Stability and Instability in the Middle-East

This lengthy piece by Max Boot from The Weekly Standard fits right into our conversations regarding the question of de-stabilizing the area. In part the article is a response to the letter that Bishop Wilton D. Gregory sent to President Bush on September 13. I hasten to add, just to tick Tucker off, that I am in agreement with it. I think it’s persuasive.

This article is less relevant than Peter thinks, since stability is not the issue or rather it is a relatively small point in the argument about whether it is better to make the war on terrorism or Saddam our priority. Also, I would add, as I note in the long blog above, that Boot is wrong on an important point about the effect of using force.
