You can claim that the post-WWII restructuring of the world economy didn't work (in which case I will scratch my head and muse about the fastest generation of growth that the world economy--or indeed the then-less-developed countries--ever saw). But I don't think you can claim that George Kennan was on the "dovish" wing of the American foreign policy establishment...
