Our enemies despise weakness in us at least as much as they hate who we are. And there is no lack of weakness to despise in our foreign policy in recent weeks. I am far from confident that al Qaeda, et. al., will lay low tomorrow just because of Syria and related events.
Would not bet on that at all.
