      Loved the Breshnev opening. Excellent presentation of facts.Inspires hope for the Iraqi people (and for us)!Still work to be done though. Loved the Irish reconciliation model.Great answer to the "should we talk to our enemies" question: The Anaconda schema was very helpful in understanding the complexities of action with diplomacy. Thank you Heritage for streaming this!
