Diplomacy first

A columnist for the Salt Lake Tribune quotes Gary Bertsch, international affairs professor, in a story decrying the alleged machismo of the Bush administration leading to wartime mistakes.

“The Bush administration has relied on hard power (militarism) rather than diplomacy (soft power) and it has been very costly. It is reshaping the view that the rest of the world has of the United States as a responsible power,” Bertsch said.
