A "Dose of Realism"
Time for the critics of the realists to step up to the plate. You say you can balance American values and interests. Show me how. It's not an article of faith you get to put forward as a response to us realists who "hate freedom." It just doesn't relate to Russia. How we deal with Pakistan and China are just as affected.
Distinguishing between short-term preferences and long-term trends. Foreign policy needs to be about the latter, not focused on two-year increments and the vissitudes of the electoral calendar.
