  • One Foreign Policy Screwup After Another...

    This is absolutely incredible...
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    It goes back to the Iraqis being just as afraid of the Kurds as ISIS.

    Reminds me of the situation with the Monetyards in Vietnam.

    Obama is married to the idea of propping up the Bagdad gov't, which won't fight, and that means treating the Kurds, who will fight, as second-line considerations.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.
