    I love your take on everything, Professor. That being said, wouldn’t Blue Steel diplomacy be a mirror image of traditional American foreign policy? (Blue Steel, Le Tigre, Magnum….they are all the same look. How does nobody notice this? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!)

    I feel like we have been a tad bit schizophrenic since the end of the Cold War. Dan Rochon and I, both students of yours, are writing an analysis of post-1990 American foreign policy on exactly this issue and will attempt a policy prescription with the hope that someone in Washington gets some common sense these days.
