A near flawless assessment. I say “near” because it was the last of the Andalusian Moorish kingdoms, not the Ottoman Turk, that was brought down at the end of the Reconquista.
Our remaining allies can expect more of the same, especially as they draw closer to their respective election days. After all, this war is completely optional. Charles Martel, Ferdinand of Aragon, Don John of Austria, and John Sobieski — victors over the Muslims in 732, 1492, 1571, and 1683 respectively — are all quite dead, and theirs is not really an issue that the Europeans can bring themselves to discuss anymore, much less do anything about. Pim Fortuyn is quite dead too, and thereby that question has been settled for all time.
I predict, however, that we here in the States are safe from that for the moment. For the appeasers to win here, a sufficient number of our electorate will need to have forgotten that we are at war. Hence, no attacks on US territory unless we’re “foolish” enough to re-elect “the deserter”.p>God help Christendom, in her hour of dire need. br> — Stephen Foulard br> Houston, Texas /p>
Sadly, Henry’s article is spot-on regarding the recent disaster at the polls in Spain. The specter of appeasement rears its ugly head once again in Europe, and the ghost of Neville Chamberlain now walks the halls of governments there.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
