„Far from being the Great Satan, I would say that we are the Great Protector.“

— Colin Powell
Context: Far from being the Great Satan, I would say that we are the Great Protector. We have sent men and women from the armed forces of the United States to other parts of the world throughout the past century to put down oppression. We defeated Fascism. We defeated Communism. We saved Europe in World War I and World War II. We were willing to do it, glad to do it. We went to Korea. We went to Vietnam. All in the interest of preserving the rights of people. And when all those conflicts were over, what did we do? Did we stay and conquer? Did we say, "Okay, we defeated Germany. Now Germany belongs to us? We defeated Japan, so Japan belongs to us"? No. What did we do? We built them up. We gave them democratic systems which they have embraced totally to their soul. And did we ask for any land? No, the only land we ever asked for was enough land to bury our dead. And that is the kind of nation we are.

„Capital is a coward. It flees from corruption and bad policies, conflict and unpredictability.“

— Colin Powell
Context: Capital is a coward. It flees from corruption and bad policies, conflict and unpredictability. It shuns ignorance, disease and illiteracy. Capital goes where it is welcomed and where investors can be confident of a return on the resources they have put at risk. It goes to countries where women can work, children can read, and entrepreneurs can dream. As quoted by Ambassador Cameron R. Hume in [http://pretoria.usembassy.gov/wwwhambhume020918.html a speech on U.S. Government Initiatives in South Africa] at the American Chamber of Commerce, Johannesburg, South Africa (18 September 2002).
