President Obama’s speech make this clear to anyone paying attention. As does his pop in the polls following the decision to expand our wars.
- The wars are not those of our ruling elites.
- Our wars are not our those of our military.
- Americans like our wars.
- Their appeal crosses party lines.
- We’re almost indifferent to the supporting reasons, as seen in their flimsy ever-changing nature.
- The wars’ benefits might be imaginary. The costs ruinous.
- That’s the core reality we must address.
