RE: Hamas Wins Big in Palestine
Oh, I've got a much better chance than 50%. It's been proven over and over again. Ireland was part of one of the most advanced democratic countries in the world. For historical resentments, it refused to be a member of this democracy. They proved the point now being proven in Iraq - a democracy cannot function when one faction is voting with bullets. History has repeatedly shown only two solutions - partition or genocide. It is an axiom of history. The same is true in reverse - when a given ethnological group wishes to unite to form a nation, it is just as stupid to resist it. Our own history shows it. This democracy ceased to exist, only saved by a genocide of the Southern planter class. Iraq was held together by Saddam through genocide and . Now, we merely take his place.
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.
