Albania: A most excellent friend 
Powerline links to a letter from the Albanian Ambassador to the United States:

Why does Albania do this when it could have avoided President Bush's call for support, or when it could have dropped out as others have done when the going got tough? The answer is not difficult to find. If you believe in freedom, you believe in fighting for it. If you believe in fighting for freedom, you believe in America.

Read the whole thing.

It's interesting to me that this piece ran in the Washington Times. What I infer from that is that the Ambassador first submitted the piece to some other mainstream editorial page, who (predictably, alas) declined to run it.

Today as we simultaneously observe and celebrate the passage of the Hebrews from slavery into freedom, the ressurection of Christ and His victory over death, and the coming of spring and the renewal of life to the land, than to stop and reflect that while conflict is constant, all conflicts are passing, and that nations which once regarded one another with antipathy and suspicion can, within the lifespan of a generation, evolve into being the warmest of friends.

And that all people, everywhere, yearn to breathe free.

Splash, out
