Reader comment on item: White House Nonchalance toward the Middle East

Submitted by rench (United States), Mar 21, 2006 at 17:42

Its part clear and still foggy.The policy gets the sense of the problem but still holds too limited a view of the implications .Still hopes for world peace. And still assumes the US can do no wrong. I'd bet the mideast is the place to be as far as global strategy is concerned.

But we may not be strong enough to hold our position. The US is in a prime spot, possibly at the peak of power. I get the sense the policy statement by the NSC vaguely recongnizes the current global times. And all in all tries to put it in paper without being too clear or too foggy. Just tries to plan what is and whats to be done with it. In my view theres not many good options in the mideast. So why not try for the moral high ground as much as possible.Even though it may be too little too late.The die may be cast.
