I put an interesting article on American foreign policy’s unilateralism, specially on China. The basic hypothesis is American foreign policy did not with the Bush Administration, but it has its roots even with the Clinton Administration. The Clinton Doctrine point out that in order to maintain the stability in core regions of US interest (chiefly Europe and Japan) the instability in periphery regions should be combated. And the questions is: should USA act preemptively with China before it gets too powerful and threatens USA interest?
Krauthammer –I enjoy reading this neo-con so much!- put it clear: “The essence of foreign policy is deciding witch son of a bitch to support and which to oppose?”
