in reply to the question - YES
If attacked, would the Russians, Chinese, and Indians, directly retaliate against the Saudi-Wahhabis? Did Wahhabi money support last years Beslan carnage? Certainly Wahhabi money is linked to the Islam inspired civil war in Chechnya. Yet the Russians have done nothing to directly attack Wahhabism in its lair in Saudi Arabia. Why has America failed to directly attack the Saudi source of Wahhabi funding and ideology? When will America defend itself against these sociopaths? Wahhabism is a virulent cancer that is metastasizing throughout the world.
Excellent article. That pretty much sums up my attitudes.
I may have interpreted your question a bit differently, but yes I am weary of the word "world", because every time a liberal opens his/her jaws, something sputters out about "the world", "reaching out to the EU," "the United Nations," etc. Maybe we should say "mundo" instead, since the R.D.D.B.s are wearing out the other word.
P.S. And no, "Worlds of Fun" doesn't seem as enjoyable as it used to.
Victor Hanson always has something worthwhile to say. He makes you think about all the various angles of current issues.
Yes, I think Americans are becoming world weary. We shouldn't have to do it all, and we don't want to do it all anymore. Other countries should step up to the plate and accept some responsibility for the "neighborhood". In the years immediately following WWII, they were not able to help; they had to rebuild their own countries. Almost 60 years have passed since that time. They have gotten back on their feet and now have the resources to carry some of this load.
If all the countries that have made pledges for South Asia disaster relief actually come through with the money, it looks like the tide may be turning. They are beginning to use some of their own resources when there is a global need--instead of expecting America to do it all. I say more power to them and hope that their newfound sense of responsibility for the "neighborhood" continues.
