Item description for Why We Fight: Moral Clarity and the War on Terrorism by William J. Bennett...

National morals arbiter Bennett takes America's reaction to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and uses it as a platform to discuss a half dozen of the major social and political issues including the role of pacifism, patriotism, "Islamophobia" and support for Israel. Updated with a new chapter on potential military action against Iraq.

Publishers Description
The events of September 11, 2001 were an unforgettable tragedy, but they also revealed that the spirit of America is strong and undiminished. Still, a small group of influential public intellectuals, writers, members of the media, and academics preached self-doubt about America, wondered whether we brought the attacks on ourselves, and opposed any military action to bring the attackers to justice. In this book William Bennett takes up and refutes the many myths and misconceptions about America's character and role in world affairs that have become fashionable among the nation's elites. He also presents a case for a pre-emptive strike on Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq. The morning of September 12 dawned with a stunning moral clarity that has guided the actions of many Americans, both her leaders and her citizens. In clear and compelling straightforward language Bennett seeks to preserve that clarity in order to ensure that our national resolve does not falter in these trying times. This paperback edition is updated and includes new chapters reflecting current events. In particular, it includes the debate over the pros and cons of engaging in military action against Iraq.

Reviews - What do customers think about Why We Fight: Moral Clarity and the War on Terrorism?

Stamps out Political Correctness  Jan 15, 2007
For too long we have allowed the PC view of the world to control our thoughts, making some of the most absurd positions the accepted "truth". William Bennett here lays it all out in a succinct and clear fashion, helping bring us back to reality, and showing us why we must maintain and promote moral clarity in the face of sworn enemies.
We cannot assume that all nations and peoples will act benevolently towards us when we do so towards them; that is the utopian wishful thinking of the 60's which history clearly debunks. We also cannot lose sight of the fact that Islam is not just a religion but also a political system whose major tenet is that of converting the world to its religion, and submitting it to its political control. That, above all else, has been behind Muslim agression for 1300 years, and the "excuse of the week" (Israel, our presence in the Gulf, etc.) is only used as a means of continuing the Jihad duty to which all Muslims are sworn and to convince ignorant Westerners of the justness of their "struggle".
Read this book and bring yourself back to reality.
Well done, clear message  Sep 9, 2006
The media dwells on American actions, with their armchair quarterbarck view. We face difficult decisions but the existential threat is real - and the need to face those threats is clear.
Very, very sad  Jun 1, 2006
Bennett's own logic undermines itself. He is in essence arguing that to be a truly patriotic American, one must check your brains in at the door and unquestioningly accept everything our government tells us. Welcome to the machine.

Our country was founded on the premise that individuals should have the capability to think for themselves and critique those in power. It's time that we rediscovered that to appropriately confront those in power is true American patriotism.
This book is terrible  May 9, 2006
I was reading a debate between Noam Chomsky and William Bennet on their new books, so I decided to buy them both. I won't review Mr. Chomsky's book here, but Mr. Bennet's book is terrible. I thought it was bad enough to actually write a review so other people do not buy this book. The message is basically, if you love your country, agree and support what your government does.
What the hell is wrong with Americans?  Mar 22, 2006
I am a British citizen. I have just read this book and it left me stunned. I can only conclude that the author is barking mad and the positive reviews of this book are written by people who were educated in DisneyLand.

If this book made you "feel good" for being a patriotic, right-wing, conservative American then all I can say is: Use the internet to LEARN stuff instead of looking at porn sites.
