Different enemy, same stakes

"Arise and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time." -Winston Churchill

So it is again, and so it always will be. From Power Line:
"...Churchill's great speech upon becoming Prime Minister in May 1940--the speech in which he said, 'I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.' This...is the key passage from that speech:
You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival."
