As much as I hate to comment on things that are pointless I will stoop, once again...
Anytime you try to stand against an IDEAL you will be hated by "liberals." I use that term residents as I think labels only make things worse but the situation is truly just that! Liberals are idealist, idealism is GREAT unfortunately its not realistic! The idealist says "if we could just talk to these people I'm sure they would understand..." The REALITY is that nothing we say can convince them!
We either need to;
- Meet violence with UNIMAGINABLE violence. Kill one of ours, we kill a thousand of yours. (it's a losing strategy in the long term but works in the short)
- Or just pull out and let the crazies go at it!
The problem is that NEITHER solution will please the "liberals" if we do 1 the complaints are obvious. If we do 2 then we should be doing more... There IS no win here! I mean seriously what could Bush do to get people like Simon to approve of them? THERE IS NOTHING!
I say pull out and let the winners whine!
