    The “secret” to martial arts is knowing how LITTLE force to use, to have an enemy defeat themselves. The other factor is having the mental strength to overcome “violence” with an actual LACK of violence.


    Breaking eggs with a sledge hammer doesn’t leave you with much of an omelette.

    Fortunately there was a wiser teacher around to keep the white belt from really screwing things up.

    @ReFlex-76 Attack averted, situation masterfully resolved by President Obama;"

    You are almost as funny as the the strip. Thanks I need a laugh. So when things go boom are you going to eat the those words or are just going to say it not Obama’s fault? If he “did” something now to avoid it will it be his fault when it falls apart? Or was it his fault to start with with that red line line? i am just trying to gauge your white house press credentials. Better answer honestly I am sure Obama is listening.

    So our lack of “violence” is good. but what of all the killing in the name of Allah? What of Obama’s red line when they kill using gas? Is that not a sledge hammer.
    What sledge hammer? Obama was using a limp hand with a pillow. Now now don’t make me set off these million $ fireworks next week at these locations. If that is your idea of a “sledgehammer” then you are delusional.

    Obama’s tough but negotiate approach seems to be working. And the International reaction seems to be relief the neo-cons are not running the show with their “you are either for us or with the terrorists” approach.

    The USA has been laughed at by the international crowd for decades. Of course, President Bring-It-On didn’t help that any.
    I know it’s your fever-dream that America rule the world, but maybe it’s time to realize- after years and years of trying- that we can’t, and we shouldn’t.

    “……and the USA is being laughed at more and more by the international crowd…..”
    .
    Quite the opposite I’d say, now that the U.S. is starting to show some restraint in their foreign policy.

    @Genome Project

    and if he had gone ahead and fired cruise missiles two weeks ago, you would have been happy with that?"
    If you want to “punish” someone for being bad, you do it! And you do not take sides in a state that has many sides, you just find the “wrong” and you “correct” it. If the dog wets on your carpet, you do not wait till next week to use the newspaper on the hind quarters.

    Hmm, multiple ships with cruise missiles sitting off their coast, and a subtle “slip of the tongue” (it’s called a veiled threat and offer) that gets someone ELSE to carry the ball for a change, is “negotiation” in today’s world. That simple-minded resolve, like Lester et al favor, not being bright enough to deal with “negotiation” represents the true danger, is “very American”, and the reason so many around the world were shocked that the grandest “Idiot in Chief”, “W”, was reelected. Obama’s ability to negotiate, overtly, or with subtle overtures,or responses, IS respected in a WORLD tired of wars, especially those waged, or led, by the United States.


    The feathered chicken hawk, is actually a bird with outstanding vision, the human “chickenhawks” with their feathers always ruffled, and willing to send OTHERS to die, have the vision of an anvil, their “weapon of choice”, when a feather, not even a hammer, is the proper tool.
