With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Must Read from the Times.

The White House's theory that we don't need any friends in this small world of ours is being put to the test on Bush's visit to Austria (his 17th to Europe).

Here's a snippet-

"That's absurd!" Mr. Bush declared, dismissing a reporter's suggestion that most Europeans regard the United States as a bigger threat to global stability than North Korea, which has proclaimed it has nuclear weapons, and Iran, which is suspected of developing them.

I hope Americans realize what kind of problem we have on our hands here. Our international reputation- rightly or wrongly- is worse than North Korea. It's sad that this has become a debate.
