U.S. War with Syria: Think Pyrrhic Victory at Best

by Bill Hughes

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” - George Santayana

Who can ever forget Dubya’s premature freedom rant on board the aircraft carrier, “USS Abraham Lincoln,” way back on May 1, 2003. The backdrop for this slice of national insanity was a huge sign, worthy of Germany’s notorious propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels. It read: “Mission Accomplished.” Dubya, a failure as president if there ever was one, falsely and recklessly declared to the world “an end to U.S. military operations in Iraq.”
