RE: if US invades Pakistan
Why bother going after Bin Laden, right Botnst? We all know that according to Bushspeak, going after Iraq was the correct response to 9-11, after all, don't we? It would be stupid to go after Bin Laden. it would be stupid to re-enforce the levees in new Orleans, too.
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.
