All of a sudden, vehemently anti-dollar factions in London and the United States are rushing to maintain the reserve role of America’s beleaguered currency.

After plenty of provocations from the West, and repeated warnings from the Kremlin, the Red Army command went into Afghanistan in force, displaying not only impressive military capabilities and strategic planning, but primarily, an iron show of strategic determination.

The Carter administration helped topple a powerful ally in the Shah
of Iran, helped install a maniac cult dictatorship in the Shah’s place, manipulated the maniac into a ferociously anti-American posture, and now wants the maniac to ally with the U.S.A. against the Soviet Union. Understandably, Carter’s GOP opponents-who supported every aspect of the policy-are now throwing “national unity” overboard in favor of some political profit-taking.
