Foreign Policy

For too long, our foreign policy has been “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” See, for example: the Shah of Iran, Saddam in Iraq, and many petty dictators in the Cold War.

We should change that around to “The enemy of my enemy is just some guy, y’know?” Deal with them on their own merits. If we actually like them, great! But if the only thing we have in common is a shared enemy, it’s probably going to come back to bite us later.
