The Krautmaster General

An excellent and important article by Charles Krauthammer in today's Opinion Journal. So much of the criticism of Bush's foreign policy is based on moment in time micro views of the insurgency in Iraq, or our dealings with Musharraf in Pakistan that it fails to capture the full strategic picture. Krauthammer does an excellent job of defining the strategy, contextualizing it in recent history, and drawing a roadmap of where it must go.

Of course this is just one view, and as Krauthammer points out there are several views on the right that have supported a very healthy debate. What Krauthammer doesn't say, but readers here know that I will, is that it is sad that no such discussion is credibly in action on the left.
