What a strange game!

Dear Mr. President,
Let's keep this simple.  War is a strange game; the only winning move is not to play.  This lesson should be clear to you by now.  The USA did not win in Iraq; it has not won in Afghanistan.  And now you have even less clear goals in dealing with Syria.  So let's just resist the terrible temptation to play with all those military toys no matter what the toy-makers and the people who have these toys say.  Understand that they like to make things go boom; it's good for their bidness you know.  So take in an old movie, WarGames (1983) comes to mind.  And then we'll see if you can learn.
