Crusty apothegms
Out for a few pints of foreign policy with a mate last night when he made the pithy remark that a neoconservative is just a liberal internationalist who happens to be American. Some time later it occured to me that if this was true, then the real division in Anglo-American politcs is betwen a domestic party and an international party. By that time we were well into double geopolitics on the rocks and I couldn't articulate the idea. I'm still having trouble.
