In a post and comments over at Payne Hollow (a worthy visit), a blogger named Wembley made a great remark after PH's argument over us in Iraq:
And yet, I suppose it would be unpatriotic of me and show a lack of support for our troops if I suggested that we really can't afford to wage war as solution for all the "bad guys" out there? Forget the whole morality question: It just isn't feasible.
We can't solve rogue regime problems by warring. If it's stretching us thin to deal with a wiped out nation like Iraq, what would it cost to deal with a North Korea? China? And so, if that is the case, wouldn't it be wise if we looked at other solutions?
Perhaps you should invest in a magnetic ribbon. Magnetic ribbons are the duct tape of american society.
That is to say, they look tacky and fix almost nothing.
