The Obama Doctrine in Syria and Iran

Monday, February 27, 2012

After nine long years in Iraq and an ongoing, tenuous drawdown in Afghanistan, few politicians on either side of the aisle want to get involved in another war. These days, many inside and outside of the Beltway feel that the best way to deal with international conflicts is merely to provide the "seed money": given enough time and arms, the Syrians can oust Bashar al-Assad on their own; Israel can stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

The U.S. has closed their embassy in Syria, and has begun discussing imposing sanctions.
