An entire generation of Americans grew up threatened by an older Soviet one bragging that they would "bury us". Kept from the heat of the Cold War by those who have yet to thaw out, we may be in even greater danger today from those our own age.

Winston Churchill said that democracy was the worst form of Government except for "all those others". What that may mean now is that democracy was just the last form of government to fail... as all those others have.

Many think today that George Bush; in his manic desire to force Democracy on everyone else is incompetent. What if he is just the opposite; a deadly efficient orchestrator of events, a master manipulator of the lowest common denominator, a deluded tool in the hands of others even worse who only has to suffer being seen as "incompetent" as the agenda of Those he serves comes to final fruition.
