The Bad-Good Idea of Removing Assad
Victor Davis Hanson, National Review
Intervention, even if by air or through stealthy military assistance, requires some sort of strategy, and right now the United States does not seem to have any coherent one. We expected that post-Qaddafi Libya, and an Egypt without Hosni Mubarak, would be far better. They might be some day. But right now, emerging Islamic republics are hardly democratic. Some seem every bit as anti-American as were the dictatorships they replaced - and they could be even more intolerant of women, tribal minorities, and Christians.
TAGGED: Bashar al-Assad, Syria
