RE: Blood Bath in Iraq Continues
These groups denying each other freedom is the rule, not the exception. Iraq wanting to unite? What kind of Koolaid are you drinking man? The Kurds want out of Iraq, the Sunnis refused to be part of the election, and the Shiites just pick up them marbles. A "united" Iraq is as much a fiction today as it has been for a thousand yesterdays.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
