America: Where Are We Today?

Dr. Vladimir A. Masch

What country are we leaving to our children and grandchildren? The state of the union can be defined in three fields: outside of its borders, at those borders, and inside the country.

The situation in the outside world can be best characterized by the title of the June 18 article of Mortimer Zuckerman in U.S. News & World Report, "World Sees Obama As Incompetent and Amateur." There are many similar articles, and only a few positive ones (mostly by well-known Democratic partisans, too).

The war in Afghanistan is going badly: no politically correct war is likely to be winnable. (Carl von Clausewitz used to say that wars are won by those who are more ruthless. Perhaps that verdict should be somewhat moderated, but it should not be forgotten, either. Compassion is desirable after the enemy is defeated.) In his June 21 column, Tony Blankley describes "... our Army's new rules of engagement, which are making our troops the laughing stock of the battlefield" and cannot be read without feeling "... something between nausea and fury -- or both." Okay, let's see what happens under General Petraeus.
