Quote for the day.

“The strong do what they want, and the weak endure the consequences”.

Thucydides, 400 BC.

I just came across this in the context of an article from 2005 on realist conceptions of power, when international relations theorists had the US invasion of Iraq, contrary to UN Security Council dictates, very much on the mind.

More on international relations theory with a little puzzle later.
