why-war.com?: "War is the very crudest of responses and reflects the utter failure of imagination and intelligence in foreign policy. The cycle of poverty, inequality, and hatred will grow worse. Terrorist recruiting will flourish in the aftermath."
--Prof. Thompson Bradley, Swarthmore College

"The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or on the next. It was the deep knowledge – and pray God we have not lost it -- that there is a profound moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest."
-Ronald Reagan, June 6, 1984, on the beaches of Normandy

Also, go here and listen to Condi Rice in the FNC Interviews section. The G-8 is holding a summit now which is mainly focused on democracy in the Middle East. I don't understand how people could oppose US action in the past, where we opted for security rather than democracy, and ALSO go against US action now, where we act to secure democracy and put reform in overdrive.
