Daniel Greenfield has an excellent post today on our current plan to war with Syria. His post compares an old essay by Orwell titled "Shooting an Elephant" and Obama's approach to Syria. Personally, I believe he is too kind to Obama in this post, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if Obama suddenly declared himself to be a full member of the Muslim Brotherhood, but the comparison to Orwell's essay is brilliant. Do yourself a favor and read both.
Foolish Western foreign policy was documented by Orwell in that insightful essay over 80 years ago, during Fall of 1936. Less than 5 years later, World War 2 began. It sure feels like we're now on the threshold of another world war.
