A DEFENSE OF UNILATERALISM….Steven den Beste says:

The only way someone can say “No” is if we bother asking them in the first place.

That’s an admirably straighforward endorsement of unilateralism, I guess. Of course, it’s also the reason that virtually no one in the rest of the world trusts us these days ? and a significant number hate our guts ? but I guess Steven and his pals think our military might is now so hyper-puissant that this really doesn’t matter anymore.

I wonder just how many simultaneous wars Steven thinks we can fight?
