This site offers the best web resources for understanding the incredible changes taking place in the world. It is a basic tenet of this site that all Americans should care about world affairs and America's role on the global stage.
U.S. foreign policy affects almost every aspect of our daily lives. Prices, jobs, the supply of gasoline, taxes, and the life and death of our nation's soldiers are impacted by how we interact with the rest of the world.
We must also be aware of how others are affected by America's actions. At our best, the United States can bring hope and light to the neediest people in the world. At our worst, we bring pain, breed fear and unleash the fury of those who conclude we are part of the same tyranny against which they have always fought.
