RE: Will Rummy have a rendezvous with justice?
The whole "democracy" argument has this huge hole in it - this country was not a threat to us. You are essentially endorsing this policy: we have a right to go into a country, murder women and children by the thousands, and then give them a democracy and its all ok. It is the biggest pile of immoral bullshit ever handed to the increasingly chump-ass American people. You are saying we have the right to be judge, jury and executioner for the rest of the planet based upon the Republican Party's judgement of whether they have a government that the Repugs approve of. Incredible.
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.
