And the fundamental question is: Can it? And my answer is: Absolutely, it can. I believe that freedom is a universal value. And by that, I mean I believe people want to be free.

One way to put it is, I believe mothers around the world want to raise their children in a peaceful world. That’s what I believe. And I believe that people want to be free to express themselves and free to worship the way they want to. ~George W. Bush

Really, mothers want their children to live in a peaceful world?  I didn’t know that.  Perhaps that should have been on someone’s mind before he started the war in Iraq.
