A Second Step

The first step may have been ill-considered and is by no means over, but it does seem to be going about as well as might reasonably be hoped.

I'd humbly suggest that now would be a good time to be putting together a foreign aid package, and to be doing so publicly and transparently. A twenty billion dollar commitment up front would be a good start. Ultimately, it would make sense to spend as much on the peace as on the war, if not more.
