We should police when it is in our vested national interest to do so. When we fight wars, we need to DECLARE war and fight like we did in WWII. Our police work in Afghanistan and Iraq were “targeted” and under ROE’s that created defeat. Nothing obama would do in syria would make any positive change for us or the world... the time for that action was when he was policing Libya... and that was right after he policed Egypt... how is all that working out for our republic?
“When we fight wars, we need to DECLARE war and fight like we did in WWII.”
The problems in Egypt & Syria go back to the beginnings of their protests. They started with students and people who wanted a more democratic government. Neither one started with MB or alqaeda types involved....those groups move in when there’s a vacuum or when they see that it’s opportunistic to do so because the West is standing by the sidelines not wanting to get involved.
The time to help in Syria was 2 yrs ago.
