George F. Kennan moves on

kennan, primary architect of the theory of containment, has passed away at the young age of 101...some say he is the most important american diplomat of the past half century for, i suppose, coming up with the idea that we should contain the spread of communism without resorting to war...our ideology (values) would trump theirs...

a very influential man no doubt...

as always wikipedia online encyclopedia has the goods too

and here is the article that changed the course of american foreign policy, established kennan's legacy, and led to this post in the first place..
