I agree with most of his points.I'm not so sure about bin laden.Dragging him through the U.S. detention system would have probably been a bigger recruiting spur than his death.

Think of all the money we will save when our soldiers carry handcuffs instead of tanks.

Brilliant.

We have changed our attitudes greatly in 70 yrs. In 1941, 2300 American lives were worth our participation in a world war that killed millions.
In 2001, 3000 American lives were worth a half assed military attempt to scare off our enemy.
History shows that If you feel that being attacked deserves a military response, you better go all the way and commit everything you have to completely eradicate your enemy. Otherwise you just muck up everything and your enemies increase.
This was a conflict that once engaged, was stupidly prosecuted by people who had no clear goals and no clear understanding of our enemy. Now we have a mess that in order to straighten it out, we may get drawn into another global war that will possibly kill billions.

No - can't buy into that one - the hornets nest had been stamped on long before Obama was sent in with pesticides and a broom

Bush had crushed the insurgency and violence in the country was at an all time low. Then Obummer the great decided to withdraw all troops and guess what filled the power vacuum? Issis. Obummer also caved to Iran which resulted in guess what? Expanded terrorism in other parts of the region supported by Iran. Now, guess what ? Russian military forces in Syria to prop up Assad who should have been deposed a couple of years ago. Remember the dumb a** in chiefs line in the sand?
