I am listening to Michael Medvad who has a lady on who actually made the statement that the US should have fought the communist threat by diplomacy instead of the wars we fought.
Folks this is why I am not a liberal and why I am not a war protester.
Diplomacy and compromise only works if the party you are engaging in diplomacy with has a similar goal as you. A good example of this is when governments compromise in order to keep peace.
The IMPORTANT THING is BOTH SIDES HAVE TO WANT PEACE.
Liberals (and the war protesters) assume the other side only wants peace and to live in harmony. Their own little place to be happy in.
The truth I have learned in life, is despite what we like to think, there are people who DO NOT WANT PEACE!
Look at Hitler. Look at Oslo. Look at Saddam. (Do you think he wanted peace?)
