Just a thought… here’s a peace tactic: America could say to its enemies: ‘We understand your pain. We understand why you feel the need to attack. We understand that we made you our enemies and then behaved appallingly towards you because our culture believes it’s right to be evil to our enemies (yes, RIGHT! I know… it’s astonishing, but there you are… that’s just our way… ain’t it quaint?!). We understand that your response, in your mood of outrage and fear, is perfectly logical. We will endeavour to change our ways so we no longer give you cause to be angry with us.’
Some hope, eh?
