Failed Strategy

In a commentary carried by the LA Times, Madeleine Albright demonstrates beyond a doubt of a doubt why the Clinton administration was not only incompetent, but also unqualified to defend the interests of the United States.

Ms. Albright does not believe in the existence of good and evil. And because of that, she and her boss completely failed to recognize that evil men take pleasure in committing the most vile acts.

"It is sometimes convenient, for purposes of rhetorical effect, for national leaders to talk of a globe neatly divided into good and bad. It is quite another, however, to base the policies of the world's most powerful nation upon that fiction."

Ms. Albright ignores the Holocaust, the massacres in the Ukraine, Ghana, Rwanda, China and many more. History is replete with the horrors of man's inhumanity to man, yet she blithefully blathers on.

Her solutions are:
1) Admit failure in Iraq - "The U.S. is no longer able to control events in Iraq, but it can be useful as a referee."
2) Admit failure in Iran - "The Bush administration should disavow any plan for regime change in Iran not because the regime should not be changed but because U.S. endorsement of that goal only makes it less likely."
3) Admit failure in the Middle East - "...the administration must stop playing solitaire while Middle East and Persian Gulf leaders play poker."

I wouldn't allow this tired political hack to run a paper route. She counsels the Bush administration to cease present operations in the Middle East and instead allow murders and thieves to dictate US foreign policy. This from someone who runs a business that represents Arab interests (DP World). I wonder how much The Albright Group, LLC was paid to write that self serving piece of crap.

No wonder the Clinton administration will not only be remembered for it's scandals but for it's utter failure to recognize the dangers posed by Muslim terrorists. Three bombings (WTC the first, AF barracks at Khobar, and the USS Cole) occurred under his watch with virtually no response.

Ronald Reagan 's foreign policy was successful because he believed that the Soviet Union was evil and then worked to hasten its collapse. Bill Clinton and Madeleine Albright believed in nuanced complexities and accomplished nothing.

I have witnessed evil. I've walked in blood pools so thick and slick that I had to hold onto the furniture to keep my balance. I've held the next of kin as they collapsed from shock and grief. I have seen first hand what evil men can and will do and for the life of me I cannot understand how elected officials can be so blind.
