Foreign policy: Republicans need to contribute instead

Republicans seem to have one mission: to thwart President Obama, no matter the issue or his position on it. Columnist Nicholas Kristof is correct in describing foreign policy as a minefield [“Obama’s weakness, or ours?” Opinion, June 26]. Many of the positions or arguments the U.S. used in the past are no longer valid or have become virtually meaningless. New skills and level heads are needed.

It would be helpful if the Republican leadership could contribute something positive to foreign policy discussions instead of constantly sniping and belittling Obama. If they don’t like Obama’s policies, why don’t they suggest something else, preferably without guns blazing and their usual Wild West attitude? Haven’t they learned anything from the horrors perpetrated in Iraq and Afghanistan by President George W. Bush and Dick Cheney?
