The Washington Post’s Peter Baker turns in a very fair and very balanced assessment of the assessments of the Israel-Hezbollah war.

There are two distinct American narratives about what is going on in the world right now.  Baker gives voice to them both, as a reporter should. 

My favorite graph:

All of this is far too gloomy for administration officials, who see such dire forecasts as the predictable reactions of a foreign policy establishment that has produced decades of meaningless talks, paper peace agreements and unenforced U.N. resolutions that have not solved underlying issues in the Middle East.

The most penetrating graph:

“It’s really a proxy war between the United States and Iran,” said David J. Rothkopf, a scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and author of “Running the World,” a book on U.S. foreign policy. “When viewed in that context, it puts everything in a different light.”
