God Bless America!

landing on Omaha Beach, June 6, 1944

 one fell swoop Vladimir Putin has given birth to a new world order. The US, formerly a colonizer state, the unwanted suitor, 
The Ugly American and even, at times, pariah now has found its services in demand. Finland and Sweden are just two states lining up for admission to NATO, a very American sphere of influence. The unspeakable suffering of a barbaric war has changed the equation of international politics. The Russian Federation is the boisterous braggart arriving drunk and uninvited to the party, while many countries afraid of being run over by lawless autocrats are running into Uncle Sam’s open arms. After the debacle of Libya, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, America’s stock has risen to new highs, along with the credibility of the Biden administration (at least on the international front). Almost 60 years after Vietnam, the image of the United States, on the world stage, has been returned to what it had been on June 6, 1944 when American troops liberated Europe from fascism.
