Urgently needed: a new Mideast polity

Davis, Charles N.

National Catholic Reporter;9/8/2006, Vol. 42 Issue 39, p18
The article comments on the consequences of the actions of the U.S. President George W. Bush on the war on terrorism. It will cause decline in the U.S. position in the world, provoke dangerous new anti-American coalitions and encourages new generation of terrorists. The decline could be worst if the U.S. were to carry out bombing campaign to eliminate Iran's capability to manufacture nuclear weapons. The need for a dramatic revision of foreign policy is to recover the American strength.
