A studied and well reasoned note on foreign policy.

"Hesitation itself can become an effective policy."

Indeed it is; I am reminded of William Lamb, Lord Melbourne, who as British Prime Minister made a virtue of "masterful inaction" in the correct belief that many problems solved themselves in the fullness of time.

I would have thought that Syria and the Assad regime should have been left alone in the interests of regional stability. My understanding is, whatever their faults, they stuck to the letter of the law in their peace treaty with Israel.
