International Forbearance?

The velvet glove of democratic process worn on the iron fist of military might should now assist, not preempt a national development. Our role should be mature forbearance, patient restraint with infant democracies. We were fortunate to be able to develop our national character (our infant industries) protected by two huge barriers, a luxury most others do not have. This current disturbance of our international equilibrium may be necessary for the coming DECADES to secure our greater safety. No quick fixes here, though office-holders may promise otherwise. But Americans appear to me to be addicted to the drug-poppin’ quick-fix.
