The Economist Mocks Obama’s Attack on Syria

Judging by the latest Economist cover, its editors aren’t feeling especially optimistic about President Obama’s decision to launch air strikes in Syria.

As a president, the last former president you want to be associated with is George W. Bush. This is the same flight suit Bush wore to announce that the Iraq war was a raging success, while that depressingly ironic banner that read “Mission Accomplished” hung in the background.

Let’s hope things go better for us (and Obama) than they did for Bush.
