The End of Diplomacy
To the Editor:
In “Foreign Policy and the American Mind” [September], Robert A. Nisbet writes: “It is a truth often uttered that war is an extension of foreign policy.”
That is not a truth. It may well have been in the time of von Clausewitz, but no longer. War is, instead, the breakdown of whatever diplomatic policy we may presently have. . . .
