"American Foreign Policy After Iraq"

Magazine or Newspaper Article, The Chronicle of Higher Education

By Joseph S. Nye, Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor

"What comes after Iraq? If President Bush's current surge of troops fails to produce "victory," what lessons will the United States draw for its future foreign policy? Will it turn inward as it did after the defeat in Vietnam three decades ago? Will it turn away from a values-oriented foreign policy of promoting democracy to a narrow realist view of its interests? Even while discussion in Washington is fixated on current events in Iraq, four books have begun to draw lessons for the next stage. All four agree on condemning the Iraq War, but their recommendations then diverge."

"Bargaining with Russia to Contain Iran"

Op-Ed, The Boston Globe

By Joseph S. Nye, Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor

"The United States clearly intends for any missile defense in Eastern Europe to protect against Iran, as well as any other hostile states. But we have the opportunity right now to prevent Iran from getting the nuclear bomb we're trying to defend ourselves against. By striking a deal with Russia to support sanctions against Iran, we would get a chance to make our strongest bid yet to prevent Iran from becoming the newest nuclear state. Everything else should be second to that goal."

"Instability Has Damaged Turkey's International Standing"

Op-Ed, Daily Star

By Joseph S. Nye, Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor

"...[T]he invasion of Iraq also hurt Turkey, both economically and by strengthening the base for the Kurdish terrorist PKK organization operating from northern Iraq. The result has been a dramatic increase in anti-Americanism in Turkish politics. If the neocons had instead focused their attentions on strengthening the soft power of Turkey, they could have done far more to advance the cause of democracy in the Middle East."
