What would success actually look like? What makes us think that we can prevent the deep conflicts afflicting that part of the world from resurfacing?—Susan H. in Oakland, CA
How will the United States fund this new military offensive? How much will it cost? Who will suffer as a result? Is anyone in the White House/Congress proposing alternatives to military force?—Roger S. in Bridgeport, CT
What is the defined scope and extent of our mission from a military, economic, political involvement? What is our criteria for determining the success of our mission involvement?
