The American invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were costly failures. A military intervention in Syria would be a costly failure, too. America cannot save the world from every atrocity, and we cannot force our morality onto other nations, either. Obama needs to end these costly wars and get our financial house in order. If not, there will be no America to hold up as an example for other nations to follow.
