Is the Syrian refugee crisis Obama's fault? He can no, of course. But is it the result of the United States not playing a leadership role in the Middle East? Is it related to squandering the stabilization we had achieved in Iraq post surge? Or, can we also blame this on Bush?
We are damned if we do, damned if we don't in the Middle East and the Liberals who were vehemently against the Iraq war didn't acknowledge this point. Now, we see the cost of inaction.
