    Finally, someone gets it right. But here’s my take, after studying the Arabic language, Arab culture, and Arab politics for 27 years, and serving in U.S. embassies in the Muddle East for 10 years: do nothing. It’s not our fight, not something we can win. We don’t even know what winning means in the M.E.

    But either way, those viscerally opposed to Obama will take it as his failure, as that is their aim in all circumstances. Personally, I think, with drybones, that doing nothing will result in less damage that doing something, but that’s just a guess on my part.

    Drybones: thanks for stating the simple truth, but don’t limit it to “Arabs”, as you know full well other segments of that tribe, and other tribals, like Persians, Pashtun, etc going further east will also not respond to force from the west, as they never have.

    @dtroutma: the weight of evidence is on your side, but I felt that I had to stay quite strictly to those people with whom I have direct experience.

    Really? Not a fan of “Obozo”; but in this circumstance I wholeheartedly approve of his caution and reluctance. This cartoon has it perfectly. Do something or do nothing and they both stink.
