A reminder of the state of America's image abroad under George Bush, from Jay Nordlinger. Unfortunately, Bush's critics can't, or won't, acknowledge his ultimate success. They'd rather go on and on about allies being alienated by the Iraq War, when in reality, those countries (especially in Western Europe) that ignored Bush's call for action have seen their citizens elect to throw out the ruling parties in power there. So that point seems moot to me. The man did more for Africa than anyone, and has improved relations with India to the highest point in India's existence while simultaneously negotiating a permanent peace between India and Pakistan, without alienating Pakistan. Those seem like foreign policy triumphs to me.
