The Continental Iraq Divide

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2003

For those who oppose the American Invasion of Iraq within America, it is difficult to know what to make of Old Europe's (France and Germany) opposition to the war. Had European powers acted in 1936, perhaps the atrocity of the Shoah could have been avoided, or throughout the 1990s, the disasters of the former Yugoslavia might never have needed NATO involvement. Yet these are not the only concerns for America. As the world's only superpower, the situation that faces America is unlike any of those before, and a touch of humility to temper the arrogance with which America is approaching this task is a necessity, not a luxury.
