For you "peaceniks" and other "Citizen's of the World" Out there who believe "Brotherly Love" will put an end to all wars ...

I can imagine what a laughing stock our Western Democracies have become in the eyes of the New BIG Three : China, Russia and India. Emerging economic and military powers of Asia who will impose their global vision on the rest of us. Our presence on the Security Council of the UN is also becoming a subject of parody given how clumsily we are handling the Libyan Crisis.
