Time: "Is It Time To Invade Burma?"

Remarkable, isn't it? Give the left a purely humanitarian mission, untainted by any possibility of the US advancing its own security interests, and they're ready to expend all the blood and treasure in the world in a unilateral war of choice.

There's no doubt that we have the moral right to invade Burma. There's little doubt that, given enough soldiers (and deaths), we could do some good there.

But isn't it awfully funny the left is forever undermining the wars we're actually fighting and agitating to start wars which are not in our clear national interest and hence almost certainly won't fight?

If the left wants a humanitarian crusade -- how about getting on board with the two wars we're already engaged in and have very nearly won entirely?

Or does the fact that America might actually be benefited from such victories make them too costly to even contemplate?

Thanks to LCDR Joe. (Last name omitted.)
