A long and well argued post from Andrew Sullivan, just up at The Dish. Again, subscribe, if only for a month. I’m still feeling my way through the issue and don’t think I agree with him, but he is making the best arguments against intervening in Syria in the best way.
From the new piece:
This is not about Obama. It’s about America, and America’s pressing needs at home. It’s also about re-balancing the presidency away from imperialism. If a president proposes a war and gets a vote in Congress and loses, then we have truly made a first, proud step in reining in the too-powerful executive branch and its intelligence, surveillance and military complex.
In other words, much good can still come from this.
