25. I agree with you...

..... nobody likes the prospect of war but where are we?

11 years ago we invaded a country for no good reason. We destabilized a multi-ethnic situation that has been a powder keg throughout history by allowing, practically helping, one faction to gain control. Now the tribal wars are raging out of control.

Should we just walk away? The argument that "nothing good will come of anything we do" sounds like a slogan and I'm pretty sure it is not a fair or accurate assessment of the complex situation developing.

Obama does not have any good choices. So far, I think he is taking a moderate course, somewhere between "we're done here" and the neocon desire to "send in the troops".

As a frequent critic of Obama I believe that he's handing this as well as anyone could.
