The calling to spread freedom and champion democracy did not originate with President Bush, or even with our Founding Fathers. The mission of democracy is much older than that, as Warriors reminds us through its selection of the famed funeral oration given by Pericles in commemoration of fallen Athenian soldiers for its foreword:

“Our form of government does not enter into rivalry with the institutions of others. Our government does not copy our neighbors’, but is an example to them. It is true that we are called a democracy, for the administration is in the hands of the many and not of the few. But while there exists equal justice to all and alike in their private disputes, the claim of excellence is also recognized; and when a citizen is in any way distinguished, he is preferred to the public service, not as a matter of privilege, but as the reward of merit.”

Everything that is at stake now -- in Iraq and Afghanistan, in the threats posed by Iran and North Korea, in the insolence demonstrated by Russia in its invasion of Georgia -- is the same “everything” that has always been at stake for as long as men have made war. Our Declaration of Independence cites freedom as an unalienable right, not just for Americans but for all human beings. Our way of life, our very right to exist, is the “everything” for which our service men and women are willing to give so much of themselves. They fight to defend America’s freedoms, and they fight to grant the gift of freedom worldwide.
