RE: Ann Coulter thinks Canada went to Vietnam
If what you are saying is true, why did Hussein not have an insurgent problem? If anything, these men have proved a dissident army can operate in Iraq. Why did one never rise up to oppose Saddam? We certainly could have supplied it with arms and money. The state of Iraqi society is certainly as much of a police state as Saddam had - why no anti-Saddam insurgency?
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.
