    From the article:

    Why should we expect that we can buy fanatics or their good behavior with aid and trade? It doesn't work, whether dealing with children who misbehave or adults. There are standards of civilized behavior. I know them. You know them. I would agree only that we should watch them closely and reward/punish appropriately.

    What say you, Ken? Buy off these animals with the candy of aid and trade or watch them like hawks?

    Joe,

    I agree.

    But, you know, that sounds kinda, gasp, neo-conservative, don't you think?

    Ken,

    Don't know yet. I am still gathering info from various perspectives on this situation, ftr.

    Does that include the neo-con perspective, Ken? How "varied" are the perspectives you're willing to gather?

    That is ok as I pretty much have very little respect for either one of them when it comes to foreign policy and their morally bankrupt and non-Biblical manner of crossing to the other side of the road into their safety zones of non-interventionism.

    Joseph Botwinick :D

    safety zones

    I think of it more as a cocoon. Or blinders.
