Robert Kaplan's praise of western imperialism

In this week's Nation, William Hartung says in passing that "One of the more egregious examples of this new interventionism was Robert Kaplan's recent call for a revival of 'western imperialism' to save the Balkans and prevent a new East/West divide." Does anyone know what article or book he's referring to? I thought it would be in the Atlantic Magazine, but while their search engine turned up a lot of articles by Kaplan that might imply such a position, Hartung's quotation marks give the impression that somewhere he came directly out and said it in so many words. Does anyone know where?
