Intriguing Washington Post Site

Check out the Washington Post's "Global Power Barometer." It's a graphic representation of the world balance of power. The major players are the United States, China, Iran, Israel, North Korea, and the Islamists. There are links to analyses of each player. Very interesting stuff.

One of the links features Robert Kaplan's article "Interventionism's Realistic Future." In an overview of contemporary US foreign policy, he argues that the realism of the 1990s Balkan Wars will balance the idealism of the 2000s Iraq war to continue the development of what history will call the Post-Cold War Era. Again, interesting stuff.
