Thank God that President Obama is keeping his cool and treading carefully in the volatile situation in the Middle East.
Sure, it would make Americans feel important to act the redneck, raise a big stick and boast about our power, as Mitt Romney seems to advocate.
But what might that lead to? Remember Russia and China, who are not our friends right now? They have nuclear bombs. too, as do many other countries.
Remember that the next war very well might be a nuclear war. Is that what the Republicans want? If we can't win the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, how could we win a world war?
For our own sake and to save our own necks, throwing a match into the conflagration right now would not be very smart.
