A Forward Strategy of Freedom is Exactly Right
This piece by Elliott Abrams, who had the Mideast portfolio in the George W. Bush administration, has it exactly right. The old regimes could not last without reform -- a condition that prevails still for many Arab nations (and a Persian one too). Rather than lament the appeal of Islamism, it's time for America to help to spread and reinforce the ideals of liberal democracy and freedom -- and help build institutions of civil society. That's what we are trying to do at the Bush Institute. http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2012/01/23/a_forward_strategy_of_freedom This post written by James K.
