Like so many of the debates among the foreign policy philosophers, the supposed strategy disagreements in this piece seem to be mainly verbal, and a matter of rhetorical emphasis - sprinkled with some personal and professional rivalry. Kagan has now adopted much of the "liberal order" framework of Democrats like Ikenberry and Slaughter. And why shouldn't he? There are no fundamental ideological and strategic differences between the neoconservatives and the liberals - only pragmatic differences about when to be cautious and when to be assertive.
