Roger-Cohen

Roger Cohen in his New York Times column writes of the U.K. that the decision of its government to heed the will of its people and not join the U.S. in waging aggressive war, “the supreme international crime” as defined at Nuremberg, against Syria signifies that it has lost it way, leaving it “in search of its role in this world”. The U.K. has “turned its back” on the U.S. and “snubbed Washington in its hour of need”, and “the British vote represents a bleak turning point” in history, since this once trusted U.S. ally has failed to help uphold the “Pax Americana” with its “ultimate beneficence”. The U.K. has betrayed “the values of the trans-Atlantic world” and failed to understand “the critical importance of American credibility on the red lines it draws for global security”.

I should like to think that no further comment is necessary.
