One wonders how they can be so proud of what they have done. The hijacking of a country's economy without consent of the people who live there, and the mass murder of its citizens, that's something to be proud of all right. These same people promise us they are doing this to "protect us" and offer only nebulous abstractions as to why this is so, yet we can see concretely in the trade "agreements" and in the fat bank accounts of the cronies the reality of the war and the real reasons it was fought. This isn't America liberating Europe, its Custer and the Indians.
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
