Good rejoinder, Dr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: Romney Stumbles on Foreign Policy
in response to reader comment: If it bleeds it leads

I'm glad you mentioned the Congo. There was a war involving several states in Central Africa when Mobutu was declining, yet the major media in the USA scarcely mentioned it! Indonesia is in a dicey situation, there are problems in China, despite its new economic clout, and the Korean Peninsula remains a potential flashpoint.

However, the Obama administration's embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood (even if only to put a brave face on a bad situation) and ignoring the Egyptian mobs' 'Obama, Obama, we are all Osama', it's preference for bullying obscure Americans over perceived insults to Islam than for standing up for the First Amendment,and the utterly disproportionate attention in Obama's UN speech to the Nakhoula film--all are things Romney should have addressed. But I will not vote for someone who seems too willing to sacrifice the First Amendment to please political clients, whether at home or abroad.
