The American Creed

Timothy Garton Ash is in awe:

"One is still gobsmacked by things American Republicans say. Take the glorification of the military, for example. In his [Fort Bragg, N.C.] speech, Bush insisted "there is no higher calling than service in our armed forces". What? No higher calling! How about being a doctor, a nurse, a teacher, an aid worker? Unimaginable that any European leader could say such a thing." (Timothy Garton Ash, Guardian Unlimited, Thursday June 30, 2005).
