"Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win
without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure
and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to
fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for
survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is
no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as
slaves."
by:
Sir Winston Churchill
(1874-1965) Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

    this should be given to blair and bush, to remind them of the pitiful state that they have caused in Iraq. Before they drew their attentions to Iran

    In the war against Islamic fascist terror the easy, sure, inexpensive victory could have been had as recently as the mid 1980s. Thank God that Misters Bush and Blair realize we are quickly approaching that "precarious" time. Pray that their successors don't wait for some more propitious wind to blow, but finish the job.

    I'm less worried about the manufactured terrorist threat than I am about the covert UN / Banker threat to our liberties. Churchill is right on every level though.
