In general I try to avoid focusing on U.S. policy in this blog. I’ve written about U.S. foreign policy before, and I’ve written about issues in which the U.S. plays a major role (like the post earlier this week). But I don’t like commenting on American policy too much, since this is a global site and I try to keep it from fixating too much on one nation’s perspective. That being said, I’ve written an article that might be of interest to anyone following events in North Africa and West Asia, and anyone involved in debates on U.S. policy there. To sum it up, I am exasperated at the arguments that critics of Barack Obama’s foreign policy make and I feel that they don’t adequately appreciate the region’s tangled conflicts and woes and aren’t learning anything from historical examples.
