After listening to a bit of the third presidential debate on the radio, it seems to me that the international affairs issues are being complicated far beyond what is necessary. I think all foreign policy decisions should be considered in terms of pie. (Yep, the apple, cherry, cranberry/rhubarb kind!)
Ask the key questions: With whom would we want to share our pie? To whom would we want to send a pie? Whose supply of pie would we want to cut off -- or, in more extreme circumstances, in whose face would we want to throw a pie? With whom would we want to make pie?
Consider it a new doctrine, the "Mrs. Wagner Doctrine" (of course, a tip of the allusive hat to the Paul Simon lyric of the great Simon and Garfunkel recording "America" From Bookends):
So we bought a pack of cigarettes
and Mrs. Wagner pies
And we walked off to look for America
