Fukuyama responds, and other links

Fukuyama's End of History has been mentioned quite a bit recently, with regards to recent Russian expansionism in Georgia. In a Washington Post op-ed, Fukuyama responds to recent events. Many recent critics of Fukuyama's thesis appear to misinterpret his argument somewhat; he never argued that liberal democracy had triumphed to such a degree that no other form of government would arise in modern times.

Bacevich @ LA Times throws cold water on the notion that Big Change and Big Improvements will occur in America's foreign policy, if [insert Presidential candidate] is elected. Stating the obvious, but it needs to be said.

Japan Times on Bush's legacy in Asia.

Ambassador Charles Ries on improvements in Iraq's electricity infrastructure.
