    What does Syria have to do with that?

    We werent talking about Syria specifically. Although since they are state sponsor of terrorism against the US, we should have done something a long time ago.

    Then that was one dumb ass goal.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That was done in 2006. There was no need to stay after that, and soon it will be under Islamic rule. It will be the same in Afghanistan. That's the similarity. Many Americans died between 2006 and now for no good reason.

    Both governments should have been overthrown and then left alone to organize themselves with fewer influences from the stone age.. They can keep terrorizing, and being overthrown if necessary, until they get it right.

    "Leading from behind" means you'll always finish no better than second.

    I can't tell if I am okay with this, or just having Vietnam/ Iraq syndrome.

    Irrelevant to the debate we were having about whether the US military is effective at offense and won the war. Pay attention.
