Fukuyama on regrets

Francis Fukuyama (The End of History and the Last Man) will present a public lecture at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs titled "Development, Democracy, and American Foreign Policy," on Wednesday, September 28, 2005 at Princeton University.

Whoops! And who just took out the Woodrow Wilson Prize for galaxial statespersoncraft? Why isn't our John Howard giving this speech? He must have been otherwise engaged.

Fukuyama, a professor of international political economy at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, is editorial board chairman of a new magazine, The American Interest.

He has an article in New York Times, Invasion of the Isolationists

We do not know what outcome we will face in Iraq. We do know that four years after 9/11, our whole foreign policy seems destined to rise or fall on the outcome of a war only marginally related to the source of what befell us on that day. There was nothing inevitable about this. There is everything to be regretted about it.

Howard's speech would have been brief - No regrets! Stay the course!
