Neocon quiz (dedicado ao Carlos Novais)

No sítio do CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR está disponível um jogo interessante para tirarmos as teimas sobre uma dúvida que nos pode assaltar: em política externa norte-americana seremos neoconservadores? A vantagem é que, se não formos, nos arrumam noutro perfil (aqui). Eu gostei do meu, que deu assim:

"Based on your answers, you are most likely a REALIST. Read below to learn more about each foreign policy perspective.

• Are guided more by practical considerations than ideological vision
• Believe US power is crucial to successful diplomacy - and vice versa
• Don't want US policy options unduly limited by world opinion or ethical considerations
• Believe strong alliances are important to US interests
• Weigh the political costs of foreign action
• Believe foreign intervention must be dictated by compelling national interest
Historical realist: President Dwight D. Eisenhower
Modern realist: Secretary of State Colin Powell."
