Bumping you on my earlier post. Basically, what I'm suggesting is that the next phase in the campaign will be the final Arafatization of the UN, and the assembly of a new "Liberty Alliance" to replace it. I have had some more time to think about it and I'm increasingly convinced that (a) this is what Bush is going to do and (b) it's an insanely great plan. There are so many angles to it, I don't know where to begin. To be continued...

From Stefan Stackhouse on another thread: "The price, of course, is that the rupture between the US & UK on the one hand and France, Germany, and Belgium on the other, will become total and permanent. NATO will not survive, neither will the UN, and the EU may split in two. It is not inconceivable that France and Germany might even break diplomatic relations with us.
"This all might not be seen as actually being much of a downside. The point is, of course, that the old order has come to a close, the world is in the midst of one of those times of profound change, and the world that follows for the next decade or more will look very much different from the one we have become accustomed to for the past decade.
As I said on another thread, "History is sweeping away the cobwebs of the past."
I agree with both of you that this is a huge watershed in history. Countries are having to take stock in a way they haven't had to do for over half a century.
