The Clinton Doctrine

Charles Krauthammer deduces the central axiom of left-liberal foreign policy: “The use of American force is always wrong, unless deployed in a region of no strategic significance to the United States.” Isn’t this the pure essence of the Clinton Doctrine? Isn’t this column about ten years overdue? In any event, it’s a good one: “Liberal Democrats’ perverse foreign policy.”
Actually, I think that this statement of the central axiom of left-lilberal foreign policy and distillation of the pure essence of the Clinton Doctrine should be refined slightly: “The use of American force is always wrong unless it is deployed for a purpose that bears no relationship to the national interest of the United States.”
