s/cannot be/minimize the risk of/

And "would damage the country" is a very fuzzy concept that you really don't
want to go anywhere near.  Remember Microsoft arguing that a Federal judge
shouldn't impose an injunction that was going to make them miss a ship
date, on the grounds that the resulting delay would cause lost productivity
at customer sites and harm the economy?

(Mind you, I thought MS was making a good case they *should* be regulated,
if their ship dates actually had that much influence.. ;)
