Obama's Dilemma

Very thoughtful piece from Stephen Walt on why Obama's failure to make significant change in US foreign policy is not entirely - or even mostly - his fault.  He's boxed in by too many realities of established diplo-think and military-industrial relations, as well as the "hegemon's dilemma," says Walt.

Perhaps - and he makes a good case - but it leaves me even more depressed and concerned about where the US is headed if we're reduced to simply throwing up our hands and accepting that our foreign policy establishment are not much better than lemmings headed off the cliff.
