    Isolationism won't work. Never has and never will. Giving in to our enemies to appease them also does not work. WW2 should have proven that point to even the most ignorant amongst us.

    That's exactly what the Palestinians and their allies believe, too.

    So the players in that game are into over 50 years of not appeasing the enemy and counting.

    Maybe someone should tell Obama that his interference is not only increasing the possibility of "woes" there but here....

    Keeping Nuclear Weapons Out of the Hands of Terrorists
    On April 5, 2009 in Prague, President Obama presented an ambitious strategy to address the international nuclear threat. He proposed measures to: reduce and eventually eliminate existing nuclear arsenals, including negotiations on further nuclear reductions with Russia, ratification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, and completion of a verified Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty; halt proliferation of nuclear weapons to additional states, and prevent terrorists from acquiring nuclear weapons or materials.

    We have pledged to work with our partners to achieve the denuclearization of North Korea through the Six-Party process. And we will present a clear choice to Iran to take its rightful place in the community of nations, including its right to peaceful nuclear energy, or continue to refuse to meet its international obligations and fail to seize the opportunity of a positive future.

    There's a difference between isolationism and non-interventionism, and reversing bad policy isn't "appeasing our enemies."
