America’s Turbulent Airways

Before they can mash the potatoes this Thanksgiving, an estimated 27 million (AP) Americans will have to board an airplane. In what has become an unsavory holiday tradition, many of these passengers will endure long lines, delayed flights, and maddening security screenings. At a time of year when he would usually be pardoning a turkey, President Bush sought to lessen the traffic jam with an announcement that he would make military airspace available to civilian aircraft during the holiday travel rush.

“Anglo-American Wasps” vs. “Waspophobes”

Henry A. Kissinger Senior Fellow for U.S. Foreign Policy Walter Russell Mead sees the current conflicts in the Middle East as the latest challenge to the liberal, capitalist, and democratic world system that the Anglo-Americans are trying to build. What we need now, he says, is a diplomacy of civlizations based on a deeper understanding of the recurring conflicts between the liberal world system and its foes.
