Here we go again, ready to mount that white stallion and save another part of the world. Give me a break; that white horse is covered in mud.
We want to go to Syria and save the children from another half-mad dictator. Do you get the feeling this planet is full of half-mad dictators and politicians?
This all reminds me of the time when I was a child living on my grandparents’ farm. For entertainment on a hot summer day, my friends and I would converge with fly swatters in hand and head for the pig enclosure. There were thousands of flies everywhere. We would swat away and kill them by the hundreds and go back the next day and see thousands more.
This is the same situation with dictators and the terrorist movement we face today.
Keep the horse in the barn and clean the mud off him. We can hardly save ourselves.
