I am no a foreign policy expert.
I am definitely not an expert in military history or tactics. I have little familiarity with the science, such as it is, of national and international security.
I am particularly not adept at issues involving the Middle East, a region of the world that I have never visited and that is populated by diverse cultures that I know little about and people who speak languages that I don't speak. I can't even call their languages "beautiful" as is the tradition, because I am not cunning linguist enough to know.
