In Fairness, At Least He Didn’t Mention Munich


There’s not much to say about the mind-numbing “war is always the answer, and if that doesn’t work more war. And talking tough. And plenty of bombs” predictability of Krauthammer’s demand that Obama do…something in the Ukraine, preferably involving killing lots of people for purposes that will be made clear later. But I had to extract this gem:

What Obama doesn’t seem to understand is that American inaction creates a vacuum. His evacuation from Iraq consigned that country to Iranian hegemony…

It’s the strangest thing. At some point a little more than 10 years ago, the Iraqi state just kind of spontaneously disintegrated, creating a power vacuum that strongly advantaged Iranian interests. I blame Barack Obama! Anyway, the lesson here is the inevitable effectiveness of the application of American military force at achieving strategic and humanitarian goals alike.
