Resolving conflict


To be sure, we need something to appreciate together the national power in Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, and it is nice to see a spontaneous smile from folks on the street. Killing the bad guys, however, is not a step closer to winning the war on terror.

We still need to find a way to resolve conflict through something other than violence to achieve the peaceful coexistance wherein lies our ultimate security. And, it is appropriate that our great empire sets this as its goal.
