Ⅱ. The Evaluation of Realism Relevance
Ⅲ. The Evaluation of Liberalism Relevance
Ⅳ. Liberal Criticism of the U.S. Foreign Policy
The 9/11 terrorist attacks dealt a great blow on realism, as the world superpower with unrivalled military capability was penetrated by non-state terrorist group. It seems like that the realism assumption was penetrated by liberalism. Nevertheless, the Bush administration responded to drastically changed situations with a harsh realist approach.
Even the sole superpower cannot cope with transnational threats by himself. Only global cooperation can root out global terrorist network and prevent threat of WMD. This is the reason why the liberalist view is remarkably relevant in the present international politics.
