MAKING FRIENDS …

MAKING FRIENDS IS BETTER PROTECTION THAN DEPENDENCE ON ARMS

It is amazing that politicians who want to lead a nation do not believe that making friends with other nations is a better policy than going after them with guns to seek protection.  Violence breeds violence; those who live by the sword perish by the sword.  Would be leaders should heed the advice of the greatest American president who said; ” Am I not destroying my enemy by making him my friend?

He was forced into a civil war by the attack of Southerners who wanted to segregate and perpetuate the slave trade,  but Lincoln by his vision saved the Union.  One cannot have too many friends, but one enemy is enough to cause fear;  One terrorist can cause fear in a whole community.  So, let this be a lesson to those who always think that might is right – a bee in the nostril of a lion can be very discomforting.
