Reagan spent trillions of dollars we didn't have on expanding our military, which some argue led to the overspending and eventual downfall of the Soviet Union. Many give Reagan credit for "winning" the Cold War. Will history give President Obama similar credit for whatever this is in the Middle East? Will history point to GWB's response to 9/11 in Afghanistan, and invasion and occupation of Iraq as the cause? So, is what's happening going to be viewed by posterity as a good or bad thing, and who's going to get the credit or the blame?
