Even Foreign Ministers have insight:

Germany’s former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer makes a tacit link between America’s reticence and Germany’s flight from confrontation. He spoke to me of a “tragic moment in early 21st century American history when there had not only been a bad U.S. Iraqi intervention, but in 2013 a bad U.S. nonintervention in Syria.” The situation, Mr. Fischer told a German reporter, involved “an American president drawing a red line but letting Syria get away with crossing it.”
