      The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.....Martin Luther King '63

      It takes all the technical proficiency our system can provide to make up for the woeful lack of popular support and political savvy of most of the regimes that the West has thus far sought to prop up.........Bernard Fall

      He sounds as if that is a bad thing. We have been terrorizing the world since the iron curtain fell and stopped supporting the people in our own country not long after.
      We need the money spent at home not trying to force some other country to hand over all their goodies.

      Here he is again trying to defend the miserable decisions of Colin Powell and himself with respect to Iraq.

      The Bush administration didn’t make decisions in fear and anger after 911, their plan of action for the so called “New American Century” had been formulated in the early 90s. They were simply taking advantage of the general public’s fear and anger.

      They invested trillions of dollars in stupid adventures that yielded nothing in return. If they worked for one of the old empires, they would be thrown in the dungeon and left there.
