Panacea of Diplomacy and Senator Borah

Dr. Santy, with help from Sigmund, Carl and Alfred, examines the left's panacea of engaging in diplomacy with Iran and Syria as the best, and indeed, only possible solution to the threats those countries represent. She believes, and I agree, that such diplomacy presents no realistic possibility of working and, indeed, would likely be counterproductive. As Dr. Santy explains:

Expecting diplomacy--that refuses to take into account the psychological or social realities of North Korea or Iran and the psychopathologies of its leaders--to alter those dysfunctional regimes is completely unrealistic. In this sense, the West is behaving similarly to the battered spouse who fervently believes that a spoonful of medicine down her own throat will change the abusive behaviors of her husband.

It won't.

Diplomacy by itself, that ignores external reality is destined not to work either.
. . . .
. . . I'm not sure that the [left] who are vocally for "peace in our time" will grasp what it is they are doing to enable the enemies of peace, and to make the liklihood of our being attacked much greater.

Please read her entire post. I could not agree more.

In Iran, and indeed, througout the world where Wahabbi Islam is practiced, we face an existential foe whom we will defeat or by whom we will be defeated. The disconnect with reality of the liberals today can best be shown by historical analogy to Senator William Borah of Idaho (pictured above) who, in 1939, after learning that Hitler had invaded Poland, said, "Lord, if only I could have talked with Hitler, all this might have been avoided."
