This is such a typical, rhetorical flourish of “conservative” foreign policy that I thought better of even responding. I am weary of those that think that saying “radical Islam” will somehow solve the real problem with our chaotic foreign policy. It won’t. I’m weary of being told that my elected representatives should subvert our sovereign authority to conduct foreign policy to Israel — which has done nothing to contribute to the massive expenditures of blood and treasure on our part to help ensure its security.
Until “conservatives” can learn to read and understand historical context earlier than 1945 — and without ignoring 2003 — I will consider to view their vision of the future of international order suspect.
