From Canada: "Most Honest" Commentaries on the West

Michael Coren, a well-known Canadian journalist and host of The Arena on Canada's Sun News Network interviewed Pat Buchanan tonight about his new book to be released tomorrow and wrote the following review:

"[Pat Buchanan's] latest book - Suicide of a Superpower - is one of the most honest, and worrying, commentaries on the West in many years. 'The transformation has been dramatic and unique in our history,' [Buchanan] says, 'and the reason America has and will lose its greatness is that we are no longer unified.
