Shorter Professor Bainbridge

Fearless leader is not fearless enough

Here’s a snippet:

Public support for the war is sliding. We’re not using a fraction of our military potential, and there seems to be no clear viable long-term goal or exit strategy. {Update: On the issue of whether we’re using our full military potential, Victor Davis Hanson observes: “throughout this conflict the United States has been apprehensive that it was becoming too brutal in its effort even as the Islamic fascists were convinced that we were too weak to fight such a war.”}

The second problem is that the fly paper strategy seems to be radicalizing our foes even more. For every fly that gets caught, it seems as though 10 more spring up. This should hardly come as a surprise to anybody who has watched Israel pursue military solutions to its terrorist problems, after all. Does anybody really think Israel’s military actions have left Hezbollah or Hamas with fewer foot soldiers? To the contrary, the London bombing suggests to me that it is only a matter of time before the jihadists strike in the US again, even though our troops remain hung out as fly paper in the Augean Stables of Iraq.

Oddly enough, if you read Bainbridge’s entire post you will see him use some of the same arguments that the anti-war people were using, oh, about three years ago. Couple that with Chuck Hagel’s comments and it looks like “ees beeg trouble for Moose and Squirrel“.
