The view from Australia:
FRANCIS Fukuyama is the American public intellectual who pronounced the end of history 19 years ago and was a neo-conservative, an idea and an ideology that both suggest he is out of date.
To the contrary, his visit to Australia this week demonstrated that he has a great deal to say that is incisive and challenging. Now a supporter of Barack Obama, the Johns Hopkins University professor of international political economy epitomises the great shift taking place in American democracy, one that this year may swing the most aggressively conservative and unilateral US administration in modern history all the way to one led by a black president who advocates engagement with Iran, American enemy No.1.
Well, when you put it like that…
But how did Iran become our number one enemy?
