Editor's note 07-15-21

When everyone says the U.S. has to "do something" in Haiti, the Biden administration has resisted sending in troops or billions of dollars, typical crisis reactions which have led to corruption. Many fear all is lost in Afghanistan now that Biden is pulling out U.S troops, but it's too soon to count out home-grown resistance to the Taliban. In answer to those who say "do something" in Cuba, the administration supports protesters, and the reformers who call for change. Supporting local reformers, without military intervention, is not doing nothing. Biden remembers what John Lennon wrote half a century ago: "All we are saying, is give peace a chance." –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
