    But not the left.
    And when did the US have the moral high ground? Sounds like 'rah rah America' cheer leading.

    Ok, what should we have done with regards to Syria, attack yet another country that hasn't harmed us?

    It's not like our foreign policy toward those countries has had the intended effect. Ayatollahs and Castro are still in power. Meanwhile we maintained relations with the USSR and the whole thing fell apart. We've maintained relations with China and that has paid dividends.

    It just seems that not talking to someone doesn't change their way of doing things.

    Funny that at Mandela's funeral, Obama criticized other leaders that don't tolerate dissent, with a straight face, too!

    Haiti, Mali, Nicaragua and others that offer less than Cuba but with whose crazy governments we accept. Not everything is about money and trade.

    Just because you don't like cigars is not enough reason to deprive your fellow cigar-chomping Americans. Plus, the Cuban resorts are affordable, even for that low income family who wants a break.

    I've felt this way for decades. But "your way" is the path we have chosen.

    So it goes.

    We could have started by NOT flexing, and then immediately flinching like Obama did. All Obama did was diminish our credibility, guarantee a continued Assad regime, and increase Russian influence in the region (especially to Iran, Syria, and Lebanon).

    Well, they don't crane out and down like that. This is not a picture of Obama:

    Was it about regime change or controlling the evil?
