  • Victor Davis Hanson: Western liberalism proving to be only idea left standing

    The French and Dutch rebuffs of the European Union constitution will soon be followed by other rejections. Millions of proud, educated Europeans are tired of being told by unelected grandees that the mess they see is really abstract art.  The E.U. constitution — and its promise of a new Europe — supposedly offered a corrective to the Anglo-American strain of Western civilization. More government, higher taxes, richer entitlements, pacifism, statism and atheism would make a more humane and powerful new continent of over 400 million to outpace a retrograde United States.  Instead, Europe faces a declining population, unassimilated minorities, low...

    “When the people realize they have the power to expose the deceit underlying a government prone to repression, it is the beginning of that regime's end,” Peter Ackerman – Fletcher School graduate and Tufts trustee – wrote in an op-ed published in The Boston Globe. A resilient, yet experimental venture by the Bush administration into uncharted waters has proven largely beneficial as democracy sweeps several countries once occupied by tyrants. The winds of change are blowing across the world as jubilant demonstrators are taking back their God-given right to freedom once usurped by fascist dictators. An unshaken vision of...

    Rush Limbaugh radio show at 12:30 ^ | 31 August 2004 | President Bush
    President Bush stayed on message when Rush Limbaugh asked about his "win the war on terror" comment. He stated that the "long term solution is to liberate" the oppressed countries. He spoke of the "transformational power of freedom". These are main tenets of his Liberty Doctrine, which are fleshed out here: President Bush Delivers Graduation Speech at West Point as well as The National Security Strategy of the United States of America. President Bush is serious in stating that the solution to terrorism is to create a better atmosphere for democracy and liberty for all in the world.

    <p>May 2, 2003 -- LAST night, President Bush gave a speech about war and liberty that will be remembered for its emotionally overwhelming effect, delivered as it was before 2,000 cheering servicemen and women on board the USS Abraham Lincoln. It was a three-hanky speech. The setting, the rhetoric and the resolute and proud faces of those who serve this nation surely caused tears to spring to the eyes of literally tens of millions of Americans.</p>

    Following is the text of US President George W Bush's address to the nation late today from the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln nuclear aircraft carrier. Admiral Kelly, Captain Card, officers and sailors of the USS Abraham Lincoln, and my fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed. And now our coalition is engaged in securing and reconstructing that country. In this battle, we have fought for the cause of liberty, and for the peace of the world. Our Nation and our coalition are proud...

    A JOKE circulating in the Arab world last week concerned Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, the missing Iraqi information minister whose vain boasts of glorious victories against the American infidels proved tragically wide of the mark. When Sahaf dies they send him 63 angels, the joke begins. Three ask the usual questions about how he had behaved while alive. The other 60 are needed to stop him denying he is dead. Sahaf’s antics apart, the demolition of the Iraqi regime is proving no laughing matter for governments across the region. From the Gulf to the Mediterranean, the collapse of Saddam Hussein’s rule...

    Why We're FightingBy Michael | April 9, 2003 With U.S. troops currently engaged in Baghdad, it would be an understatement to call The War Over Iraq: Saddam’s Tyranny and America’s Mission timely. The frequency and vehemence of antiwar protests may have lessened somewhat since hostilities commenced, but Americans continue to question why the United States is undertaking a regime change in Iraq. In their compelling book, authors Lawrence F. Kaplan and William Kristol handily answer this and similar questions by first detailing the atrocities of Saddam Hussein’s regime, then comparing and contrasting the different approaches that the past three...
