Read Stuff, You Should

Happy Birthday to Siobhan Fahey, 55.

And good stuff:

1. Scott Lemieux on the presidency.

2. Good points by Kevin Drum about Obama and Syria.

3. And Dan Larison on "isolationism." Yeah; there ain't much, at least among politicians (not to mention foreign policy professionals).

  1. Re Kevin Drum: Obama did as promised in the 2008 campaign on Afghanistan and drone strikes. He dragged his feet on Libya and did virtually nothing for years on Syria. Only on chemical weapons did he move (too) fast, and only after this latest much clearer use than previous times.

    He's within the post-Cold War mainstream on military use but far more reluctant than say the neocons.
