Rudy in Foreign Affairs

Foreign Affairs continues its series in which presidential candidates lay out their foreign policy views, and the new issue features Rudy Giuliani. I haven’t gotten a chance to read the entire article yet, and it isn’t online, so I can’t link, but here’s the opening:

We are all members of the 9/11 generation.

The defining challenges of the twentieth century ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Full recognition of the first great challenge of the twenty-first century came with the attacks of September 11, 2001, even though Islamist terrorists had begun their assault on world order decades before. Confronted with our old assumptions about conflict between nation-states fell away. Civilization itself, and the international system, had come under attack by a ruthless and radical Islamist enemy.

What struck me immediately was the influence of Charles Hill, Giuliani’s chief foreign policy adviser, who I spoke with recently. Hill talked to me for a long time about the Islamist war against the international system and noted that even in the Cold War the Soviets participated within the system to a certain degree: i.e. they conducted diplomacy, had embassies, etc.

Giuliani’s article is titled, “Toward a Realistic Peace: Defending Civilization and Defeating Terrorists by Making the International System Work.”

More to come.

UPDATE: The article is now available online here.
