The age of colonialism

A quotation worth contemplating from a Washington Post Op-Ed column by Zbigniew Brzezinski:

The speech reflects a profound misunderstanding of our era. America is acting like a colonial power in Iraq. But the age of colonialism is over. Waging a colonial war in the post-colonial age is self-defeating. That is the fatal flaw of Bush's policy.
