Don’t have to bomb Syria to remain credible

Credibility in foreign policy matters, but the view that the United States has to bomb Syria to remain credible is overblown, Peggy Noonan wrote in the Wall Street Journal. “We are, and everyone knows we are, the most militarily powerful and technologically able nation on Earth,” she wrote. “And at the end of the day America is America. We don’t have to bow to the claim that if we don’t attack Syria we are over as a great power.”
