The simple fact is that the GOP needs to become the party of restraint.
If we can’t look back on 50 years of American war fighting policy and find a single beacon of freedom that we’ve created, maybe its time to rethink those policies.

Yep. I always note we had no wars under Reagan. We built a very strong defense and used our power to promote our interests. We defeated the soviets without conflict in that time frame. We used military power when needed, but did not pursue war. It’s a good model. Peace through strength and restraint is a good philosophy.

There have been a couple of minor victories, but the grand nation-building projects have failed, or at least seem to have failed. I don't know who it is in Syria that McCain thinks reflects our interests or our values.
