Syria and Iraq

My new Bloomberg View column is up.

[O]pponents of U.S. military action are warning that it could turn out to be the needless disaster that most people take the Iraq War to have been. That’s unfair. Kerry’s lengthy defense notwithstanding, a military campaign in Syria has a lot less going for it than the invasion of Iraq did.

Whole thing here.
