Iranian protests shed light on America's role in fomenting Middle East tensions

June 23, 1:10 PM
Russell Krauss - Boise Liberal Examiner


  

A remarkable and welcome dialogue emerged last week in the midst of the demonstrations and protests following the Iranian presidential election.  Predictably, many Republicans criticized Obama's measured and neutral response to the crisis, but for the most part they were civil, and certainly not unanimous.  Conservative columnist/television pundit George Will actually supported Obama's position, for example. Surprisingly the debate, which normally would have morphed into a food fight between right and left to the delight of the ratings-obsessed media, settled into a thoughtful and searching analysis, at least on the few cable shows that I tuned into. 

Experts were enlisted to explain the long and convoluted history of violence and conflict between the west and the countries of the Middle East. Usually we are treated to hyperbolic confrontations between Republican and Democratic operatives, as if every issue in the universe can be reduced to political polemics.
