Pax Corleone

John C. Hulsman and A. Wess Mitchell make a solid case over at the National Interest for the argument that Francis Ford Coppola, in addition to being a filmmaking giant, was also a foreign policy visionary. Their reading of the Godfather as a prescription for American foreign policy in the post-9/11 era is pretty convincing, and definitely the most creative foreign policy analysis I’ve come across in a long time. It’s too good to spoil it with a takeaway, so just click through and read it for yourself.
