I Don't Get It....Whatever "IT" Is

Forgive me for my ignorance.

Either I don't get it.
Someone is either confused (could be me), or is simply scratching the top of his head in wonder. But I thought sanctions were a good least stemming from the goofy logic that exists in Washington.
Well......Are Sanctions Good or Bad? Should we apply them, or should we not? You cannot have it both ways. You can't go on a no-carbohydrate diet, and then turn and eat cake unless you are either too weak to diet, or too self-deceived to see your lack of common sense.
Sanctions or No Sanctions......That is the question! (My wife is reading Shakespeare:)
Evidently, the dems in Washington are too wishy-washy to figure it out. Or, could it be that without a true moral foundation and direction they have no consistency of policy. What am I talking about? READ THIS...blurted from the mouth of a Democrat US Representative and see if jives with Obama's lackadaisical push for sanctions against Iran. As far as I see it, Hamas (Iran's lackeys) are making the same attempt as Iran to obliterate the Jewish State. So, why should we apply sanctions against Mahmoud, and then run the Israeli blockaide against Hamas so we can deliver food to rocket-launching, Islamic radicals in the Gaza Strip? Go figure.

Congressman calls for US to circumvent
Israeli Gaza blockade

Rep. Brian Baird compares Strip to Berlin Blockade after third visit to Gaza since Hamas took

Rep. Brian Baird, a Democrat from Washington state, called on the Obama administration on Friday to “circumvent” Israel’s blockade of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.Baird spoke in Jerusalem after a two-day visit to Gaza, his third since Hamas took over the territory in 2007.
The US should circumvent Israel’s blockade, “much like we did when we circumvented the Berlin Blockade,” he said. “We would accomplish this using roll-on/off ships supplying the needed material for Palestinians to rebuild their society.”
Baird criticized Israel for being too stringent in its blockade, which he said “was established so that contraband weapons and equipment used for rockets to shell Israel will not enter Gaza. “While there are foodstuffs entering Gaza, the shipments are tightly controlled and items such as tomato paste and pasta are sometimes restricted by the Israelis. Palestinians cannot rebuild their homes, their schools, their hospitals because they cannot import the cement needed to complete the projects. They cannot build sewage systems and prevent 55 million metric meters of sewage flow into the Mediterranean because the Israelis limit the amount of construction materials into Gaza.”
He also called for US special envoy George Mitchell to visit Gaza “to determine first-hand humanitarian needs.”
Israel has rejected Baird’s call, with Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor telling CNN that he wondered whether Baird’s support for a Berlin-like breaking of the blockade would have extended to a Berlin under the control of Nazi Germany. The best way to help Gaza residents, Palmor said, was “to get rid of those who took power in a bloody coup and now rule there with the bayonet.”
My Suggestion.......find a consistent policy and stick with it.....unless, of course, it's the wrong policy. Sanctions are the wrong policy, in my opinion. A big stick would work far better.
