Cage The Hawks

The following lines appeared in a NY Times article, Hawks Steering Debate on How to Take on Iran - “It’s not about Israel,” said Representative Eric Cantor, Republican of Virginia, the House majority leader and a key Congressional ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel" .   Netanyahu has allies in Congress?  Do these allies represent Israel as well as their constituents? Absurd! Cantor is not alone in wanting Obama to unleash another war in the Mideast. There is no way we should get entangled in yet another war.  Frankly, I doubt that we are prepared to win a war. If the Hawks have their way, we can kiss our standing as an economic powerhouse and a super power goodbye. If Obama doesn't cage the Hawks I'll be sorely disappointed, November election or not. If he does not accelerate an exit from Afghanistan, it will be a big mistake.
