An excellent piece from Mr. Hanson on the current situation in the Middle East.
From the article:
“In such a mess, the challenge for America should have been to prod pro-American authoritarians to reform (but not to abdicate), to support staunchly our very few democratic friends, to oppose publicly anti-American totalitarians, and wherever possible to stay out of intervening militarily, given that no resistance group as of yet has proved democratic, or indeed has even published much of a liberal reform manifesto.”
Read the whole thing. It’s a good primer on Mid-East policy
