        but I know what you mean. I was thinking recently about a great Canadian, Lester B. Pearson who brokered a deal during the Suez crisis that prevented a war.

        from Wiki

        Lester Bowles "Mike" Pearson, PC, OM, CC, OBE (23 April 1897 – 27 December 1972) was a Canadian professor, historian, civil servant, statesman, diplomat, soldier, and politician, who won the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1957 for organizing the United Nations Emergency Force to resolve the Suez Canal Crisis.
        and today, how low we have come in foreign policy that our government sanctions a scorched earth policy in Gaza. I hang my head.
