Afghanistan is aflame because the U.S. military accidentally burned the Qur’an. Syria is teetering on the edge of civil war.

Iran is moving inexorably toward acquiring nuclear weapons while threatening to shut down the Strait of Hormuz.

I’m just glad the president can see where the real threat to America lies.
