Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

the politics of isolation


A Salon article on how the US administration is playing the isolationist game by ignoring international forums such as the World Summit on Sustainable Development (a.k.a. Earth Summit) this week. From the article:

"Not only have delegates repeatedly been quizzed on U.S. policy and its impact, but some of the most vocal criticisms have in fact been delivered in American accents. Furthermore, instead of asserting America's independence, its refusal to agree to any binding commitments here has suggested to many participants that it is suffering a bout of myopia."

One would wish it was only myopia and not arrogance or maybe even ignorance on the part of some US decision makers...
