OUR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT:

Obama Likely to Leave a Legacy of Three Wars Instead of Ending Two (Greg Jaffe, The Washington Post )

President Obama's decision to expand the U.S. war effort in Iraq and Syria is a reflection of the conflicting pressures on a commander in chief who doubts that military force alone can end the conflicts in those countries, but who also feels compelled to act in the face of a humanitarian catastrophe and a growing threat to the United States.


Other than Ike (oddly and tragically), all presidents are Crusaders.
