To Mr. Kagan, American action to stop the militants is imperative, but a continued military presence in Iraq and action in Syria would have averted the crisis. “It’s striking how two policies driven by the same desire to avoid the use of a military power are now converging to create this burgeoning disaster,” Mr. Kagan said in an interview.
And Obama invited this asshole “to lunch to compare world views.”
We want to send the same people we oppose in Iraq weapons in Syria. This is very clear. What about this do the The New York Times, The New Republic and the rest of the mainstream media not get? Is Obama really this naive? Or is he somehow backed into a corner and is just incompetent. Does he just not understand basic history – even that occurring in his adult political life? What is going on?
John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and Robert Kagan have all been consistently on the wrong side of the truth and of history in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, and Iraq(now several times combined). Obama was only right about Iraq before he was in elected federal office. Let’s not even talk about Afghanistan. Don’t even go there. He was right to bring Bergdahl home. Let’s start minding our own business now. Our problems are of our own making.
These people won’t stop until an American Stinger missile sent to the Syrian rebels takes down an F-18 over Baghdad…nah, that won’t stop them.
