Leaders must offer big ideas for Mideast
August 1, 2002
By Jim Hoagland Washington Post Writers Group In a time of Middle Eastern turmoil that calls for giants of spirit and of vision, the region is afflicted with pygmies who cannot see beyond their own immediate interests. They capitulate to moral obtuseness shaped by decades of conflict and corruption. The Bush administration more by circumstance than design has come to a giant-sized ambition for the region: Washington now anchors its plans for the removal of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and for the creation of an independent, responsible Palestinian state in an American commitment to promoting democracy in the Middle East. That noble goal justifies the expenditure of American treasure, effort and perhaps lives in the region.
