On God, War, and Freedom

"Freedom is on the march in this world. I believe everybody in the Middle East desires to live in freedom. I believe women in the Middle East want to live in a free society. I believe mothers and fathers want to raise their children in a free and peaceful world. I believe all these things, because freedom is not America's gift to the world, freedom is the almighty God's gift to each man and woman in this world."

Because one of the great admonitions in the Good Book is, don't try to take a speck out of your eye if I've got a log in my own."
