MCU Journal vol. Bythe UN spent a greater share of its budget on self-promotion and propaganda through its Department of Public Information 5. During the s and into the early 21st century, it struggled on several fronts, beset with economic difficulties, political corruption, and independence movements see Chechnya. The US was likely to be less concerned with the fate of Europe and more concerned with its other interests in the Middle East and Asia.

If Islamist totalitarianism is the main enemy, as the neocons rightly claim, then it follows logically that Russian authoritarianism, however unpalatable to democratic sensibilities, is something we can live with. NATO needs partners that who will contribute to addressing the unprecedented security challenges we are facing today, from terrorist attacks to 'failed states' to the spread of weapons of mass destruction. American Putin-bashers would do well to realize that the Putin regime clearly favors the former version which may not be the case for his successor. The latter, in particular, is less than a mile wide in some areas, and 10 percent of the 50, ships that pass through it each year are tankers carrying Russian and Caspian oil. There will inevitably be differences in the nature of the cooperation that they create with the wider world. It would look a lot like the history that the Islamic State is writing now.

Not surprisingly, some observers mused whether this 'introverted' approach would condemn the event to obscurity: was it going to be a major Summit after all, or would it turn out to be just an unimpressive hilltop? But in the last few years, China and Russia have drawn themselves up condently. Looking back at Paul Kennedys work, the problem of predicting an uncertain future becomes immediately obvious. Hegemons may be attracted to the concept of regimes for the very reason that it offers them the opportunity to imprint their norms and values upon other states within the international system. NATO leaders have thus far demonstrated neither the vision nor the political will to reinvent the Alliance. Priego, Alberto
