Of Course We Are!

USA Is An Overwhelming Force For Good
By Kevin Rudd

FOR the 21st century to be a truly pacific century, a truly peaceful one, it must still have an international rules-based order. It was important for the century just gone, and will be just as important for the century just unfolding. And you cannot deliver a rules-based order in the absence of the underlying ballast of US global strategic power. Carefully husbanded, selectively deployed - without that a rules-based order ultimately withers

America today, moreover, should not disengage from the world post-Iraq and I say that as someone who has been for almost five years a continuing and consistent opponent of the war in Iraq. But I say that despite Iraq, the world needs America. I say that despite Iraq, America is an overwhelming force for good in the world. It is time we sang that from the world's rooftops.

Donal-The reason we are so hated(one of many I know), IS the fact that America still stands for better than the rest of the world!
And backs it up too. It's gross envy and jealousy!

I think so, too. That seems to be lost on the Democrats.
