The National Interest

by Conrad Black

From my most recent NRO article, taking a bird’s-eye view of the strategic challenges America faces: “President Obama strengthened the commitment to Afghanistan and relaxed the previous administration’s preoccupation with democracy, but the Iranians took his appeasement of their fraudulent and brutal elections as a sign of weakness (which it was), and the president is retrenching in the world without much altering the purposeful rhetoric of previous presidents who were prepared to back their words with force. The result has been confusion and the perception of weakness.”

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