Foreign Policy Minus Realism June 26, 2007

Posted by Jim Satterfield in The Bush Administration, The Middle East.

Newsweek writes that the Mullahs of Iran aren’t even close to having a population willing to overthrow them. And of course the Bush Administration doesn’t realize this. In fact they have insisted on taking actions that hurt the cause of Iranians that would like to see their country be a republic in more than name. Virtually anyone who was paying attention to attitudes in that part of the world towards the U.S. could tell what kind of reaction our “aid” to democracy activists would produce. But I just have to seriously wonder if anyone in this administration asked anyone and if by chance they did ask did they pay any attention to the answer.
