'Smart Power' Stumped

from Washington Times by Donald Lambro

The world's terrorists and rogue nations have clearly become more dangerous since President Obama took office, and analysts say they're testing him to see how much they can get away with. North Korea, Iran, al Qaeda in Iraq and the Afghan Taliban have gotten much more threatening in recent months, while the administration pursues a new foreign policy based on the belief that they can achieve much more through soft diplomacy - sitting down with our adversaries and having a "dialogue" with them. In an ever-more-dangerous world, the Obama administration says it is practicing "smart power" instead of "hard power."
