„In general terms, satisfied states extend commitments abroad when they must, not when they can. They are motivated by necessity rather than opportunity. Rising states extend commitments abroad when they can, not when they must. They are motivated by opportunity rather than necessity.“

—  Charles A. Kupchan American university teacher 1958

Quelle: The End of the American Era (2002), Chapter six: "The Limits of American Internationalism—Looking Ahead"
