George Soros has written an op-ed that’s appearing in Asian papers. This quote says it all:
The Bush administration believes that international relations are relations of power; legality and legitimacy are mere decorations.
They carry the same attitude toward the American people and toward Congress.
Update: it’s worth mentioning that you should read the entire article. His thesis is that America is creating a “supremacy bubble” where our expectations of what we’re capable of have been inflated beyond our actual capability. This thesis gets at what I think scares a lot of people both overseas and here in America about this war and the larger Bush agenda. I realized that my excerpt does absolutely nothing to illustrate what the piece actually says, it’s just an interesting point found within.
