Setting aside Washington’s woeful Middle East policies, it is worth reminding ourselves that the United States is one of the greatest nations on the planet. A world in which it did not exist would be poorer in terms of technology, space exploration, medical advances, entertainment and life-changing inventions.
No nation or person is without fault. Just as we are quick to fault America, we should also celebrate its blessings.Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor
I was critical of President Barack Obama’s embrace of Iran, his lack of commitment to a Palestinian state, and his failure to intervene in order to save the Syrian people sandwiched between regime bombs and terrorists. That I was able to speak my mind on a country’s mistakes on its own soil means America is confident enough to hear constructive criticism, unlike many other countries that pay lip service to free expression.
