Memorial Day.

The Economist.

And who in their right mind would engage US troops in Syria? Attack Iran, yesterday as some urge? Get any deeper into the Libya quagmire? Or half-a-world away, the Ukraine? It would be worse than the Iraq and Afghanistan fiasco efforts of Cheney and the neocons, those saying there is now but a single superpower, so take military advantage of it; cash in those chips. The fewer troops put in harms way ending with a premature death, the smaller the memorial need be, and the better that is for our people, our economy, the world. War is Hell, so why charge hellbent into frays of intrigue and questionable merit. As some counsel, still, unmindful even after recent lessons of limitations of war as policy, after Vietnam.
