Nope.

We're selling a shotgun to a known murder, knowing exactly how he's going to use it.

We actually do have a choice not to do that. Hard to believe, I know.

Too bad. We don't have a choice -- we're actively involved one way or the other. That's what happens when you open up your pocketbooks to antidemocratic dictators overseas, you invariably end up here.

We knew exactly who we were doing business with, just like we did with the Taliban, just like we did with Saddam Hussein. Now all of us a sudden we're supposed to feign ignorance in order to save face -- yet again.

If you gotta pick a side, pick the one that's not murdering people in the streets.
