  •  I'm unclear about how to feel, here. (0+ / 0-)

    Personally, the only investment we have in Syria is the humanitarian one paired with President Obama's need to support his credibility.

    I'm ambivalent about the whole thing and the case hasn't been made (imo) that strikes are needed from a military perspective. Separately, all our military spending perpetuates itself and I'm not convinced that we need to fire bullets simply because we have them. I've already been subjected to Republican rhetoric about how devastating Obama's "cuts" to the military budget have been.

    The victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.
