  1. How about this: we get out of the Nation-Building business altogether, unless it is our nation. There are times when it is reasonable to destroy an existing government (certainly, we as a planet would have come to a lot less grief had we had a W in charge over in Europe in the ’30s, instead of the appeasers that were in place), but this is in fact a last-ditch thing, when absolutely nothing else will suffice.
    I wasn’t all that thrilled about what happened in the former Yugoslavia, nor what happened in Somalia before. I think that this is one area where we ignore the Founding Fathers at our peril.

  2. Nope… still falls into the “really really stupid” category. Or, the “heart was in the right place, but their head was implanted firmly between their cheeks…” category.

  4. Glide625 – are you suggesting that our elected officials (regardless of which branch of the government they are serving in) be required to write that sentence on the blockboard until it sinks in?
