World Opinion Means...What?

In a column published at Jewish World Review on 1 August 2006, Dennis Prager writes that "'World Opinion' Is Worthless." Since there are those who seem to think we Americans and the Israelis should dance to the tune of "world opinion," I recommend that everyone read this essay. That's right. Stop reading my post and click on the link I have so thoughtfully provided for you. Read Dennis Prager's column and think about it. Seriously.

Over at The Heritage Foundation, there is a short article called "The Dangerous Consequences of Cutting and Running in Iraq" which summarizes five likely consequences of the USA pulling out of Iraq without finishing the job there. More food for thought.

I know that we would really like to see peace in the world, but as long as there are those who try to take away liberty (among other things), there won't be. We cannot stand by and let evil triumph over good. And, yes, it is just that serious. Moral relativism takes its toll when people say that all ideologies are equal. They are not. And appeasement will accomplish nothing.

I must sound like a warmonger, but I really am not. However, if we do not stand up for what is right and true and honorable, we will be in a far worse situation than if we go to war to fight for those things.

Hi Im from Melbourne Australia. I am always astonished at the righteous nievity of Americans.
Are you aware for instance that dreadfully sane "peace"-loving America is the worlds largest maker, owner, seller and user of weapons of all kinds especially WMD's. It accounts for 48% of the worlds armaments trade. The "culture" of death made very manifest in no uncertain terms!!!

This site:

gives a much more accurate picture of how "peace"-loving America conducts itself on the world stage.
