RE: What would happen to the Middle East....
Hey, I am all in favor of high oil and gas prices. I hope they hit $6 a gallon, especially right around Election Day, 2006. If ever this country needed a Congress that could come up with the required majorities for impeachent, it is now, and gas prices thru the roof will do nothing but help that happen.
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.
