Post Post subject: A little Quiz Reply with quote

A little quiz for those who bother to drop-by here.

Who said the following:

“As long as the gun remains the fastest way to power and property, there will be no room for democratic politics."


"There is often no alternative to outside armies keeping the order. We have to be prepared to commit suitable forces for an extended period of time.”


“The peace efforts in Bosnia or Afghanistan would not have been possible without the co-operation of the neighbours. If neighbours try to destabilise, they will sooner or later succeed.”


“Just about everyone recognizes that if the liberation of Iraq from tyranny is not followed by the liberation of Palestine from occupation - giving true security to Israel, too - the presence of US and other coalition forces in Iraq will be very difficult.”


“Some sort of UN framework normally helps, although it is not a guarantee.”


“We have tried before, and there is much to be learned from the experiences of the past decades - from Haiti to Kosovo and East Timor.”
“The task is state-building - not nation-building.”


And just to provide the context:

If this is the European alternative thinking, as opposed to the “Hyperpower’s”, than we are in big trouble!
