The racing in SF re the America’s Cup has shown us that sometimes one needs to play a trump card and take a break. It was looking pretty ominous for Oracle after NZ walloped them in the first race of the day. Most sensibly, Oracle used their one chance to take a break and stake stock of their situation.
Obama should also follow this example and think seriously before launching into an attack on Syria. I am not saying that he should not act, but he must do so with the blessing of the UIN and be part of the resolution to the problem that is Syria, not blast head on in without any real knowledge of what the result will be.
Oracle has a few days to reflect, rebuild and try something new. Maybe there is a message there, Mr Obama!
