And so it begins…
I knew this would start to happen eventually. But I honestly thought it would take much longer than this. Wow.
I’ve said this before, but when major events occur like freeing a people to choose their own destiny, you really need to take a long hard look at the historical aspect of what you’re doing. What side of history are you going to support? I have to believe that spreading democracy is a good thing. I just have to… despite the sacrifices and there will be many more to come.
Our own history is packed full of sacrifice. But it has to start at some point. President Bush instinctively knew this. Someone has to turn down the road, even though they know there are dangers that lurk everywhere. This is the mark of courage. Going down the easy road for the short term acceptance is a road anyone can take because it requires nothing more than doing what we’ve always done before.
