ABSTRACT
Contends that a liberalism that does not face questions such as how an indefinite postponement of military consequences against Iraq would affect the behavior of regimes from Morocco to Pakistan cannot be moral. Statement that liberalism must be the belief system of a great and dynamic power; How liberalism is a philosophical notion that does not demand that every place in the world follow the U.S. model of democracy; How it does demand the expansion of civil society, minority rights and the rule of law throughout the world; Importance of distinguishing between different dictators; Statement that the liberal left may not be suited to erecting systems of power in the place of toppled ones in the Middle East following a war in Iraq; How the end of the cold war has set a context for more violent struggles in which U.S. power will periodically be the determining element; How homeland security will be central to foreign policy debates.
