The Foreign Minister of Denmark has suggested that is time to enter discussions with the brutal dictator of Syria, President Bashar al-Assad in order to move toward ending the horror that is known as the war in that land. During World War II, England and America formed an alliance with Soviet Russia’s dictator, Joseph Stalin. Why? They decided that Adolf Hitler and the German army were the greatest threats to the safety of the world. Stalin had murdered at least ten million of his own people, but as English Prime Minister Winston Churchill told a reporter who wondered why this staunch anti-Communist would ally with the Russian monster, “Sir, I would make an alliance with the Devil himself if it meant the survival of England.” Are there times when nations forge alliances with horrible leaders?
Foreign Minister Martin Lidegaard made it clear: “it is obvious that Syria’s future needs to be negotiated.” So, how about shaking hands with the Devil and seek to end the daily murders in Syria which only result in more power for Islamic terrorists like ISIS? Sorry, we have to negotiate with Assad. The only way to end evil may require shaking hands with evil.
Any other suggestion on how to end the conflict in Syria?
