This is good as far as it goes. But he needs to go farther. Romney needs to point out that nation-building is a disaster, that it is not the role of the U.S. to “bring freedom” to the Mideast. Our role is to protect our interests, not meddle in internal politics as we did in Egypt, Libya and are doing in Syria, with disastrous consequences.
nation building has been a disaster for a long time. The ONLY country we should have attacked was Afghanistan. We could have gotten rid of Saddam Hussane by using the Seal Team. Iraq cost us quite a bit not only American treasures but politically. We would most likely not have had to go through a 2006 Democratic majority or even have Obama as President.
