Things Fall Apart …

Back in July, we at Come Home America pointed out a number of reasons why US intervention in Syria was a really, really bad idea.

Only half a year later, the situation has come down to conventional homilies on  “who lost Syria?”

The answer is, nobody lost Syria — it was never America’s to lose.

What the US lost in Syria was just a little more of its ever-dwindling fund of international good will. Hopefully at home we can make up that loss with a little less trust in interventionist foreign policies and the unwise augmentations of executive power those policies tend to produce.
