Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
activities that were uncomfortably reminiscent of WW2.

I beg to differ. There is just NO comparison possible here.

The public perception in this part of the world is that there is. I still can't work out anything resembling a truth through the haze of competing propaganda, except that it was all about a hundred times more complicated than was presented through the media here.

The competing propoganda is a big problem for me. The heavyweights of US foreign policy write in Foreign Affairs magazine, which makes it useless to me. It's extremely rare to find a useful article in FA, though Joseph Muller's essay on ethnicity is one example that comes to mind. Foreign Policy magazine, to which I subscribe, presents me with the same problem. "America's Hard Sell" had one or two insights I find useful and which resonate.

The foreign policy community is verbose, which is both a blessing a a curse, because though there are quite a few gems out there, finding them in all the slag is a huge chore.
