Daily Kos Kops Out:
Me? I grew up in a war zone. And there was one clear lesson I learned -- there will never be peace unless both sides get tired of the fighting and start seeking an alternative.Not okay, Kos. The whole raison d'etre for your blog is about keeping the political bastards honest. Do you really think this is the policy that the USA should pursue: just sit back and watch as US-made missiles slam into residential areas across the Middle East?
It's clear that in the Middle East, no one is sick of the fighting. They have centuries of grudges to resolve, and will continue fighting until they can get over them. And considering that they obviously have no interest in "getting over them", we're stuck with a war that will not end in any forseable future. It doesn't matter what we bloggers say. It doesn't matter what the President of the United States says. Or the United Nations. Or the usual bloviating gasbag pundits.
When two sides are this dead-set on killing each other, very little can get in the way.
And I, for one, sure as heck have no desire to get sucked into that no-win situation. I just hope that war-fatigue sets in at some point.
Is that really a policy position you think the Democrats should adopt? If not, tell us what they should do.
And if you are just afraid to say anything because it might come back at you, even - gasp! - cost you a few thousand hits a week, well, then you are allowing fear of criticism to dictate your own policies. And isn't that what you always criticize the Democrats for doing? Welcome to the Party, Kos.
If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
