Romney Calling “Cease Fire” a Bad Thing?

In any war, in any conflict, and virtually in any situation where people are willing to put down their weapons has to viewed as a good thing, right? The idea of a cease-fire always precedes peace, but somehow, Mitt Romney doesn’t think it is a good idea.

It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell.

– William T. Sherman

Mr. Romney, are you paying attention? And let’s be absolutely clear, a “cease-fire” is always a good thing. It is difficult to negotiate resolution and peace over the sound of gunfire. It is hard to discuss terms and find common ground to work from if you are ducking bullets. A cease-fire agreement is always an opportunity for peace.

The famous quote from our great General above wasn’t even specifically speaking about that, however, as his message was considerably more grave. What General Sherman was speaking about was life and death, the blood and loss, the horror of war and military conflict. The kind of horror that can be avoided as a result of a cease-fire.

As one story reports though, Senator Romney doesn’t appear to be aware of the benefits of a cease-fire, or more importantly, the real cost of war. The story explained that “if we start killing Turks to stop their advance, we are inviting more cooperation between them and Russia, a major new war in the region, and an unprecedented crisis in NATO.”

Then it reminded us as well that “there’s a reason no EU countries are rushing in to help here, even though they were far more at risk from ISIS and the refugee crisis than the United States.” The risk of getting entangled in another conflict in the Middle East is a costly one, it always has been. It is here, in these moments that we need to remember and heed the words of Sherman, a man who intimately knew the cost of battle.

The tension is heavy in this region, Syria is lashing out and Turkey isn’t afraid to swing either. There has already been enough violence to prove the threat is real and we also have our troops in harm’s way. So a cease-fire is a bad thing how?

Our story reports that Romney called Turkey a “small country,” then elaborated about how they shouldn’t be difficult to deal with. This thinking is not only lacking foresight but is also potentially dangerous. Our story noted these concerns regarding Romney’s stance saying “there’s no admission they are part of NATO or that war with Turkey would be profoundly harmful to the United States on a variety of levels.”

While the Senator is calling this a “bloodstain” in the records of our history, the irony is that a cease-fire agreement is how we avoid spilling more blood. It is also worth noting one Twitter response cited by our story that reminded Romney regarding the small country of Turkey that “…it’s the 2nd largest army in NATO. Our forces in Syria rely on the base in Turkey for air support and more.”

This lack of understanding and failure to grasp the big picture is only a part of why the Senator failed to win in 2012, but it is a big part. Our story summarized Romney’s inability to grasp reality as well, adding that “Romney presents the situation like it’s a game, as if he just virtue signals enough, that’ll change everything. Pretty words don’t fight wars. Worse, he won’t just say what he wants. If the ceasefire and coming sanctions aren’t good enough, what’s he want to do then? He won’t say because… he’s too cowardly to admit his ultimate conclusion.”

We honestly don’t know what Senator Romney wants or how he wanted to handle the situation, and we don’t expect him to tell us either. Based on all the information we have though, his ideas and how he would have handled this situation would have cost us greatly.

Sometimes our decisions are based heavily on price, what will it cost us? Maybe, if you have never had to consider or think about the cost of anything, then you might understandably be lacking some of those skills. When we start thinking about spending the lives of our sons and daughters, however, you better know, and understand the price. If Mitt Romney views a cease-fire as a bad thing, then he clearly doesn’t.

    definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.

    user in his/her mind that how a user can know it. Therefore
    that’s why this article is outstdanding. Thanks!

  4. Wow, this post is pleasant, my younger sister is analyzing such things, therefore I am going to convey her.

  5. My family members always say that I am killing my time here at
    web, but I know I am getting experience everyday by reading thes good articles or reviews.

  6. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    guidance from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks

  7. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!

  8. I don’t think so but who knows? What about the kids of the current occupant of the White House, did any of them serve in the military? Please give us a break, After all, what’s good for the geese is good for the gander.

  10. Sen. Romney is an honest and decent man. At least, he is not a liar and more so he is a courageous man and tells people regardless of who/what/and status of the person what he/she doesn’t want to hear. I wished we have a lot of Romneys in the GOP. to shine the Republican Party and bless it with a reputation that others will feel proud to be associated with.

  11. mit the dip! savings lives is great. Cease fire. Also cease fire and lies against our president.

  12. AMERICA CAN’T FIX STUPID….AS IN ROMNEY

  13. Are any of Romney’s kids serving in the military? Pretty disingenuous to sit around in an overstuffed chair and pontificate about armed conflict when you have no skin in the game.

  14. he really should get out of politics hopefully the voters will remove him

  15. I was sorry that I voted for him, after I read a remark that one of his sons made. He said that his dad didn’t REALLY want to win. That did it for me right there. I’d almost vote for a Dimocrat before I voted for Mittens! He’s a JOKE, & sadly has 4 more years before he comes up for re-election.

  16. Romney is nothing but someones pawn and a useless POS! DUMP HIM TO THE CURB

  23. Utah’s Senator Sophomore is a disgrace and embarrassment for the religion of which he professes membership! The arrogance of the Faux Thirteenth Apostles’ unforgiving demeanor and petty vindictiveness has many of the faith questioning the sincerity and wisdom of such hate-filled and risky machinations of deceitfulness.
