Required reading today from Andrew Sullivan, and we are pleased to see him back in the saddle. He addresses the feelings of Americans towards European hostility on a war against Iraq.
it's increasingly true that many Americans simply don't care any more. They are used to Europeans instinctually opposing any use of military force; and they are used to reflexive (and often hypocritical) anti-Americanism from the European center and left. But added to this is a relatively new and unanswerable factor: why on earth, apart from good manners, should Americans care about what Europe thinks?
