Talking with Terrorists

Obama and the Democrats should not have reacted so negatively to Bush's comments about talking with terrorist states and organizations. This should not be an issue. Does anyone seriously believe that the US government has not been in contact with Iran and Hamas? Does anyone believe that the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson administrations were not in contact with the Chinese government? Who believes that the first talks between the United States and China was when Nixon traveled there? The issue here is not back room discussions; the issue is with state visits. The only outcome of state visits is prestige being conferred upon despicable people and their organizations. It must be understood that there are situations where talking will not solve the problem, where there can be no common ground.

Say you were the mayor of a town and the KKK was gathering their forces saying that they would kill all the Niggers in the town. What sort of common ground can their be? What sort of compromise? Kill only half the Niggers in town? Insist that the KKK refrain from using the n-word and call all the black folks African-Americans or People of Color while they're being lynched?

No the only communication you could, or should, have with them is "Come here with that shit and we're going to kill you like the fucking rabid dogs you are."
