What about our hearts and minds?

Last time Americans led a coalition to topple a mass-murdering dictatorship in the Middle East, the Arab League and the Arabic press hysterically denounced us as imperialist crusaders fighting a war for oil and Israel. Egged on by al-Jazeera, they cheerleaded the "resistance" that killed thousands of our soldiers with roadside bombs in the years that followed. -- Michael Totten

Your Say

This goes back to what I was thinking when in the early 2000's I would hear others say 'We must restore our relations with our allies'. My thought was 'No; they must restore their relations with us'.

We aren't the supplicants; and I will vote against the political class that continues to see the USA as supplicant to the world's approval as the USA bears the world along. Considering that Europe and its sophisticates have dragged the world into the two greatest conflicts ever known and have terribly screwed up nearly everything they have touched since the curse of Marx landed on them, why on earth would anyone ever care to hear, let alone consider, their opinion (and the opinion of their sycophants here) on anything?

Boggles the mind, really.

After watching those helicopters ferrying water to the reactors in Japan, I figure it would take only one trip to drop our worthless Congress and the Administration into one of the containment building.

Can't hurt, might help them and definitely will improve our world standing.

We would need another helicopter or two for the mainstream media, right?
