Foreign Policy Comes Back to Haunt Us


From the start, opponents of the American empire warned that the government could not violate the rights of foreigners without eventually violating the rights of Americans.

The Failure of U.S. Foreign Policy in the Middle East


While focusing on the ‘failure’ of American foreign policy in the Middle East it is relevant to acknowledge that given the circumstances of the region failure to some degree was probably unavoidable. The argument put forward here is that the degree and form of failure reflected avoidable choices that could and should have been corrected, or at least mitigated over time, but by and large this has not happened and it is important to understand why.
