U.S. Elections: "Itâs the policy, stupid!"
â¦Even though the goal of fighting international terrorism is undeniable, the means for it have caused a lot of intense controversies. The fight against international terrorism needs a wide and solid coalition, and the public opinion attitude is very important. Polls made by reputed American organizations show the fact that the US are very far away from such a thing, when we take into account the public opinion attitude in the entire world . Last but not least, we have to refer to the international environment and to the legitimacy of such a policyâ¦ Unilateralism has limited chances if it doesnât bring together extended suffrages regarding its main intentions. The lessons mentioned earlier are important for NATO as well..". Letâs hope the report of the Baker-Hamilton Commission will help making another kind of policy for Iraq. The idea of an international conference that, together with Iraq, the USA, the EU, Russia, Turkey and so on, would involve important regional actors deserves all the attention it can get. A stabilization of the situation is needed in order to avoid chaos, even if this doesnât necessarily mean the end of the fight against terrorism. A hurried withdrawal of the Romanian troops from Iraq would harm the relations with the allies. However, the Romanian society has to know the situation in Iraq and its consequences as well. The successes and failures of its strategic partner, the USA, have consequences on Romania. P.S. Robert Gates, the new Pentagon chief, has very good relations with Brent Scowcroft and Zbignew Brzezinsky, two of the most important critics of the Iraq intervention.
