What Good Has America Done In The Last 10 Years?
My humble contribution barely makes the deadline.
In 1994, an estimated 1MM ethnic Tutsis & their sympathizers (men, women, children) were beaten and hacked to death by rival Hutu militants....Clinton remained passive.
During a 1998 tour of Africa, our president expressed regret, and actually apologized for his failure to intervene in the Rwandan genocide.
In all sincerity bgaty...you ask a legitimately good question. Unfortunately, given the quality of the past decade...it's the kind of question that can bring an uncomfortable silence.
I know there are positives...just wish I had one to offer

What exactly are you trying to do bgaty? Make yourself feel better? Im sure there has been a ton of great work done in the US, by normal people. The people who should be leading the way in doing great work, arent. It reminds me of that article I read two weeks ago, amid the coming recession.
It said "Why are Americans so darned happy" And it was a nicely lovely positive article about why Americans are still the happiest people on Earth apparently. And it went on to say that a primary reason was because of the wealth they enjoyed. Well, if the future is anything to go by, the writer might have egg on his face.
