What? Me worry? Time to Scuttle
By Wesley Prudent, Washington Times

John Kerry is eager to stop the war he helped start so the rest of the world will think better of us. Mr. Kerry worries a lot about what America's critics think of us. He has been in Davos taking the waters and communing with the critics of America at the World Economic Forum.

Someone asked him why the United States failed to deal with Iran before the seriously creepy Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took over two years ago. The John Paul Jones of the Vietnam War took that as his cue to get a lot of things off his manly chest, none of them an answer to the man's question about Iran.

"When we walk away from global warming, Kyoto, when we are irresponsibly slow in moving towards AIDS in Africa, when we don't advance and live up to our own rhetoric and standards," said the man who voted against ratification of the Kyoto treaty, "we send a terrible message of duplicity and hypocrisy. So we have a crisis of confidence in the Middle East -- in the world, really. I've never seen our country as isolated, as much as a sort of international pariah for a number of reasons as it is today."

Once upon a time, an American politician, especially a politician who had been nominated for president of the United States, would not have dreamed of trashing his country abroad, of calling his country a pariah any time, anywhere. But these are mad and treacherous times, when even resentful elderly statesmen feel no constraints of decency, decorum and love of country, and let fly with bottled-up bile.
