"Let me have one area of disagreement with the secretary," asked Sanders. "I think she said something like the bulk of the responsibility [for ISIS] is not ours. Well, in fact, I would argue that the disastrous invasion of Iraq, something that I strongly opposed, has unraveled the region completely and led to the rise of al Qaeda and to ISIS."
"Now, in fact, what we have got to do -- and I think there is widespread agreement here -- is the United States cannot do it alone," he continued. "What we need to do is lead an international coalition which includes very significantly the Muslim nations in that region who are going to have to fight and defend their way of life."
I don't think that there can be any disagreement that George W. Bush broke the Middle East, and that the next President of the United States is going to be called upon to help fix it.
The sooner Hillary Clinton accepts that fact the better it will be for all of us.
And more than that the next President is going to have to realize that unmanned drone attacks raining down death in mainly Muslim communities is ultimately going to do more harm than good.
You cannot kill an idea with a missile, but you can work to change that idea into something willing to compromise.
