Bush’s Foreign Policy--Should America Go It Alone?
In recent months, some highly publicized European views about President Bush’s foreign policy ‹ and toward America ‹ have ranged from skepticism to outright opposition. Europeans espousing such views have been angered by Bush’s dismissal of the Kyoto global warming treaty and shaken by his proposal for an American nuclear missile defense system. They say that
American use of the death penalty shows the face of a retrograde America.
These European critics complained of American "triumphalism" and cultural
"imperialism"; they claim America is a hegemonic hyper-power, and is aiming
to go it alone. That, say the Europeans, is not good. Bush’s trip to
Europe in June somewhat mollified his critics. But the end of the Cold War

power. And no one yet knows quite what to do about it.
