  •  Hagel and Eisenhower (0+ / 0-)

    Thanks for that reference. Here's an important statement from Ike when he demanded Israel relinquish territory occupied in the Suez Crisis of 1956:

    Should a nation which attacks and occupies foreign territory in the face of United Nations disapproval be allowed to impose the conditions of its withdrawal? If we agree, then I fear we will have turned back the clock of international order.
    (quoted in "When Eisenhower Used the Big Stick: A Lonely Precedent," Middle East International, Jan. 1977.  Also, quoted in MEI, May 1975.)

    The spirit of liberty is the spirit which is not too sure that it is right. -- Judge Learned Hand, May 21, 1944
