Alex's Outlook

Monday, June 16, 2003

Gaza and the West Bank are boiling with Hamas-induced violence, and Sen. Lugar thinks we should send peacekeepers to Israel. But if Israel's army can't smoke out Hamas, what good will a few more Americans do? Ever since Iraq the US has rapidly assumed the mantle of world policeman again. Bush just sent 1800 Marines to Liberia (yes, that cesspool of tribal warfare in west Africa). Why? What possible interest does the United States have in Libera? Neoconservatism is about using force aggressively to defend our interests, not keeping Africa's tribes from each other's throats.
