Samuel Berger talks about what should govern our future actions.
Meeting these and other challenges depends in no small measure on whether and how America leads. We must prevail in our campaign against terrorism. But we can define neither all threats as terrorism, nor our only threat as terrorism. If we use our power only for self-protection, and in a manner that is self- righteous, we shall fuel the fires of resentment. If we also use our power in co-operative efforts to advance our shared well-being, our reward will be not only a better, more peaceful world but also the influence and authority we command within it.
