Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This new book of D'Souza's was quite sad, to me, as someone who thought his What's So Great About America made a lot of good points.  He's done an complete 180-degree turn between the two, going from, in many ways, defending America on the basis of the cultural Left to bashing America because of it.

Does bin Laden find our culture offensive?  I'm sure he does, but al-Qaeda did not blow up the WTC and the Pentagon simply because Britney Spears dresses like a hooker.  No serious person could possibly believe that removing her from television would put an end to the conflict.

As always, my opinion is the same: Get off the oil, and put an end to our being involved in all of this horseshit throughout the world.  Give bin Laden what he wants, and let's see how great he thinks it when the Middle East is left as the worthless fucking pile of dirt it truly is.  Then nobody will have any right to bitch.

I'm dead serious.  I'm so tired of this.  I'm really sick and tired of being involved with issues abroad that are none of our business.  Why did everybody feel the need to look to us when Israel and Lebanon had their little fight last year?  Why is it our job to decide when the Palestinians get their state?  Why are we the ones who are supposed to fix the situation in Darfur?  Why do we still have troops at the DMZ?

Enough is enough.  This World's PoliceTM bullshit is the cause of terrorism.  Shut it all down.  The rest of the world can sort it out.  If Mexico and Canada step out of line, we'll deal with it.  Beyond those two, it's out of our juridiction.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
