I don't mind going to war, but if one goes to war, it requires a commitment to see the cause through. The Democrats are simply naive about the world and Pres. Obama's incoherent foreign policy reflects that. So, American troops appear to have sacrificed in Iraq to basically hand it over to Iran or fundamentalist Muslims. The Democrats today are not of the same ilk as Roosevelt or Truman in terms of foreign policy. Today's Democrats would have happily handed the world over to the Nazis or the communists. They have no commitment to defending freedom or even America's own interests. When America draws back from the world, it becomes a more dangerous place because every dictator and ill-intended leader in the world becomes emboldened and decides they can do as they please. In that sense, Pres. Obama's legacy will be leaving the world a more dangerous place. Pres. Obama's jetting around to golf courses this weekend while the situation blows up in Iraq is deplorable. There is far more decisive leadership in a bankrupted Kiev than in this White House.
