10. You're certainly right about America's influence

on anti-colonial movements all over the world. We provided an example for others who wanted and still want to govern themselves. I'm not one of those who only sees the evil in U.S. policies, foreign or domestic. We have done a lot of good in the world, although we have often fallen short of the goals we have set for ourselves.

I am just the kind of person who doesn't want to upset the apple cart unless there's a damned good reason for it. I probably wouldn't have thought that the revolutionaries had a very good case, just as I would be loyal to the USA if there were a similar revolutionary movement now. But it is fun to wonder sometimes, what if things had turned out differently?
