  •  When others adopt the W/Cheney approach... (2+ / 0-)

    it doesn't work out so well for us.  In this instance, it's really working out poorly for our kids.

    Cheneyism is premised on the core belief that the US can dictate terms of the resolution of any international issue.  To borrow a pet phrase of W's, dictating terms to everyone else is great when you're the dicatator.  The problem arises when others get to do the dictating.

    This shoe does not fit so well when it's on the other foot.  While denying our interdependency w/ other nations may be an emotionally satisfying proposition in the near term, it is really a losing proposition in the long term.  I really hope that my kids don't learn the hard way how losing of a proposition it is.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I see things that never were and ask why not?
