Quote on front: If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely, and we don't try to piece together clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war ... our children will sing great songs about us years from now.
Back side statement: The quote overleaf is sometimes attributed to Richard Perle, be originates with fellow former Reagan official and influential political thinker Michael Ledeen. Ledeen can be found in the American Enterprise Institute where he is resident scholar in the Freedom Chair (you really couldn't make it up.) Michael seems to be one of those members of the military minded US political elite who think a Fourth Reich is an attractive idea.
Here's another question. This item from Gore Vidal. "The awesome physical damage Osama and company did to us is as nothing compared to the knock-out blow to our vanishing liberties. The Anti-Terrorism Act of 1996 combined with the recent request to Congress for additional special powers to wiretap without judicial order, to deport lawful permanent residents, visitors and undocumented immigrants without due process. Could it be that the greatest victim of September 11th terror attacks will be American Liberty?"
