 Asia Times Online :: Asian News, Business and Economy.
WASHINGTON - However much President George W Bush's "Freedom Agenda" asserted itself into US foreign policy in the wake of the Iraq invasion three years ago, traditional geopolitics - and the realpolitik that goes with it - is making a remarkably strong comeback.
Meanwhile, in Central Asia, Washington is vigorously promoting the construction of a proposed pipeline project that would transport gas from Turkmenistan - whose regime's bizarre, Stalin-era cult of personality has made it impossible for Bush to upgrade ties substantially - to India as a substitute for a much cheaper Iran-Pakistan-India link.
The move underscores the degree to which Bush's declaration 17 months ago that the "ultimate goal" of US policy was "ending tyranny in our world" has been cast aside in the interests of old-fashioned geopolitics.
