“Security is mostly a superstition.
It does not exist in nature,
nor do the children of mean as a whole experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
To keep our faces toward change and
behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.”
Let Us Have Faith (1940)
The U.S. invaders in Iraq are beginning to learn that trying to govern an occupied territory is much harder than invading a country utilizing the superpower’s vast superiority in weapons, firepower and technology. The Roman Legions of the once powerful Roman Empire learned this too late and were doomed to suffer the fate of foreign invaders. The foreign infidels were either buried in the territories that they invaded and occupied, or were soon defeated, only to retreat in ignominy and humiliation at the hands of the colonized peoples.No comments
