    President Obama told the U.N. General Assembly Tuesday morning that the “world is more stable now than it was five years ago.”

    “Just as we reviewed how we deploy our extraordinary military capabilities in a way that lives up to our ideals, we’ve begun to review the way that we gather intelligence so that we properly balance the legitimate security concerns of our citizens and allies with the privacy concerns that all people share,” he said.

    “As a result of this work and cooperation with allies and partners, the world is more stable than it was five years ago,” he added.

    He hasn't smoked a cigarette in six years, either.

    Whose ideals? Since when are U.S. ideals to cut and run when we get tired or disappointed in the outcome, or the results of success? That's what we did in Iraq. That's what we are doing in Afghanistan. We couldn't even muster the guts to do more than provide peripheral support for Libyan liberators, and I'd be willing to be the British and French could have done what we did just as well.

    Two thoughts come to mind:

    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
    -- Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Stephens Smith, November 13, 1787​

    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
    -- paraphrase of Edmund Burke in Thoughts on a Cause of Present Discontents, 1770 ​
