Colin Powell, you had your chance...

So sweet it is, to have a real Secretary of State, working tirelessly to further the President's vision, instead of undercutting it. And working to further the dream of democracy and peace, indifferent to the scorn of "realists," and the hatred of the anti-democratic Left. Here's Condi in Egypt...

YahooNews:...."For 60 years, my country, the United States, pursued stability at the expense of democracy in this region, here in the Middle East, and we achieved neither," Rice said. "Now, we are taking a different course. We are supporting the democratic aspirations of all people."

She noted that President Bush, in his second inaugural address, said the U.S. would not try to impose an American style of government on the unwilling and that the goal of his administration was to help others find their own voice.

"Throughout the Middle East the fear of free of choices can no longer justify the denial of liberty. It is time to abandon the excuses that are made to avoid the hard work of democracy," Rice said.

Rice took the governments of Saudi Arabia and Egypt, both close U.S. allies, to task for cracking down on dissent...(thanks to
Gateway Pundit).

This is the Grand Strategy of the War on Terror. People sometimes make grim jokes, about how we should nuke 'em, turn Mecca into a green glass parking lot, etc, etc...But we are! Freedom and Globalization are going to melt those closed and backwards societies.
