What makes us Omniscient?
Have we a record of omniscience??
We are the strongest nation in the world today. I do not believe we should EVER apply that economic, political or military power unilaterally. If we had followed that rule, in Vietnam, we wouldn't have BEEN there. NONE of our allies supported us!? Not Japan, not Germany, not Britain or France. If we can't persuade nations with comparable values of the merit of our cause, we'd better reexamine our reasoning.
Robert McNamara, former secretary of defense during the Vietnam war, as quoted in the movie Fog of War
