Yan­kee re­pul­sion

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

“Stop the world, I want to get off,” comes to mind af­ter read­ing this bleak as­sess­ment of world af­fairs of­fered by Pa­trick J. Buchanan, ed­i­tor emer­i­tus of the Amer­i­can Con­ser­va­tive:

“Europe re­jects U.S. lead­er­ship. Rus­sians, re­vert­ing to au­toc­racy, are putting Rus­sia first. China has be­come a great power ri­val in Asia and Africa. With the Iraq and Le­banon wars, Amer­ica has never been more iso­lated in the Mid­dle East. [Pres­i­dent] Bush would not dare visit the re­gion as [Richard] Nixon did. Iran and North Korea are de­fy­ing us and the U.N. openly. Anti-Amer­i­can­ism is ram­pant in the hemi­sphere, and neo-Marx­ist pop­ulism has tri­umphed in Venezuela, Nicaragua and Bo­livia and was only nar­rowly de­feated in Mex­ico and Peru.”
