Not so different after all

It’s discouraging to see what’s happening in the Middle East when all we’re trying to do is to convince them that a democratic society is the best form of government and that they should be like us. Unfortunately, all of the countries in the Middle East seem to have two factions that will not get together and discuss the issues that separate them and make the compromises necessary for the benefit of everyone.

Wait a minute! They’re already like us.
