    why don't they do something?  Are we all just hoping it will go away?

      Seriously.

      How many people really have had to get out of their own jams?

      Kids blame the teacher or the bus driver, parents blame the boss or the "other guy," politicians blame the other party. Then, somebody does something to get the other off the hook.

      Or, more than likely, it's the old fingers in the ear singing la-la-la.

      To call the Commander in Chief detached from reality would be an insult to paranoid schizophrenics everywhere. --billmon

        But...why is everyone else letting this happen? I'm not saying Russia or China should be launching a pre-emptive war against us (FSM no!), but there are sanctions that could be put in place, there are public pressures that could be brought to bear...it's never a good idea to have an imperialist fundamentalist regime in charge of WMDs, but it's downright suicidal when that regime is Dominionist. They want an apocalypse.
