US News / Special: Empire Builders / Neocon quiz | Christian Science Monitor

I stole this quiz from Acidman.

Here are my results:



Are guided more by practical considerations than ideological vision
Believe US power is crucial to successful diplomacy - and vice versa
Don't want US policy options unduly limited by world opinion or ethical considerations
Believe strong alliances are important to US interests
Weigh the political costs of foreign action
Believe foreign intervention must be dictated by compelling national interest

Historical realist: President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Modern realist: Secretary of State Colin Powell

I agree with most of this. And yes, I am a great admirer of Colin Powell.
