Will America Suffer a “Brain Drain”?

America benefited greatly from the emigration of European Jews like Ludwig von Mises and Albert Einstein during the dark days of the 1930s and 1940s in what has been called the European “brain drain.”  Recent news reports of how all the major Jewish-American lobbying organizations, led by AIPAC, the Anti-Defamation League, etc.  are trying to move heaven and earth to get the U.S. government to invade Syria suggest that there could be a reverse brain drain in the works

Let me explain.   I assume that Abe Foxman, the Kristol family, and their pro-war compatriots are not rank hypocrites and are doing everything they can to send all of their children and grandchildren, male and female, to Syria to join with our new al Qaeda rebel “allies” to help overthrow the Assad regime.  Unfortunatly, this will create a kind of reverse brain drain to the detriment of America.

Of course, I could be wrong.  Foxman et al may well be rank hypocrites who want other peoples’ children to join with al Qaeda in Syria to overthrow the government there while their own children and grandchildren remain, like themselves, safe and sound thousands of miles from any war.
