The End of “Moderation” In The Arab World

Email Email Print

The New York Times’ David Kirkpatrick has a must-read this morning, on the passing of the “moderate reformer” in the Arab world.  Their best hope was Iraq, 2008.  That’s gone now.  America didn’t have the stomach for doing there what it did in Japan and Korea.

“We didn’t get that done,” Hillary told Christiane Amanpour, speaking of a Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq to succeed the one negotiated by George W. Bush through 2011, and as Fred Kagan said on the show yesterday, it could have been done but President Obama and his Secretary of State put no priority on it. They walked away from the moderate reformers of Iraq.  With that failure the clock on the time bomb began to tick.  The results are seen today in Iraq and will unfold across the Middle East for decades to come.
