Story by Kurt Bresswein focuses on public lecture by Richard Armitage, former Deputy Secretary of State and guest speaker for the 23rd annual Rev. Thomas J. Furphy Lecture. During his talk, Armitage called for a notify-and-walk exit from Iraq, a move that would fall somewhere between cut-and-run and stay-the-course. The topic of the public lecture was the future of Asia, home to about 6.5 billion people, and some of the threats the region presents from turf wars between China and Taiwan, new nationalistic leadership in Japan and North Korea nuclear power. He also referred to Japan as the United States' most important ally. Armitage also stated that Americans can regain the affection of the world by showing the normal face of Americans, one of optimism and enthusiasm, rather than one of fear and anger that has been displayed in recent years..
