Returning to Realism

The Bush administration enters its final year with a show of support for democratically challenged allies ruling Pakistan, Egypt, and Ethiopia. To some, the reality appears far removed from President Bush’s second inaugural vow to “encourage reform in other governments by making clear that success in our relations will require the decent treatment of their own people.” But a number of analysts see this as a natural return to foreign policy realism in which U.S. interests in spreading democracy must be balanced by security concerns.
