President Bush visited the U.N. on Tuesday where he explained:
“Eventually there is no safe isolation from terror networks or failed states that shelter them or outlaw regimes or weapons of mass destruction. Eventually there is no safety in looking away, seeking the quiet life by ignoring the struggles and oppression of others.”
These are of course some of the important lessons of this era. But one could add that we now know that there is also no domestic isolation from our foreign policy decisions and actions.
We know the obvious. Opression, bad. WMDs, bad. Terrorists and Murderers, bad. The challenge is coming up with policies to confront these threats.
