Romney and company are charging that “the U.S. is failing to effectively shape new Arab governments such as Libya and Egypt...”. That shows either ignorance, naiveté, or dangerous arrogance on the part of the Republicans. It is even frightening for those of us who can remember the 1930s and early ’40s and how a certain Western European country applied “shaping” other nations.
There is one fundamental question every voter should consider. Would you have been comfortable to have Willard “Mitt” Romney, Paul Ryan, and their senior foreign policy advisor, the near insane bomb thrower, John Bolton, running the White House at the beginning of the Cuban missile crisis?
Armageddon, here we come.
