Mitt Romney’s foreign policy is about what you should expect from someone who evaded the Vietnam military draft by hiding out as a minister of religion — in France, no less. Like most Chickenhawks, as soon as the shooting stopped, Mitt suddenly became chest-beatingly aggressive, hoping that people might forget that he showed the white feather when it came time to stand up for his country.
His policy regarding the Middle East is something only a non-veteran could relate to, as he advocates “leading from the front” in Syria. If we should find the occasion to meddle in any foreign nation’s internal affairs, the most unwise thing I can think of would be leading from the front. Our record in these situations is 100 percent failure.
He might take a lesson from Dwight Eisenhower, who approached foreign affairs successfully by leading from the rear. Mitt should think about this as he advocates U.S. asssistance to the Muslim brotherhood.
