Newt’s Foreign Policy Fantasies

When Kim Jong-Il finally test launched a missile this week, I knew it was only a matter of time before some neocon would cry out for the resurrection of the Bush doctrine of pre-emptive war. Sure enough, reported The Raw Story on Sunday: “€œOnly hours after North Korea launched a rocket, Newt Gingrich was on television saying the United States should have preemptively attacked the nuclear-armed country “€“ with an electromagnetic pulse. “€˜We do not appreciate the scale of threat that is evolving on the planet,”€™ the former House Speaker said on Fox News Sunday. “€˜And North Korea is a totally irresponsible dictatorship run by a person who is clearly out of touch with reality.”€ Reacting to President Obama’s refusal to take military action against nations like North Korea and Iran, Gingrich said “€œOne morning, just like 9/11, there’s going to be a disaster… (and) I have yet to see the United Nations do anything effective with either Iran or North Korea.”€ As for Obama’s meeting with Russian president Dmitry Medvedev, Gingrich said Russia cannot be trusted and that “€œIt’s very dangerous to have a fantasy foreign policy, and it can get you in enormous trouble.”€

Gingrich is right. It is dangerous to have a fantasy foreign policy “€“ which is exactly why Americans who value safety, security and peace should not be listening to the dangerous, foreign policy fantasies of Newt Gingrich.
