More American conservative junk downloaded into The Australian. Dinesh D'Souza's full article can be found here

All we have in this snippet is the good side of the ledger of US foreign policy. The bad side has been granted by D'Souza. So where does that leave us with good and bad resting in our hands?

D' Souza leaves us in no doubt.

"Ultimately America is worthy of our love and sacrifice because, more than any other society, it makes possible the good life, and the life that is good."

I for one ain't going to die for America. It is not my country. I'm an Australian citizen

I couldn't even finish reading that article it was so pathetic. That is was replicated in The Australian is embarassing.

In my experience, Americans who come to Australia would prefer to live and raise their children here than in the US. That speaks for itself.

You would think that if they wanted to persuade that they would be more than powder puff.

Don't they realize that what plays well in the US---to keep stirring American patriotism----falls rather flat in Australia.

I cannot see it as an example of The Australian engaging in irony.
