Violence Never Solved Anything Department

Dennis Ross has a good piece in the Journal about how the American use of force is already realigning the Middle East in a positive way. This was one of the central arguments of numerous NR Editorials from the get-go. Obviously, it’s early. But Syria’s curtailment of Hezbollah and its withdrawal of 4,000 troops from Lebanon can hardly be construed as a negative consequence of war (except, perhaps, by the Knight of Croatia, Pat Buchanan).
