President Bush has just delivered a notice that the US will strike first whenever it thinks an "evil" nation is in possession of nuclear weapons. Bush also said the US will ignore the United Nations if the international body doesn't approve of any military decision the US might make. The president said America has a right to self-defence, while making it clear that his concept of self-defence involves attacking whoever he wants regardless of what the rest of the world thinks.

America is a great nation. It has inspired the modern world and has been the model for material progress, democratic freedom, social justice, and almost everything civilized people proud themselves of or aspire to. But since the unfortunate events of a year ago, which were basically the action of a few individuals, the US has become more and more isolated from the world, to the point where it thinks it can do as it pleases and no one has the moral right, much less the military power, to oppose it.

American isolationism is ironic considering how the recent sorrows of its people have been shared by virtually every country on earth. What do you friends from the South think of all this?
