Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

We Are Not Going To War With Syria

We are very likely to strike military targets over a narrow window of time and then stop.  We are not attempting regime change.  We are not putting soldiers on the ground.

The best comparison isn't even Libya.  It's Yemen.

So everyone arguing that we shouldn't "go to war" with Syria is arguing against a straw man.
