    This is too difficult for some people to recognize.

    Of course it isn't exactly Iraq right now — the situation hasn't fully played out yet, but the circumstances you note are undeniably similar.

    Maybe people are having trouble seeing it because they can't fathom that this might be happening by way of a Democratic president. Or they really believe bombs will somehow solve the problem. I'm not sure which is worse.

    When it comes to war, I'd much rather take it seriously now and end up wrong, than wear horse blinders and look back with shame, after the fact.
