Obama's Policy for Foreign affairs: Respect

Samantha Powers spins Obama's upcoming speech on Foreign Policy with The Politiker,
"When he talks about restoring America's standing in the world," Power said, "it's born of a very clear-eyed, almost cold understanding that in these international bodies we will not get what we want -- we will not get the solutions we need if we do not have respect."
When the foe buys mentally ill children as suicide bombers, Obama and Powers really owe us a full explanation of how respect yields solutions. If respect is what's passing for realism in Foreign Affairs, well, it just doesn't seem very realistic.
