Condoleezza Rice
secretary of state
19 September 2008

"We cannot afford to validate the prejudices that some Russian leaders seem to have: that if you pressure free nations enough -- if you bully, and threaten, and lash out -- we will cave in, and forget, and eventually concede," she said.

and this from the country that brought you:
Banana republics
Opium wars and
Gunboat diplomacy
Taming the Wild West

Have your cake and eat it too:

Cuban Missile Crisis
1962 - Cuban missile bases good says Kruschev.
JFK is upset.
distance Havana - Washington DC = 1,825 km

2008 - Turkish missile defense system good says Bush
Russia is upset.
distance Istanbul - Moscow 1,755 km
distance Istanbul - Teheran = 2040 km

OK, so you think politicians are crooks, just like lawyers.
Come to think of it, most politicians are lawyers.

So what?
The real nightmare would be if nobody wanted the job.
