Liberals and Reality

A great article from — of all places — the Guardian

In January, Bush will be history, leaving liberals all alone in a frightening world. Little else will change. Radical Islam will still authorise murder without limit, Iran will still want the bomb and the autocracies of China and Russia will still be growing in wealth and confidence.

Even if we have a President Obama, the continuities in American foreign policy will be more striking than the contrasts.
