Biden’s Worst Line of the Night: “War Should Always Be the Absolute Last Resort”

Or, as someone put it on a friend’s Facebook page: “There is ALWAYS another option” rather than war.

Yes, Mr. Biden, there are always options for avoiding war.  Sometimes there are even GOOD options.  But in various circumstances, options other than war may include surrender, appeasement, indifference, self-delusion or betrayal. War most certainly should never be the FIRST resort, but it’s dangerous and imprudent to think of it as a LAST resort.

  1. Wow, this has been a juicy week, you’re pretty active. Let’s take Syria and Iran. If you go boots-on-the-ground in Syria, it’s like Iraq: you break a secular government and most likely create factional fighting and a country that remakes alliances and becomes Muslim and conservative, likely Shiite to Iran. If you enter Iran, you galvanize the conservatives for the next 20 years and create a generation like the one that grew up in Saudi and Iraq and bombed the WTC. War is defintiely last!
