Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Heh, this is about the reaction I predicted, and I really am not certain which of us is correct. I don't know either. I'm certainly not claiming to know the most effective approach to take. I'm...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Yes, I was being immoderate, because I read your post as dismissing that we could have come to the views we did without "the Lobby." I did make sure to note that you HAD acknowledged the influence...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

See, I see this as evidence more for my argument. I think Friedman was intentionally using the term (a term that is different than "Jewish Lobby," even, which was defined -- however poorly -- by W&M...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

I think this ignores changes, both because it's one part of the issue, because the reason for the US feeling bound in the region have changed, and because -- as you note -- Israeli politics have...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

I think our disagreements are fleshed out enough that I'm mostly willing to leave it, but just to highlight:



This is where I most disagree. I don't see a roughly consistent US policy marked...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Of course it's not. Again, I think Mead's point was a lot more limited than people are making it.



I wish it were. It seems not to be, and not to be in part because W&M do not have a concrete...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

This was largely his initial reaction -- the "wrongness" relating in large part of the badly-defined nature of the "Lobby" and the lack of discussion as to how it actually works. I realize that you...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Following up, Friedman annoys me as much as anyone, but I checked From Beirut to Jerusalem, which was a book I liked a lot in the late 90s, and -- despite being written in '89, with a chapter added...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Of course I do. What I don't understand is why you are suggesting that I would sympathize with such idiotic views. (I never said I agree with the politics of Commentary, for heaven's sake, and it's...

I know I should stop, but I can't seem to help myself.



I think you are mischaracterizing the argument here. No one, certainly not Walter in the diavlog we've been talking about, has suggested...

I don't follow him all that closely, but I was somewhat surprised too. I think it speaks to how there's been a change going on in the nature of our Israel support, a change that worries even people...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Yes, and it's generally compatible with my own reaction to the W/M article and to the arguments one of them (Walt, I believe) presented during a bhtv appearance a while back.



I disagree. I...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

I wasn't offended, and I didn't think I'd been harsh, so I guess we are reading the conversation somewhat differently, but with no harm so far.

Anyway, more later -- I just wanted to quickly...

They seemed to me to be trying to do so, or at least not clearly distinguishing the different reasons. They quite simplistically and unconvincingly dismissed other possible reasons in the article. ...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

ledocs, there are two different arguments here, which are getting conflated.

One is what is the rational US policy wrt Israel. I believe that there are multiple reasonable answers to that...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

I think that's over-simplifying. Clearly, Israel and the US don't have identical interests, because they are different countries in extremely different locations who are currently involved in quite...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

The realist critique is that US policy is not consistent with what the US ought to do, according to realist views (or the views of some realists, like W&M). And I'm sure that's true. But the...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

I didn't say it's not a compelling interest. I said it's not a compelling explanation. I don't believe that the US has ever believed that its Israel policy was putting its access to oil at risk. ...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

I agree that this would be an interesting topic to discuss, but I'm not entirely sure what the best approach would be. Right now I'm thinking of two separate diavlogs.

One would be basically...

Re: Looks like I was wrong. Here's the CBS poll numbers

I don't think that's surprising. I skimmed the poll and it's missing strength of opinion type questions (at least I didn't find any) that would be important.

Edit: it is interesting and...

To focus on this specifically--

I don't think it's quite fair to blame Walter for not addressing Glenn's questions. Glenn, unfortunately, started out with the "it's the Jews" explanation, and...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Why odd?
