doing the right thing

“you can always count on the americans to do the right thing, but only after they have exhausted every other possible options.”

a particularly memorable quib from the british prime minister winston churchill, and one that i could not help myself but quote at a gathering the other evening where a draft of a certain much-anticipated report was being previewed by its principal author.

one hopes churchill was right, and that eventually everyone’s mind does turn to doing the right thing if only to have tried every possible option -and that the anticipated change of strategy here in afghanistan is tentamount to just that: doing the right thing.
one hopes.
