The Wrong Man for the Job

THE WRONG MAN FOR THE JOB….Michael Kinsley’s rumination yesterday about the history of Western intervention in Iran was an oddly rambling affair, but the man does have a way with words:

When the United States should use its military strength to achieve worthy goals abroad is an important question. But based on [our record in Iraq and Afghanistan], it seems a bit theoretical. It’s like asking whether Donald Trump should use his superpowers to cure AIDS. Or what George W. Bush should say when he wins the Nobel Prize in physics. A more pressing question is: Can’t anyone here play this game?

Nope. George Bush : Fixing National Security Problems :: Herbert Hoover : Fixing National Depressions.
