I find it very interesting that some members of the party of Lincoln do not believe the above paraphrase of a statement by Lincoln.
They would have some of the world be slaves to dictators in the interest of our national security. For example, Tim Pawlenty said we need to "get tough on our enemies, not our friends." ("At CPAC, Egypt appears to be an afterthought", Washington Post, 2011-02-11)
Come on, Tim, with friends like Mubarak we create enemies, like the Egyptian Mohamed Atta.
