Diplomatic Defeat With Dignity-Remind me never to take claudometers to Washington, for politicians like Daschle keep shorting out the thing.
I'm saddened, saddened that this president failed so miserably at diplomacy that we're now forced to war, saddened that we have to give up one life because this president couldn't create the kind of diplomatic effort that was so critical for our country,"
Yes, the president did fail at diplomacy, but you can't get blood from a stone. "Diplomatic sucess" these days translates to "letting the French have their way" which translates to doing next-to-nothing about Iraq. As long as Iraq made some token gestures towards disarmement, we would had the French and Russians blocking more concrete actions. Diplomacy is a means to an end, not an end in itself. The end is a peaceful, more democratic and free world. Diplomacy wasn't getting us there.
