Nose in the Air…

Back in the 7th grade there was a girl in our class who dealt with people and problems by literally sticking her nose up in the air – refusing to speak to those on her mad list. Outside of a few hangers on, she was detested by everyone.
Who would have guessed that her method of operation would one day become an accepted part of American foreign strategy. Odd that our former European allies try to negotiate by staying in touch with Iran and Hamas while the Bush administration simply refuses to speak to them.
Mr. Putin gave Mr. Bush quite a lecture on getting along with folks you don’t approve of yesterday. Never stop speaking to them. Keep channels open.
Putin was right.
