Atrios has a “post”:http://atrios.blogspot.com/2007_07_22_archive.html#76616096082440105 up which reminds me of a recent conversation I had with a colleague.
As someone who concentrated in IR theory in grad school, I retain an interest in Big Questions and appreciate efforts to come up with new Big Ideas on foreign policy/international relations.
That said, I wholeheartedly agree with Atrios’ sentiment:
Having spent the last few years reading all of the elaborate and wonderful grand theories and strategies by the “liberal hawks” used to justify their own thinking [about Iraq] and still suggest the dirty hippies were wrong even though they were right, I think I’ve finally come up with the *Dirty Fucking Hippie Unified Theory of Foreign Policy.*
*Don’t be so fucking stupid.*
