Who’s reckless?

Posted by Brian on January 8, 2008

I’m going to have a Ron Paul moment here…

The other day, Iranian and American ships had a minor confrontation in the Straight of Hormuz. White House spokeswoman said that the Iranian actions were “reckless and provocative,” and that they “should not do it again.”

Reckless? Provocative? We send our warships to the other side of the planet to float alongside a country our leadership has been agitating against for years, and they are the ones being reckless and provocative? We can run around the world dictating this and demanding that but should any country bump pack even in the slightest we can accuse them of being troublemakers? The sheer hypocricy of it is overwhelming.

It’s time for a modest, dare I say humble, foreign policy.
