I find it funny how the right is outraged over Chavez calling Bush "the devil" when the Bush administration constantly released press releases calling Chavez "a thug". This administration, with it's Gucci clad clothes horse Secretary of State who so far seems incapable of solving a single real problem from Lebanon to Baghdad, is the most diplomatically dense bunch that has ever occupied the White House. Perhaps a little "goes around, comes around" is not surprising.
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.
