Putin doing the U.S. a favor in Syria!

Putin isn't humiliating Obama in Syria. He's doing the U.S. a favor.
By Damon Linker

Before you knew it, we'd won the Cold War and were launched into the Unipolar Moment, with America standing astride the globe like a colossus, unchallenged in its supremacy. Sure, we had 9/11 and a couple of sloppy small wars in some out-of-the-way places. But everything was humming along just fine until…

Barack Obama — the president who made a treasonous choice to pursue American decline.

First he cut and ran in Iraq. Then he set us up to do the same in Afghanistan. Along the way, we failed to respond to Bashar al-Assad's aggression against his own people in Syria. We made a similar mistake in Libya, going in with force for a short time but then failing to back it up and take charge. Our response to Putin's treachery in Ukraine was more of the same. Meanwhile, we engaged in unforced capitulation to dictators in Havana and Tehran while treating the elected leader of the Middle East's only representative democracy like a pariah.

And the predictable result? Putin's been empowered, our allies feel betrayed, the Islamic State is on the march across Iraq, and the Taliban look poised to make a serious push to challenge the authority of the Afghan government.
