THE US...and Europe

John Heelan of the UK quotes: " As for the Europeans, it is their choice to sit more or less on the sidelines and criticize. They have done it before. The results speak for themselves. If they feel they have been relegated to the bench by the US, perhaps it is time for them to get back in the game. Sometimes it is lonely at the top".

John comments: "It is probably such self-satisfied smugness like the above that angers Europeans (at least one!). Bush's statement "You are either with us or against us!" makes the US the supreme arbiter of righteousness- a position that surely demands a solitary (and lonely) position?"
