I'm a little disappointed that I didn't make the top ten list that KV posted. Where'd I put my jackboots?
Well, if you actually count the entries, there are only nine. I left yours off because you get such a swelled head over things.
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.
