Agree with Mr. Hillyer regarding the utterly depressing state of affairs around the world.
His comments regarding France (ugh!), Spain, Italy and the rest of Europe, while true, one should also remember that these second- and third-rate “powers” have always been this way — unreliable and teetering on the precipice of sanity.
The U.K., however, deserves more trust. While Mr. Hillyer may be dazzled by Tony Blair and his unwavering support for the war being fought in Iraq, it should be remembered that he is less trusted at home and, even, the less gullible abroad. It might well turn out that Labour’s dour Mr. Brown or the opportunistic Mr. Cameron could continue this support in Iraq and not leave it high and dry as Mr. Hillyer suggests.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
