Democrat Z. Brzezinski and B. Scowcroft,Republican national security expert discussed our role in the world: -
The new President of the US needs to end our military involvement in Iraq and be careful not to overmilitarize Afghanistan. He must energetically push the Israeli-Palestinian peace proces, and he needs to engage with China in a way that acknowledges its new global importance. My comment: Chinese language and Confucian philosophy should be studied by leaders so that we can have better understanding of China in the 21st century. "A Glimpse of the Chinese Language" and "Philosphy of Mencius" may be useful references. They are listed at the Library of Congress online catalog.www.loc.gov for information.
