With all that is raging in Palestine right now, it’s easy to forget that misguided US foreign policy is not slowing down in its efforts to promote tensions in the Middle East.
In what I expect will become a regular appearance at the Mondoweiss web site, I published yesterday my first piece for them. In it, I explore the highly dangerous policy that Dennis Ross recommended in an article in The Atlantic. In it, Ross essentially pressed for a Mideast NATO. I argue, among other things, that Ross feels this must be done as soon as possible lest the Baghdad dialogue between Iran and the Gulf states, including Saudi Arabia, bear fruit and lead to diplomacy rather than the war Ross so badly wants.
