Where is Shabah?
I worry about anyone posting from Saudi Arabia. They are one of the most repressive governments on Earth, and I doubt their secret police miss much that is going on on the Internet sourced from their country. Their security services would make the Gestapo blush, with their reliance on torture and mutalation. Of course, we are their biggest supporters, and can hardly wait to build an Iraqi KGB to match. Haven't heard from him for a while. Where are you, dude?
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.
