No strikes unless there is a clear strategy

Reader comment on item: Arguing against "Limited" Strikes on the Assad Regime

Submitted by Stas (Poland), Aug 18, 2013 at 08:43

There is no good reason to strike at Assad unless there is a clear strategy to achieve a change in the regime. All of this bluster is just making the USA look weak and indecisive and doing much more harm to the future relations/confrontations with Iran and Russia. It is an embarassment and I hope that congress puts the kabosh on this silliness and we can have it out of the news cycle.

As for what will happen as a consequence of Obama's weakness, that is entirely a different problem and we will reap its fallout down the line.
