Don't waste your breath on these guys. Truth fucks them all up. They have hid the caskets, they have hid the enemy dead, they have hid the dead children. To be forced to see what their fucking war is all about is just too much for them.
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.
