As intimated by Charles Krauthammer’s

As intimated by Charles Krauthammer’s column, the doctrine of liberal internationalism applies the suicidal impulse at the core of liberalism to the most elementary questions of self-defense. Thus the Clinton doctrine: the use of American military force may be justified–but never in the national interest of the United States. President Bush’s UN speech states with admirable clarity our intention to act against Iraq with or without the blessing of the UN. But doesn’t Krauthammer’s column call for a more thoroughgoing reassessment of the American commitment to the United Nations as an institution, and call for citizens like us to begin the work of discrediting the political theory of “world government” represented by the United Nations?
