Crisis diplomacy

I find this an odd re-enactment of the Cuban missile crisis, slightly worried that a Florida pastor would really, in the end, turn this into a Quran missile crisis. Or maybe this situation is so odd it is not reminiscent of anything. I am just trying to see patterns in a crazy world, while the occasional 9/11 "truth" movement activist in the background puts me off. In any case, call me a peace activist when faced with this kind of stand-off, and I won't call you anything worse, either. Deal?
