Overview

Stanley Hoffmann writes: "My criticism of, and indignation at, the war in Iraq echoes my feelings and analysis of the Vietnam War, and expresses my worries about the direction taken by the American nation under the administration of George W. Bush." In the first of these essays, written shortly after the conclusion of "major combat" in Iraq, Hoffmann details the many ways in which the Bush administration, particularly in its unilateralist determination to make war on Saddam Hussein, has changed the way America conducts its relations with other nations, and suggests ways in which democratic nations might collectively intervene to assist nations suffering under oppressive regimes. In the second, he analyzes the challenges we face in Iraq, and offers his ideas on the most effective strategy for withdrawing U.S. forces and helping the country achieve democracy and stability under international supervision.
