    Dear Fukuyama :

    Much pleased to exchange letter of information with you.
    For more than 10 years,I have enjoyed reading and talking of “war” with my colleague in same campus, from reading America’s Self-Defeating Hegemony last October
    I am prof.of philosophy,now semi-official commentator for K.T.Your article(10/21) of “korea as a model for
    Iraq” will be a catalyst for topic to be discussed with you. Your telling critical argument for withdrawl of U.S.
    armies from Iraq and Korea is very timely for watching my eye for a few days,because it give me a variety of interpretation for changeable situation world-wide.it sounds good,but there is a catch here.

    Your assumption of 1000 words essay is realistic review of world affairs,but real term of realism in foreign
    affairs is changing from time to time;space to space.You are one of authors in that field.40 years ago,Dr.
    Kissinger started to dispatch ping-pong team across pacific ocean to get in touch with Red China.After
    exchanging a few playful games,he got little bear from China,which was expanded to cultural service,
    finally exchanging political diplomat between two countries.
    If american armies are leaving Bagdad at instant basis as you are suggesting,how long do you suppose
    they can enjoy vacancy of military power? Not permanent time as long as 50 years? It will be instantly replaced
    by another group under name of friendly protection.Who will keep princeling of Dubai or Emritus from being
    kidnaped by sea-thief? They are planning to build up sky-rocketing recreation center.Tourist should be informed
    of going abroad and backwards.The windfalls have some important upsides for oil-producing nations and the world at large.Saudi Arabia’s oil revenues have surged from $60 billion in 2000 to an estimated $152 billion in 2007.
    Unhappily to say,it has hindered democracy or capitalism.Government with large oil recepts need less consent
    from the government to stay in power.They can reward their friends and buy off their opposition,or pay to have it
    crushed.There is a war;where is oil dollar.Thank you for suggesting sub-text for discussion with my student.
