Dick Mountjoy on War & Peace
What should America do? We should begin with peaceful means, but not with the European style diplomacy Feinstein admires so much. If we want "tough diplomacy" we won't find it in Europe.
As usual, the outlook is no better at the United Nations. The best we can expect the Security Council to do is "a little bit defuse the situation." We need to do a lot more than that but while diplomats talk about "building coalitions," everyone sits around, doing nothing and secretly hoping that America will solve the problem on its own.
The only kind of diplomacy that will get the attention of Iran's fanatical leaders is diplomacy backed up by a quiet but plausible threat of the use of force.
For Feinstein and her friends on the radical left, what's good for the American people is bad for them. They believe they can only win the next election if America loses this war - a war that Feinstein authorized by her vote in 2002. Fortunately, for the American people and the Iraqi people, George Bush doesn't take advice - about his Secretary of Defense or anything else - from Feinstein and Friends. He will not surrender. We will win this war.
