Nice review of this must see film. As you noted, I think it's worth restating what he says in regards to Lesson #8: Be prepared to reexamine your reasoning.

"We are the strongest nation in the world today. I do not believe we should ever apply that economic political or military power unilaterally. If we'd followed that rule in Vietnam we wouldn't have been there. None of our allies supported us. Not Japan not Germany not Britain or France. If we can't persuade nations with comparable values of the merit of our cause, we'd better reexamine our reason. "

This was one of timeliest lessons given when I saw it (in Sept 2003), and sparked no end of discussion amongst the reviewers at the press screening. Unfortunately I couldn't transcribe it and didn't want to butcher the quote - me and penmanship, not a pretty picture normally - when I'm trying to do it in the dark it gets downright ugly...
