Stand!

Reader Dean emailed me today in response to a couple of recent articles I wrote regarding US policy in Syria.

Dean disagreed with the tone of my articles, stating a belief the US needs to "take a stand".

I back his "take a stand" suggestion 100% and offer this specific proposal.


The Stand

  • Admit the US is largely responsible for the huge mess in the Mideast.
  • Welcome Russia's help in solving it.
  • Welcome Iran's help in solving it.


Time to Self-Assess

There are many who believe the US should never apologize for anything. And that is precisely the attitude of the playground bully.

It is the weak-minded fools and the feeble hypocrites who demand everyone else to admit their mistakes while never accepting their own.

The US has one hell of a lot to apologize for in regards to the current Mideast crisis. Admitting that 50 years from now when those who created the crisis are long since dead will do no good. Admitting responsibility now will help.

There is no Chamberlain, nor modern day Hitler involved here. The harder demagogues try to play the Hitler/Chamberlain card, the sillier they look.

This is not about appeasement in any form. It's about a realistic self-assessment of who created the mess in order to move forward in the best manner.


Sly Stand


Signs of Weakness

It's not a sign of weakness to admit mistakes. Rather, it's a sign of weakness to not do so. That's my stand.
