Victor Davis Hanson: "Every bit as important as our military response and vigilance, is our moral tone"

Mr. Hanson recommends a tone along the following lines...

“Dear radical Muslims, you, not us, created your present misery through religious intolerance, gender apartheid, statism, corruption, tribalism, anti-scientific fundamentalism, and autocracy, and we have neither regrets about our own success nor responsibilities for your own self-induced miseries, unfortunate as they are.”

BBC Blames U.S. Checks and Balances for Failure of Copenhagen Conference

In an article entitled "Why did Copenhagen fail to deliver a climate deal?" a BBC climate change extremist resents the ability of the American people to prevent their President from committing them to a treaty against their will. U.S. Democracy is ranked #2 among 8 supposed reasons the summit failed:

2. THE US POLITICAL SYSTEM

Just about every other country involved in the UN talks has a single chain of command; when the president or prime minister speaks, he or she is able to make commitments for the entire government.

Not so the US. The president is not able to pledge anything that Congress will not support, and his inability to step up the US offer in Copenhagen was probably the single biggest impediment to other parties improving theirs.

Viewed internationally, the US effectively has two governments, each with power of veto over the other.

Doubtless the founding fathers had their reasons. But it makes the US a nation apart in these processes, often unable to state what its position is or to move that position - a nightmare for other countries' negotiators.


Yes, thank God the founding fathers foresaw the schemes of power-grabbing European tyrants like yourself and built a system that protects us from you. Can you believe the level of arrogance? How dare a bothersome detail like the US system of government prevent a climate deal!

The summit failed because "global warming" is and always has been a farce.

Real Reformers

With all the leftist references to the imaginary "vast majority of moderate Muslims" sometimes it's easy to forget that reformers really do exist in the Muslim world. That they are truly tiny in numbers and railing against 1400 years of Islamic precedent only speaks to the bravery of the individuals who put their lives on the line to spark reform from within.
