Change in US foreign Policy

This morning Washington Post's article on the shift in US diplomatic relations is one to read!  Since the Cold War the US has been focused on combatting communism, but now this is not so much needed, so Rice is changing US relations to combat terrorism. 

This could have a drastic impact on poverty-reduction.  I would argue that the best way to rid the world of terrorism would be to focus on poverty-reduction, and give people the tools to survive, then they would not feel so oppressed and want to lash out at others who have more or may have contributed to their poverty.

But for all those high school students out there, it looks like good college courses to pick may include learning Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, and Urdu, as learning these will soon be the only way to advance in jobs with State.
