Lion and the Lamb

David Ignatius on our course in the Middle East:

What the Bush administration needs to do now is fashion a strategy for the Middle East in which its strike against Iraq won’t seem crazy, but part of a sensible plan for a new and stable order in the Middle East. That shouldn’t be impossible; the status quo, after all, is a mess — and has been for decades.

That’s the problem with those who argue for caution and inaction. They’re defending a status quo that’s rotten — one that has left the Arab world perpetually unstable, and one in which U.S. interests seem constantly at risk. A new order would benefit everyone, most of all the Arabs.


You read much the same thing on this site two days ago. Ignatius is right
