Overseas, we appear to be moving from the War on Terror toward a large-scale conventional war on a people against whom we bear no grudge. They are badly led, to be sure, and concerted international pressure to force reforms is in order, even the threat of military action.
But we must not allow ourselves to be unilaterally plunged into a war whose grounds are unsupported by hard – and public – evidence and that has not been declared by Congress. And if we do go to war, we must have clearly defined goals and a well articulated exit strategy. Nobody must be left behind.
Still makes sense to me.
