Tim Montgomerie's new AmericaInTheWorld site launched this week, with the aim of countering the growing tide of anti-americanism in this country and beyond. One of its first actions has been to create a WORLD WITHOUT AMERICA: THE SEQUEL video. Older readers will remember the furore created by the original one created 18 months ago by 18 Doughty Street (see it HERE). The first one got close on half a million views on YouTube. This one is slightly more thoughtful and low budget, and therefore its impact won't be the same. It looks at what the world would be like without the American soldier.
Tim's initative is a worthy one and I fully support his aims, but I do wonder if videos of this length work. IMHO they should be 30 seconds in length and hit you between the eyes.
Like the first video, this one will get a lot of notice in America, but that's not really the point. It's people in this country who need persuading that America is "a good thing". Tim's certainly got his work cut out on that one, and I wish AmericaInTheWorld well.
