One of the contemporary subjects I am most interested in is American empire. Unfortunately, the 2004 election is unlikely to yield any measurable changes in US imperialism, and the Globblog will devote a series of daily postings next week to show you why.

The series will be based on an analysis of the foreign policy document titled "Progressive Internationalism: A Democratic National Security Strategy" put out by the Progressive Policy Institute, the "new Democrat" thinktank. Mark Hand, writing in Counterpunch earlier this year, called the document "Kerry's version of PNAC". You remember PNAC, don't you? The Project for a New American Century which hatched the Bush Administration's 2002 National Security Strategy and its 2003 invasion of Iraq?

If you want to know what President Kerry would do for American empire, follow the General's commentary every day next week, starting Monday.
