Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. ( Psalm 8:2 )
As Samson slayed the lion and returned to eat the honey. People should learn to eat crocodile. taste just like chicken !
Never tease or try to appease, subdue your enemy ! Even the crocodile cowers from the lion.

Someone needs to tell Kerry/Obama about Churchill’s quote in their dealings with Iran.

    Mr. Churchill, bless his heart, was so very practical it's scary. I wish our American leaders ere as intelligent AS WELL AS practical.

    Compromise with a croc and you get to walk away but with one less limb...

    Absolutely correct, how many Jews and Christians tried to appease Hitler, hoping they would be subjected to the horror last or even, out last the horror. How many sunshine patriots and fair weather friends of liberty feed the national establishment of religion in the Union of Socialist Amerika (USA), hoping the appeasement will allow one more day of materialism's expansion or of a view of one more day's rising sun?
