Brussels Attack, Back To Iraq – What Would Reagan Do?

What does today’s bombing in Brussels have to do with ISIS in Iraq? Both feed the usual calls for military escalation in response to a problem created by military escalation in the first place. If ISIS is in Iraq as a result of the ill-fated 2003 US military action in Iraq, how can more military action in Iraq solve the problem? Likewise, if Europe’s slavish adherence to the Washington-led interventionist foreign policy line has resulted in blowback attacks, how does signing on to more of what the Beltway neocons have to offer going to remedy the problem? Perhaps, strangely enough, we can learn from what President Reagan did in a similar situation…

  1. though I agree that Belgium France and the UK have experienced blowback for following US interventions…the fact is that the recent attacks have been committed by natives to those countries! and to say that Europe is not vetting the people coming in is a little silly

    Interesting about Reagans stance though
