I took the quiz, and got 9 out of 11, but since I disagree with you on Obama’s Syrian Policy, I give myself a 10 out of 11.

Four years ago, Nicholas Kristof, Hillary Clinton and the Joint Chiefs were right to argue for intervention on the side of the more moderate militants in Syria, and Obama was probably wrong not to go along, but that is history, hindsight, and unprovable.
Today, Obama does have a sophisticated policy, to let the regional players lead, and help guide them, but not become the trillion dollar sucker at the crap table, which we have done to the tune of 3,4, or 5 trillion dollars, depending on who you are reading.

Meanwhile, we need to rebuild Detroit and other fallen manufacturing centers in the US. Iraq and Afghanistan are proof that we do not have the skill or wealth or knowledge to rebuild these medieval societies in our our own modern, western image.
