The Foreign Policy of Pooh

I am not sure whether to laugh or cry. I thought that Mr Danzig was safely in the dustbin of history. Where is Obama dredging up this load of forgotten morons from?

The Foreign Policy of Pooh: "What was that word from 2000 again? Oh yes...gravitas.

Richard Danzig, who served as Navy Secretary under President Clinton and is tipped to become National Security Adviser in an Obama White House, told a major foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to: if it is causing you too much pain, try something else.

Mr Danzig told the Centre for New American Security: �Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.�

Danzig went on to say the animals in the book 'Big Red Barn' were a metaphor for world citizens and that we should, like the characters in the book, 'all live together in the big red barn and play all day in the grass and in the hay.'

Next week, 'Foreign Affairs' will publish an essay by Danzig entitled 'Everyone Poops: We're More Alike than We Are Different so Can't We Just All Get Along?'"
