Commentators Need Credibility

Dr. Frederick W. Kagan of the American Enterprise Institute joined with Michael O'Hanlon of the Brookings Institution to urge that our country think about "feasible military options in Pakistan." Seriously.

While this blog has not taken a position on any war, or on "feasible military options in Pakistan," we cannot help but note that, as far as we can tell, neither Dr. Kagan nor Dr. O'Hanlon has encouraged our national civilian political leadership to call upon eligible young Americans to consider military service, nor have they used their own bully pulpit, in the New York Times op-ed page, to do so themselves, directly.

Or, as Andrew Sullivan put it, with what troops? Hel-lo!
