This is the war we should have six years ago. Our enemies have now had six years to prepare for it while Bush and Cheney had their heads up their asses in Iraq. Now we have al Queda to deal with as well. Numerous people who post here predicted exactly that. What a clusterfuck and a half.
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
