Three Foreign-Policy Illusions

From a Wall Street Journal commentary by Jakob Grygiel headlined “Three Foreign-Policy Illusions”:

Simultaneous crises are threatening global stability and taxing U.S. power and attention. Russia’s war in Ukraine, Hamas and Iran’s aggression against Israel and China’s threats in the Pacific are all products of the grand ambitions of evil imperial regimes.

The West has cultivated illusions that have allowed these threats to rise and have left it unprepared. Three in particular are deeply ingrained in the American and European mindsets.
