One of the consequences of falling for the trap in the Middle East of chasing thousands of replaceable ghost terrorists for decades: The enemy studies your every move.

President Obama’s decision two years ago to reduce the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. military and defense policies is being challenged by Russia’s large-scale buildup of nuclear forces, along with Moscow’s revised nuclear doctrine and recent threats to use the weapons.
