Nobody likes nothing
I certainly with all my heart that it did not exist

But wishing is not enough
We live in the real world where nothing does exist
We cannot just disinvent it

Nothing is not comprehensible
Neither you nor I have any hope of understanding just what it is and what it does

It is hard to know if nothing is actually nothing
And thus difficult to know if a policy of doing nothing is successful

However effective it may have proved up to the present
Can hardly continue to do so indefintely

If I had choose
Between the continued possibility of nothing happening
And of doing nothing
I would unquestionably choose the latter

Or the former

We will not hesitate to carry out what has been threatened
This is not over until absolute unconditional surrender
And complete meeting of all demands
There will be no further warning whatsoever Airstrikes are imminent
