Image, The justification – the idea that we have a right to invade

The justification – the idea that we have a right to invade another country and determine another people’s destiny – is frightening. And I fear really for the future of that occupation. What happens now, and twenty years from now, and forty years from now, given our case? People in the United States may feel like when we don’t see it on CNN twenty-four hours a day, it sort of disappears. But it doesn’t disappear for the people who have to live under occupation – and their children and their children’s children.
