Topple Outlaw Regimes


From my most recent NRO article, on Syria and other rogue regimes: “It is not the West’s concern or obligation to ensure that the succeeding regime governs more gently or progressively. We aren’t responsible for the governments of these countries; we are responsible for our own protection and the protection of our allies and interests, as well as for the maintenance of at least a modicum of international law. If the pattern is established of sworn and active and provokingly aggressive enemies of the West coming to swift and nasty ends, the fashion of provoking the West will miraculously go out of style.”

Whether you agree or disagree, your comments are, as always, most welcome.
