Expanding on her book, Claire Berlinski asserts that Margaret Thatcher saved Great Britain by asserting her iron will -- exemplified in international affairs by the Falklands War and domestically by breaking the coal miners' strike -- and by restoring a moral philosophy that begins with the individual. Berlinski goes on to compare and contrast Barak Obama and Sarah Palin with Thatcher.
Finally, from her vantage point as a six-year resident of Istanbul, Berlinski offers her assessment of precarious Turkey/U.S. relations and the prospect of a truly moderate Islam.
