    Had the U.S. intervened forcefully at the very beginning, there would have been very limited jihadist intervention or demand for advanced weapons.

    Red on red. What’s the problem?

    • Andrew Allison

      The problem is that our utterly inept foreign policy is resulting in not just the training of jihadists from all over the world but also causing them to be supplied with advanced weapons. Sleep well.

        They’re killing each other, not us. The utterly inept foreign policy may have tripped into success. Like drunken men and children.

          I fear that you missed my point, namely that the international jihadists will inevitably move on to other targets with bigger and better weapons.

    Bush’s critics over the Iraq war claimed that it could destabilize the entire Middle East. They were right and now that they are in office they seem to still be intent on proving their point.
