[Marxism] Realism

thank you for this analysis, Louis. I was making the exact opposite point.
Human rights and democracy are a thin veneer for US aims which
are well described as offensive realism. There may be dissent within the 
realist
school, but US policy is easily justified and understood in terms of 
Mearsheimer's
theory of offensive realism. He seems to think his own theory fails to 
explain
US offensives in Iraq and Lebanon and has thus to invent the bogeyman of the
Israeli Lobby. This is a disavowal of his own theory and a plunge into
anti Semitism.
