UNION AT THE POINT OF A BAYONET...Glory, Glory, Hallelujah...
In 1999 President Clinton was told by the Red Chinese premier that they had the right to use force to reclaim Taiwan, referring to Lincoln’s actions as a, quote “model and an example.”
The Soviets mentioned Lincoln’s actions, as authority to hold its Soviet union together by force, if it so desired.
In 1968 the Soviets invaded Czechoslovakia to prohibit voting on reforms. The soviet premier used the same rationale as Lincoln did in Maryland, as authority for his actions, the “Security of the government.”
German generals cited Lincoln’s war policies when condemned for their actions during World War II.
