How lucky we are to live in a world with so many moral men

Jeffrey Goldberg, “Should the U.S. Invade Iraq?”, October, 2002:

The administration is planning today to launch what many people would undoubtedly call a short-sighted and inexcusable act of aggression. In five years, however, I believe that the coming invasion of Iraq will be remembered as an act of profound morality.

Osama bin Laden, “Declaration of War against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places,” August, 1996:

Terrorizing you, while you are carrying arms in our land, is a legitimate right and a moral obligation.
