Reader comment on item: Hezbollah's Victory, Israel's Decline

Submitted by Kimberly Ferguson (United States), Feb 3, 2004 at 09:20

It's becoming painfully apparent that the youth of Israel, and now America, are being sent to the slaughter for the "corporate" good. It is increasingly difficult for me to believe in the just, moral cause that I thought Israel and America were fighting for. But it seems that what Barbara Olson said in her book "The Final Days, 2001" is true everywhere we turn: "Liberal-left progressive politics meets traditional corruption resulting in a synthesis of boundless arrogance and entitlement."
General MacArthur in 1945 described it well: "History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster."
