President Obama’s Endorsement
Here below is the relevant for our purposes portion of Obama’s speech to the UK Parliament and, confirms what Senators Kerry and Clinton have been telling us to do:
We will proceed with humility, and the knowledge that we cannot dictate outcomes abroad. Ultimately, freedom must be won by the people themselves, not imposed from without. But we can and must stand with those who so struggle. Because we have always believed that the future of our children and grandchildren will be better if other people’s children and grandchildren are more prosperous and free — from the beaches of Normandy, to the Balkans to Benghazi. That is our interest and our ideal. And if we fail to meet that responsibility, who would take our place?…………It has been the values that we must never waver in defending around the world — the idea that all human beings are endowed with certain rights that cannot be denied. PRESIDENT OBAMA’S SPEECH
They will stand with those who struggle AND freedom must be won by us.
The endorsement cannot get any clearer.
