Lord Curzon's advice

Too bad George Bush never really took the time to read or understand British history. Other wise he might have remembered this little tid bit from Curzon , quoted from the real Lord Curzon:

We must remember that the ways of Arabs Orientals are not our ways, nor their thoughts our thoughts. Often when we think them backward and stupid, they think us meddlesome and absurd. The loom of time moves slowly with them, and they care not for high pressure and the roaring of the wheels. Our system may be good for us; but it is neither equally, not altogether good for them. Satan found it better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven; and the normal Arab Asiatic would sooner be misgoverned by Arabs Asiatics than well governed by Americans Europeans.

Just ask France about that.........
