    One overwhelming constant proves more than anything George Bush's prediction that the liberty of America increasingly depends upon the liberty of others in the world. The fact that every single crisis in the world revolves around actions and policies taken by a dictatorship/totalitarian state should steel us even more for the difficult struggle that still lies ahead for the United States and her allies. The use of military force to liberate oppressed peoples and overturn despotic regimes will not end with Iraq. Despite what many well-meaning people believe, diplomacy and negotiation will not save the day or positively change the future with every problem. With all due respect to those who advocate this policy of using treaties and agreements to bind undemocratic regimes to good behavior, at heart a moral and historical vacuum exists.

    Besides abandoning oppressed peoples to their fate at the hands of despots, which is a tremendous moral error, history overwhelmingly shows the agreements and promises made by their totalitarian overlords are worthless. Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Udi Amin, Charles Taylor, Slobodan Milosevic, Saddam Hussein.... all made many promises and signed many treaties of understanding revolving around their behavior, both present and future, regarding violent aggression, oppression and the destablization of international security. They are joined by their idealogical parties and allies; the Soviets, the Chinese, Cuban, North Vietnemese and North Korean Communists, the apartheid South Africans, the Bosnian Serbs, the Iranian Mullahs, the Baathists, the Taliban.

    My question, indeed my challenge to anyone is; has a dictator, has a totalitarian state... have they ever kept their word in regards to treaties, agreements and promises? At a time when we are seemingly willing to risk our security and future on the word of oppressors in North Korea and Iran, is this wise? Is their word worth it? When we expect the victims of genocide and mass murder in the Congo and Darfur to cede their security, their future, in the name of "national soverignity", is this wise, is this just?

    They will NEVER keep their word on anything. Their whole system is set up and based on lies. Therefore they cannot and should not ever be dealt with other than in an aggresive manor to take them out of power.

    Wars are not fought by democratic countries against each other they are fought against dictators that try to extend their influence and power. The appeasment way will fail everytime. It just buys time for the dictator to build up his forces and power and influence.

    I suggest the first thing to do is kick all totalitarian governments out of the UN. Clean house. Make a list of the most beligerant and begin invasion plans. Use all available means to encourage populous uprisings in the countries while threatening them with invasion. Then watch the domino effect take place.

    But it won't happen cause there are too many liberals in power, especially in the UN. And the conservatives in the US don't have the gahoneys to push it.

    They keep their word all the time. When they say that they want you dead, you will end up dead.
