Elliott Abrams, in the best analysis so far: “The Obama years of passivity are truly over. Allies and friends will be cheered, while enemies will realize times have changed…. Of course this was an easy lift militarily: a few dozen missiles, one air base as a target. Yet our previous president refused to do it; this one acted…. without demanding a UN Security Council meeting or congressional vote…. Henceforth when he speaks of American conditions and demands, interests and desires, more attention will be paid.”
