Right Intention: Thanks, America

Thanks, America

Little Green Footballs found a nice post from an Australian blogger:

Where do I start? I've wanted to say this for a long time. It is unbelievable that America gets badmouthed all the time. America has helped the cause of freedom more than anyone else. First of all I'd like to thank America for saving Australia's butt at the Battle of the Coral Sea in WWII. This prevented the Japanese from landing here, and bringing with them the concept of "comfort women". I think Australia's nature is such that we would have sacrificed 90% of our population rather than hand over any woman. America's intervention meant that we were never required to make that terrible choice. Thanks America!

Then of course there's the fact that you saved Europe's butt, not once but 3 times - WWI, WWII and the Cold War. I don't know why we don't hear more thanks from Europe for this. But in the absence of thanks from ungrateful recipients of American largesse, let me say it instead - thanks America!


Be sure to read the whole thing. It's nice someone has noticed how generous we are.

But it also makes me wonder about the American left. Why do lefties believe that the single best response to any attack on America; whether it be physical, verbal or legal; for grievances real or imagined; is to side with the attacker, prostrate ourselves in front them and beg for forgiveness? America is not perfect by any means. We had and continue to have our dark moments. But America is without question the single most open, free, and generous country this planet has ever seen. We have nothing to apologize for. And it infuriates me to see the American left openly side with our enemies in almost every instance. It's yet another reason I want little to do with liberals these days.
