It comforts me to know that Obama by changing policy with regards to Assad is admitting that I was right all along, and he and Bush were very wrong all along.
Sometimes I say to myself, you might be wrong the Federal Government administrators mostly got into Yale and Harvard (Yale and Harvard would have laughed at my application had I applied), and they have access to more info than me so maybe I am wrong and they are right, but this change in policy clearly admits that they were wrong and I was right!
So how can such intelligent people be so obviously wrong and I be right? One theory is that the supper intelligent/great students like that tend to live in a bubble are not realty to common people and so loose touch with reality.
Perhaps it and Bush's policy in the Middle-eat are the result of cultural and genetic blank slatism run amok. One reason nice people cling to blank slatism is because admission of cultural and genetic group differences could be very bad in the wrong populist hands.
Also Politicians are experts in getting elected not in Governing.
At least the Obama administration is showing humility by changing policy. I like Obama personally he seems to be a better person than most politicians and he has shown more military restraint than most presidents which I think is good. I disagree with him on most policy though.
