So, what’s the plan? Liberate the Syrians and leave the end game to random fate (like the Afghan/Soviet scenario) or some sort of incompetent privatized scam (Iraq/Halliburton)? Some kind of Marshall plan, maybe?
Before 9/11, I had a strong belief in yanking the Taliban out of power. What have I learned since then? Sure, we have the power to liberate a village by destroying it, but that can only win you so many hearts and minds.
On the other hand, I won’t object to a drone strike that takes Assad off the planet… maybe our Chicago President can orchestrate a leaner whack job than the big Texas extravaganza we had with the Saddam hit.
Putin might object.
