I don't even pretend to be very knowledgeable about foreign policy so I seldom write about it. But the dialog around Turkey honestly has me confused. Nancy Pelosi argues that we need to call out Turkey right now in order "to restore America's moral authority around the world." So I get the moral dimension of calling out bad people for bad actions. But it was my understanding that this was what Democrats found facile in Bush's foreign policy, that Bush called out countries like North Korea and pre-invasion Iraq for being part of an axis of evil. Is it then Pelosi's position that morality in foreign policy consists of pointing out evil actions committed by our allies eighty years ago, but avoiding calling out current evil actions by our enemies?
