Spengler » The Trouble Is that Obama DOES Have a Strategy

Iraqi Sunni support for ISIS, including the participation of some of Saddam Hussein’s best officers, is a response to Iran’s de facto takeover of Iraq.

Imagine this sentence applied to a time ten years after the end of WWII:  “Including the participation of some of Tojo’s and Hitler’s best officers.”

That would have been nearly impossible, given that they were either dead, in prison, or terrified to even think about opposing the United States.

We used to know how to do that sort of thing.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
