Rich: I hate to inject a note of cynicism here, but I nearly choked on my

coffee reading these words of yours: “I was talking to a military expert

yesterday about Iraq. He said there are couple elements to succeeding in our

counterinsurgency efforts: 1) Sealing off the borders, which means insisting

on Syria’s help doing so….” Er, Rich, sealing off desert borders is a

thing that the present-day U.S.A. is… not sensationally good at.
