Obama is picking his targets in Iraq and Syria while missing the point


By Andrew J. Bacevich – Destroying what Obama calls the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant won’t create an effective and legitimate Iraqi state.

It won’t restore the possibility of a democratic Egypt.

It won’t dissuade Saudi Arabia from funding jihadists.

It won’t pull Libya back from the brink of anarchy.

It won’t end the Syrian civil war.

It won’t bring peace and harmony to Somalia and Yemen.

It won’t persuade the Taliban to lay down their arms in Afghanistan.

It won’t end the perpetual crisis of Pakistan.

It certainly won’t resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. more> http://tinyurl.com/qyp4ya7
