This blog post will be prefaced by me saying:
NPR did an interview with Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif of Iran about our relationship with his country. He said something very interesting to me.
"Those who begin a war can not end it." Meaning history has a trend of countries who begin wars are typically not the same country to end that war. Which makes sense, unless we were under the impression that we "won". But, if we're not conquering (and I still believe we are but that's another topic for another day after I understand this concept more thoroughly than I do currently) then how did we win? How did they win? What does winning a war look like?
I'd love to know your thoughts on this. Please keep in mind any derogatory language, slurs, or personal feelings about the country in the interview will be removed and banned immediately. I have no time for that nonesense.
Keep it civil. Let me know what you think.
