“I don’t oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.” – Barack Obama, 2002

So, let’s get this straight:

  • War based on deliberately misleading intelligence in order to advance half-baked theories of democratization = dumb, rash
  • War based on making good on an ill-advised threat in order to advance half-baked theories of deterrence, but with the promise that it will be too ineffective to matter = neither dumb nor rash

And to think that some of us voted for Obama over Clinton because we were tired of wading into other countries’ internal affairs. Ah, well.
