While agree with the writers critque of modern Eueopeans, I think he forgot the other half of the destruvtive equation..Neo- Conservatives love their Fossil fuels, especially oil, and The Moslem Gulf contains much of that oil!! In another words while Conservatives blast liberals( deservingly so) about their weakness to stand up to Radical Islam, it is Conservative Energy policies which favour big oil and fossil fuels which keep USA addicted to resources owned in part by Islamists ( IRAN, SAUIDI-ARABIA etc..).. Our wealth is being sucked dry from right beneath our noses , as GM, FORD, Chrysler continue to saturate Americans with their gas-guzzlin autos!!! You do not have to be a " TREE HUGGIN Liberal" to know our energy policy under the so-called conservative Bush Administration has crippled our economy ( National debt/trade debt) and sent our wealth abroad to Radical Muslim States such as Iran, Saudi-Arabia etc.. Add Venezula, Nigeria, Iraq which are either unstable or anti-American you have a energy policy that is suicidal, destructive, and against( in the long term) our National Security.

While Liberals put their heads in the sand, Conservatives continue to give away our wealth and Future to Radical Oil Shiekdoms!! Plug-in hybrids, Solar panels, wind energy,responsible oil exploration and Higher CAFE standards are good for America, bad for Islamic Terrorists!!! Bob PS>We need a Conservative/Moral foreign policy and a PROGRESSIVE ENERGY POLICY!!!

Thanks, Bob
