Where is the West?

I was listening to a replay of the Neal Boortz show this morning and he mentioned this column by Thomas Sowell.

Thomas Sowell:
"Two generations of being insulated from the reality of the international jungle, of not having to defend their own survival because they have been living under the protection of the American nuclear umbrella, have allowed too many Europeans to grow soft and indulge themselves in illusions about brutal realities and dangers.


The very means of their salvation have been demonized for decades in anti-nuclear movements and protesters calling themselves 'anti-war.' But there is a huge difference between being anti-war in words and being anti-war in deeds.


How many times, in its thousands of years of history, has Europe gone 60 years without a major war, as it has since World War II? That peace has been due to American nuclear weapons, which was all that could deter the Soviet Union's armies from marching right across Europe to the Atlantic Ocean."
