successfully.
