Smart Power Put to Dumb Uses?

Interesting counterpoint in Foreign Policy today to Joseph Nye’s recent column, on the same site, about the U.S. government’s use of smart power, especially efforts undertaken by State and USAID. In the counterpoint, the successful, oft-underestimated uses of smart/soft power by the U.S. military seem especially salient. Give both columns a read if you have a chance.
