Back from the edge of the abyss, but still tottering

The indefatigable Drew Bowling taking on American foreign policy at length on Catholic Vote is very much worth a read. Please do give it more than a few minutes of your time; he may wax a bit caustic at points, but his position is well-argued and eminently reasonable. And he is ultimately right: our current Administration confuses telegraphed threats of attack which it does not have the political capital or the support to back up with a show of strength. And the President’s loyal cadres lining up to heap praise upon his wisdom in preventing a war notwithstanding, if very few Americans were fooled by the display, imagine how incredulous a foreign observer must be now watching this from afar!

Please do read the entire thing. Believe me, it is well worth your time!
