Ay any rate, the next President will have a mess to clean up. We, the US, have put ourselves into a strategic trap.
Pakistan is destabilized.
There is no counter force to an aggresive Iran.
Our Al Queda adversaries are out of our military reach.
We have not only failed to win hearts and minds in the Muslim world, but have created a new generation of enemies with fresh reason to hate.
We have greatly damaged the morale and prestige of our military.
We have squandered large amounts of money needed to prepare ourselves for long term threats.
We have no candidates who are talking about the steps needed to defang radical Islamic Fundalmentalism much less face the realities of a multipolar global power structure.
The only question?
Who can stick their head the furthest up their ass? Democrat or Republican?
I'd call it a tie for last place.
