The Obama Fan Club Rests Safe From Reality
I included the Youtube scene from the Movie Cloverfield for reasons other than the fact that I truly enjoy popping that DVD into my machine during a long flight. It also gives us a nice analogy to how America’s current Democratic Party reelection campaign of ineffective and symbolic airstrikes against ISIS has actually worked so far in suppressing the latest incarnation of Middle Eastern menace.

I take the Vietnam analogy/precedent seriously. But I also take seriously how one of those uncontrollable events was Nixon’s replacement by Ford. And I take even more seriously the Iranian nuclear program and Iran’s apparent foot-dragging. Will they be deterred by Obama? Did they notice how he called for Bashar al-Assad to go, but left it at that?
