Monday Morning Questions

1. Do drones make it too easy for U.S. policy makers to go to war?

2. Why do some of the strongest U.S. supporters of Israel pair their animosity toward Iran with a soft spot for Saudi Arabia? I understand the enemy-of-my-enemy thing, but what of the way in which oil money has underwritten the spread of radical, violent strands of Islamic fundamentalism?

3a. What should the Obama Administration do about Syria? How should current U.S. policy change in light of the brutal crack-down we're seeing?

3b. How is Syria different than Libya?
