Not this time Octavio

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:
in response to reader comment: Lessons from Rome's diplomacy

Submitted by Judeo-Christ (Canada), Dec 11, 2006 at 00:44

Octavio, the only difference is that the Barbarians that Rome was confronted with and the Barbarians that the World is now confronted with are two totally different entities. With these Barbarians it seems that the only option is War and then diplomacy in that order. These Barbarians only know the language of the tough, civility and diplomacy will be a waste of time. It is our weakness(being civilized) that they are capitalizing on.
