RE: A Sad message for a Believer in the U.S.A's Democracy-------Iraqi's BEWARE
Why? From history we can learn that if we get the hell out of people's way, they solve their own problems. Both Cambodia and Vietnam are stable emerging nations. Given the inherent corruption, especially the utterlly contemptible variety found in Asia, of market capitalism, Communism may actually be a useful period in their history, allowing all the hoodwinkers, kleptocrats, bribetakers, pimps, war profiteers and slavers to get nicely shot so that some kind of moral society can take place so that democracy can flower. It seems to be headed exactly that way in Asia. Of course, I'm sure you'd be happy if this princely fellow assumed his God-given right to rape and pillage his people, under US supervision of course, instead, you know, like what we do in Saudi Arabia, whose people repay us by flying suicide missions into our buildings. Yea, lets ignore history.
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.
