Text Quotes
New media and mobile entertainment are revolutionizing the way people learn about the world  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) Few if any countries understand the growing importance of water as fully as Turkey does  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) With the exception of China, and perhaps Turkey, no country in the world matters as much to the United States as Mexico.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) Turkey and Brazil, though half a world apart geographically, have much in common. Both are large countries that spent long years under military dominance, but have broken with that history and made decisive steps towards full democracy.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) Operation Ajax’ presents history in an entirely new way. It takes a true story and uses cutting-edge technology, never before used in this way, to bring it to spectacular life.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) Western powers remain imprisoned by the idea that the world is a dangerous place, that it needs to be managed, and that they are called upon to do the managing.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel has denounced negotiation with Iran as a ‘historic mistake’ that is making the world ‘a more dangerous place.’ His partners in Washington vigorously echo that view.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) In 1983, most Nicaraguans had still not fallen to the depths of deprivation and despair which they would reach in later years, but many were already unhappy and restive.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) It is truly vital for the United States to assure that it is not attacked with weapons of mass destruction; to prevent wars in other countries from spreading onto American soil; and to maintain access to global sea lanes on which our economy depends. Beyond that, there is little or nothing in the world that should draw the United States to war.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) By the late 1970s, repression and economic chaos were causing increasing unrest throughout Latin America. Army strongmen were forced to cede power in Peru, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and the Dominican Republic.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) My general view is the delivery of news is changing in dramatic ways, and will continue to change into ways we can’t even predict.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) One October day in 1976, a Cuban airliner exploded over the Caribbean and crashed, killing all 73 people aboard. There should have been 74. I had a ticket on that flight, but changed my reservation at the last moment and flew to Havana on an earlier plane.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) During the Reagan Administration, so much attention was devoted to fighting Marxism in Nicaragua and El Salvador that Washington lost sight of longer-term challenges in other countries.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) In some countries that are darlings of the West, like Egypt, everyone knows the result of national elections years in advance: The man in power always wins. In others, like Saudi Arabia, the very idea of an election is unthinkable.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) The reason that Americans have not been able to see the great strategic benefit that could accrue from a closer relationship with Iran is emotion.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) No authoritarian leader cedes power easily or turns it over to bodies he cannot control  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) The Tigris and Euphrates Rivers created the ‘Fertile Crescent’ where some of the first civilizations emerged. Today they are immensely important resources, politically as well as geographically.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) Every nation, like every individual, would like to believe it owes ‘no apology’ to anyone. Adults realise, however, that few among us are purely innocent or utterly blameless.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) No one will presumably ever be able to prove or disprove such fundamental religious principles as the existence of God.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) If a leader comes to office in a seemingly fair election and tolerates dissent, he or she qualifies for our seal of approval.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) On Aug. 19, 1953, Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh of Iran became the first victim of a C.I.A. coup. Ten months later, on June 27, 1954, President Jacobo Arbenz of Guatemala became the second.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) For many years as a foreign correspondent, I not only worked alongside human rights advocates, but considered myself one of them. To defend the rights of those who have none was the reason I became a journalist in the first place. Now, I see the human rights movement as opposing human rights.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) The Afghans are probably the world champions in resisting foreign domination and infiltration into their country.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) Adroit geo-strategists take new realities into account as they try to imagine how global politics will unfold. In the foreign policy business, however, inertia is a powerful force and ‘adroit’ a little-known concept.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) A few of the world’s most famous non-American novelists have large followings in the United States, among them Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Guenter Grass, who were both popular even before winning the Nobel.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) Sultan Mehmet had good relations with the Medici family and other powerful Italian clans, especially in Venice and Florence, and at his request, they sent him artists and craftsmen by the dozen.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) During the 1980s, international interest in the Nicaraguan war was intense. No conflict since the Spanish civil war had provoked such passion around the world. It was a classic good-versus-evil war.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) Iran, in its former incarnation as Persia, created the world’s first empire, produced titanic figures like Cyrus, Darius, and Xerxes, and is one of the great fonts of world culture.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) No step the United States could take anywhere in the world would bring strategic benefits as great as detente with Iran.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes) In 1984, showing extraordinary courage, a group of Guatemalan wives, mothers and other relatives of disappeared people banded together to form the Mutual Support Group for the Appearance Alive of Our Relatives.  (Stephen Kinzer Quotes)
