Secretary of Defense Robert Gates yesterday told our Asian allies that even tougher sanctions are needed atop of the tough sanctions already in place to finally curb the nuclear ambitions of North Korea.
Don’t these guys already subsist on grass and rock soup? How are tougher sanctions going to break them?
"They create a crisis and the rest of us pay the price to return to the status quo ante," Gates told the Shangri-La Dialogue, an annual meeting of defense and security officials. "As the expression goes in the U.S., I'm tired of buying the same horse twice."
There’s another expression in the U.S. Bob, Bill or whatever your name is, that defines insanity as doing the same thing repeatedly but expecting different results each time.
