We want you to realize now, for the fourth time in a hundred years, this country and its allies are on the march and that we are on the side of those whom you - the Mubaraks, the Saudi Royal family - most fear: We're on the side of your own people.' Woolsey noted proudly that the US was engaged in fighting World War IV."

We know that sooner or later, we'll have to confront these regimes, like Syria, Iran, North Korea and the like. Because raw force is about the only way we are going to get anywhere with them and their radical beliefs. Some may call it pre-emptive war, but I call it just a matter of common sense. Take them out BEFORE they turn into the next Third Reich."
