Asia: el poder blando funciona

Mensaje de Colin Powell para los halcones de EEUU y de Oriente Medio. El poder blando (los militares salvando vidas) puede ser más efectivo que el poder duro (los militares matando gente).

"We'd be doing it regardless of religion. But I think it does give the Muslim world and the rest of the world an opportunity to see American generosity, American values in action."

"America is not an anti-Islam, anti-Muslim nation. America is a diverse society where we respect all religions. And I hope that as a result of our efforts, as a result of our helicopter pilots being seen by the citizens of Indonesia helping them, that value system of ours will be reinforced."
