Funny how Osama was never captured. Funny how the whole thing ends up with the Iranians being the winners, with the Sunni Taliban destroyed in their East and the Socialist Hussein destroyed in the West, with them now with in months of gaining control of Shiite Iraq and its vast oil fields, so that they will end up control over a third of the oil on the planet. Funny how Iranian spy Ahmed Chalibi ended up being a top advisor to Dick Cheney. Funny how Bush and Iran can wave nukes at each other, and the price of oil goes up and down like a magician's yoyo. Couldn't have gone better if they planned it, now could it?
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.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
