Five Prerequisites for War Against ISIS

We appear to be moving ever closer toward a world war against the Islamic State. No sane person welcomes war. As we move forward, we must be vigilant -- to fairly allocate the burdens of who's called on to fight the war, to protect civil liberties, to protect innocent civilians abroad, to avoid hate and bigotry, and to fairly distribute the cost of paying for war. The war should be paid for the way we used to pay for wars -- with higher taxes, especially on the wealthy. We should seriously consider reinstating the draft. And we must do our part to take in a fair portion of Syrian refugees. These aren't just worthy aims. They are also the foundations of our nation's strength.
