I don't know why people feel safer with trigger happy republicans in office running our foreign affairs. In my opinion, they're part of the problem. I would take an appeaser over an aggressor any day. We need ot look at win/win situations like we teach our kids. We are intelligent and civilized human beings and should act like it. We need ot accept our differences and learn to negotiate. If you think the best way to protect us is by bombing others then why criticize the gangs in LA?
If you need a good example of aggressors, look at the Israeli/Palistinian conflict. It's a vicious circle of terror that will never end. Israel takes their lead from the US. So far, it's gotten them no where.
Should we beat on people that are less powerful then us and negotiate with those we consider a "real threat"?
