Sorry, I think it's a cop out to say you don't want to see anyone
slaughtered, but then make a conscious choice to stand back & let it
happen. What we are dealing with is a leader whose type of consciousness
that can not be negotiated with. I was recalling the other day how I used
to sit at peace rallies in Boston during the Viet Nam war. My primary focus
was the laudable idea of wanting peace throughout the planet. But, at that
time, I was politically (& otherwise) unsophisticated & really did not
understand the complexity of the issues. We seem to have forgotten the
lengthy process NATO followed in trying to negotiate. In the end,
Melosovich refused to talk about the issues. When he stepped over the line
from war within his country to internationally defined "war crimes",
further action became justified. I don't think the beings on this planet as
a whole are evolved enough for peace. Sad, but true.
