    @Mark B:
    "We'll be paying for his cowboy view of the world for a long time."

    I guess the 'cowboy' mentality must be catchy. Obama has been in the White House for almost five years and we're still in Iraq and Afghanistan. And this, despite his campaign promise to get us out. Go figure.

    Oh, for the days of GWB, who wasn't wimpy, brother. He was decisive! Too bad he was also wrong. We'll be paying for his cowboy view of the world for a long time.

    Krauthammer is enthralled with Israel's handling of Assad. He wishes Obama would follow their example. Krauthammer is definitely advocating attacking Syria but on a much grander scale. He thinks Obama is ambivalent and confused, not to mention wimpy. Read the article again.

    I must have read a different commentary than you because I don't understand your post. Mr Krauthammer isn't advocating for conflict in Syria, he is stating the case against it. Before we even consider doing anything, we need to look at the reasons why Pres Obama has taken the actions he has.......just what Mr Krauthammer is saying.....

    @ antodav. A neocon accusing another neocon for being a neocon. How ridiculous!

    Good grief. Krauthammer's main problem appears to be that the progress for the war in Syria isn't happening fast enough. No consideration whatsoever of whether or not it is even in U.S. national interests for us to go there at all or about whether the side we're choosing is even the right one. Typical neocon.
