I know that I said it too much but I have so much respect for Kouchner that I even like his faults. It is for this reason that I'm intrigued by the changes that I have seen in recently. Well, there aren't as much changes as I guess his realization that idealism without might is just naiveté. My dream debate would be one between Norman Podhoretz and Bernard Kouchner to see where they would disagree (I am sure that there would be many points of disagreement) and they agree. I wonder if Podhoretz would call Kouchner "an enlightened leftie" and if Kouchner would call him "a well-intentioned manly man." The point that I’m trying to make is that when I see a man as great as Kouchner agrees even slightly with Podhoretz, I have to question the potency of a firm and principled resistance against the attractiveness of oversimplification in international affairs because it brings clarity by drawing a clear line between good and evil thus making it possible to strike.
