This dog’s breakfast of random objectives, even if achieved, would do little or nothing to make the U.S. stronger or safer or to advance American ideals. It is not attached to a serious diagnosis of threats and opportunities, strengths and weaknesses, or adversary and allied incentives. None of the four objectives materially reinforces another, nor do they work together to accomplish a coherent foreign-policy goal.
Meanwhile, real problems and threats off of our priority list languish and get worse.

Seriously, could we bust a gut with a little sense of urgency even on our new war against ISIL in Iraq?
