I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm reading the subtext incorrectly, but didn't Tony Blair (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/6254253.stm) actually mean that we have to keep intervening overseas in order to remain a world power? That what makes us great is that we can still reach out with the mighty smiting British fist? Otherwise we're just like Germany, which only gets involved when it's absolutely necessary? Or worse, like France? Not sure I like that view of our role in the world. I really think Blair has developed a taste for gunboat diplomacy; I believe he's taken us to war more than any other Prime Minister, and if memory serves more than any American President in history. If that's how he measures our standing in the world, I'm not sure I want any part of it.
I feel a political rant coming on.
