More signs of Bush's success. The War in Iraq has been, more than anything else, a war against Sunni Islam. Is it any surprise that the largest and most powerful Sunni state is becoming radicalized? Does anyone think that the pictures they see every night on TV, the pictures we here in the United States are not allowed to see, of blasted Sunni children, young Sunni men executed by US-supported Shiite Death Squads, all of the horror of war - is it any surprise they now vote for political parties that call for our heads? This is just the beginning. The entire Sunni world, from the ground up, is becoming inflamed against us, thanks to Bush.
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
