So, President NotSuffering, what would YOU do? Provide only air cover, as in Libya? Ask Congress for a declaration of war? Whose side do you take—genocidal Assad’s, or Saudi/Qatari/Al-Qaeda? Do we go back to Black Sites, Rendition, Torture/Enhanced Interrogation? Should we monitor all internet and phone traffic? How do we know we’ve “won”? And do we owe them “nation-building” once we destroy what’s left of their infrastructure? How can we ever get out once in? Do we use a private vigilante army to do the work our present military is legally restricted from doing? Maybe some no-bid contracts to Halliburton (based in Dubai to avoid taxes) will turn the tide. Do we institute a draft? Remember that our all-volunteer service is worn out from multiple worthless tours in those other wars that continue whether we stay or not, and that the VA is years behind on legitimate medical claims. And if you want war, you’ll either need to raise taxes or borrow, or both.
Please enlighten us. Inquiring minds want to know.
