Confronting Revolution: Security Through Diplomacy In Central America


The United States needs a new foreign policy for Central America, one deeply rooted in an accurate assessment of contemporary realities in the region, one that embodies our nation’s founding principles and responds to our genuine interests in the region. We must give up past policies guided by a hegemonic strategic vision that has become increasingly costly and counterproductive. What we need is a policy of principled realism, one that pursues not only our security, but peace, democracy, and broadly shared development as well.
