But now the world has changed where you can kind of step over those bounds and make change, and they made a very positive one. It will work out great for our sport, as a whole. I think well gain a lot of new fans and a lot of new people will be paying attention, and thats great for all of us. THE FEUDS Hamlin, who won his third Daytona 500 in February, has been beefing with LaJoie on Twitter for months. It seemed harmless at first it wasnt even clear they were serious but took a turn in the last week. After Hamlin drew the top starting spot for last weeks race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where Hamlin lost three chances at a championship in season finale races, LaJoie said Hamlin would win the race because there was nothing on the line. That low blow escalated the warring words, prompting NASCAR to step in with an at-track meeting, Hamlin, who did indeed win at Homestead last Sunday, said after that race the feud was over. But LaJoie in his weekly podcast continued the clash until finally relenting Thursday with a social media post apologizing for his role in the bickering. LaJoie explained his position during a Zoom session with reporters and said both were wrong. Did I run my mouth a little bit more than what I probably should have? Yes. Did he do things that he probably regretted? Yes. Thats how we got into this situation, LaJoie said. We are both grown-ups. We both have kids. We both have jobs and livelihoods that are bigger than this little tiff we have going on. Meanwhile, Logano has not forgiven Elliott for the mistake that took them both out of contention on the final lap at Bristol. Logano refused to cut Elliott any room on the track as he raced Hamlin for the victory last week by making it difficult for Elliott to get past him every chance Logano had. Elliott curtly said after the race he needed to learn how to handle lapped traffic better and never mentioned Logano specifically. Logano has made it clear he has no incentive to get out of Elliotts way. You race people the way they race you. You cant do things without repercussions of some sort. You cost me a win, I cost you a win. Those types of things go like that.
But despite the horrific attacks, the reasons against a large-scale land invasion by U.S. and NATO forces against ISIS in Iraq and Syria remain, such an invasion will deepen the extremist narrative of clash of civilization between the West and Muslims, will insert our militaries into a deep, nasty, and unwinnable civil war, and the invading force will eventually be responsible for reconstructing a semblance of order and governance in (a) chaotic region infected with sectarian divisions.
