Diplomacy must have an endpoint

Reader comment on item: [Appeasement Explains] Why Europe Balks

As a longtime Leftist and admitted Bushphobe, it pains me to have to support anything he proposes. However, even the most braindead lovechild should be able to remember that rewarding bad behavior only leads to more bad behavior. Terrorist states must be brought to heel, while I would prefer that we begin with Saudi Arabia, taking down the Baathist Iraq, hopefully to be followed
by Syria is a good start. I would hope then that the twenty-something generation of Iranians would take heart and execute their own Thermidorian Reaction against the corrupt mullahs and take their place among civilized nations. Let Europe stew in its own juice.
