I am sure the war is still popular with the Republican Militia in Iraq. Since 22 billion has disappeared into thin air, I am sure it has become a great enterprise for all of those on the inside, from soldiers with their cushy signing bonuses to the "contractors" making ten grand a week. It must be a splendid little war.

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
